Smile More and Be More Creative

By Tom Herrin

A facial expression may seem like a simple movement, but it also may be a way of communicating a lot of different things.  It is pretty obvious that it indicates joy or sadness.  It may also be seen as a sign of confidence or insecurity.  Whatever the feelings expressed by it, there is a good chance that many people around are affected.  In the case of a smile, not only are the receivers of the smile affected, but the person who does the smiling is able to gain some things as well.  The act of smiling can affect health as well as other things.

It May Increase Attraction

A smile can be a pretty good friend to those who wish to have more appeal.  It is thought that smiling may make people appear younger, by as much as three years.  There is often an almost automatic connection between someone who smiles and whoever receives that smile.  Half of the time, people smile back.  A smile may be perceived as a means of expressing empathy.  Many people seem to be drawn to those who smile.

It Can Bolster Health

Smiling can have a good effect on the body.  It is known to release endorphins that can help to kill pain.  It can also help to relax the body so that it is able to react to things that may cause illness.  Smiling can lower blood pressure and reduce stress.  Many times, the two may seem to go together, anything that lessens stress can be a major benefit.  According to one study, people who smile more may increase their longevity by as much as seven years.

It May Improve Job Performance

Everyone is probably aware that you are often a better worker when you are happy.  Joy has a way of making the task seem less difficult.  People who smile may appear to be more trustworthy.  Their smiles are also somewhat contagious in that others may feel more acceptance.  One study showed that they are more creative, indicating that they may be better at solving work-related problems.  It has been observed that those who smile more may be more likely to be considered for an advancement in their jobs.  With the ease of what is required to smile, it could be a pretty easy way to look good, be healthier, and get ahead.
