Dr. Sweeny Encourages You to Smile
Are you aware of all the benefits a simple smile can provide to you and your health? It’s evident that when you smile or you see someone smiling, it indicates happiness. However, suffering from tooth loss may not always motivate you to smile because you feel insecure or embarrassed.
Dr. Valery Sweeny can restore smiles impacted by missing teeth in Silver Lake with dental implants, allowing patients to enjoy the many benefits a healthy smile has to offer. See how your smile can be beneficial to you, your health, and the people around you.
Boost Your Mood
Whenever you’re feeling down, have you ever tried to cheer yourself up with a smile? It may seem difficult to force out a happy expression when you’re sad, but it can actually be a huge mood booster.
When we smile, our brain releases neurotransmitters that contribute to improving our moods and well-being. So, next time you need to lighten your spirits, try smiling and see how you positively react.
Relieve Unwanted Stress
Smiling can also help alleviate stress. Being in a stressful situation will generally increase blood pressure and heart rate, but by simply giggling or smiling, you can quickly reduce these effects.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and need to take a step back, ask someone to tell you a joke or think about something that makes you happy. This will help reduce your blood pressure which relaxes your muscles and slows down your heart rate.
After you experience this calming technique, it’ll be easy for you to relieve any stress that may arise in any complicated or troubled situation.
Meet New People
Whenever you’re out in public, it’s easy to observe the people around you and the expression on their face usually contributes to the way you perceive them.
If you see someone who has an angry look on their face, it’s likely you’ll try to avoid them. Whereas when you see someone light up with a grin from ear to ear, you may feel more inclined to approach them.
Smiling is a great trait to have as it helps make you appear friendly, happy, and more approachable to others. A new friendship or potential job opportunity can all begin with just the simple act of smiling.
Improve Your Health
Did you know that when you smile or laugh you’re providing great benefits to your immune system and pain tolerance? Positive thoughts and high energy are heightened when your body and brain release “feel-good” chemicals which help act as natural pain relievers and fight against illnesses.
Next time you want to try to prevent a cold or alleviate pain in your body, keep a smile on your face or watch a comedy show so you can continue to laugh and stay positive all day long.
It may come to a surprise to many, but a smile doesn’t only contribute to a healthy, happy, youthful appearance, but it can also lengthen your lifespan.
Being optimistic and focusing on the good side of things will help you remain happier throughout your life and live longer.
