Think What A Simple Smile Can Do (Part 1)
You may think a simple smile is just it — a simple smile.
We think a simple smile is not just it – for us, a simple smile is more than simple.
Unbeknownst to many of us, a smile packs a hidden power that it can unleash every time we lift our cheeks and feel our laugh lines wrinkle.
Let’s go through some of the famous quotes from similarly famous personalities to prove the power of a simple smile:
- We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do – Mother Theresa
- Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life – Yoko Ono
- Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. – Leo Buscaglia
- I have witnessed the softening of the hardest of hearts by a simple smile. – Goldie Hawn
- Smile, it’s free therapy. – Douglas Horton
You must have noticed that one recurring message in the sample quotes is that a simple smile can change a life – and change it for the better.
Indeed, a smile, simple as it is, can turn a life around. More than that, it can even save a life. That’s how powerful a smile is.
A Simple Smile Can Change Your Life
In an article called Awesome Benefits of Smiling, which appeared on Inspiyr, Alyssa Detweiler lists down, well, the awesome benefits of smiling.
In our blog, we group said benefits into two – first, those that can change your life; and second, those that can save your life. Let’s start off with the former.
Here are what we call the “You’ll be” benefits:
1. You’ll be more attractive
Smiles are pretty darn attractive for more reasons than one. A smile suggests that you’re personable, easy going, and empathetic. In fact, a study in the European Journal of Social Psychology found that smiling actually makes you more attractive to those you smile at.
2. You’ll be more approachable
Studies have found that people are more willing to engage socially with others who are smiling. A smile is an inviting facial expression that tells people you are willing to talk and interact with them.
3. You’ll be more comfortable
Our natural tendency is to stick to things that are familiar, but smiling decreases this need. A study found that smiling can make you more comfortable in situations you would otherwise feel awkward in.
4. You’ll be more trustworthy
If you want to improve your credibility, simply smile more. Trusting doesn’t come easily to many, but smiling at someone may help.
5. You’ll be a better leader
If you’re in a position of power, or want to be, smiling may be the key to your success. A group of researchers from The University of Montpellier discovered that smiling is a more effective leadership technique than having great management responsibilities.
(On part two of this blog, let’s tackle the benefits that can save your life.)
Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with a good smile. It does not mean they are unhappy or stressed out or depressed. In fact, they are happy and contented. In fact also, they want to smile but they simply can’t do it like they want to. Something is holding them back.
Part of the reason has something to do with the source of the smile – the mouth and everything therein such as the lips, teeth, gums, etc.
Who would like to flash a hearty smile if his teeth are crooked? Who would like grin from ear to ear if there are “blanks” in his dentures that need to be filled in, more particularly if said “blanks” are located in front?
