(Before It's News)

The most attractive people are the ones that smile often. For some, it’s a natural thing that comes easy, but for others, it may seem like a heavy duty to fulfill. No matter what problems prevent you from smiling, the truth is that it’s a crown of confident and happy people.

The smile is a symbol of emotional content and a powerful weapon against the surrounding negativity. It’s the perfect way to attract quality people and opportunities of value around you. If you are ready to let some sunshine in and radiate there are several ways to improve your smile.  

Fake It Until You Make It

Let’s be clear, a fake smile is recognizable a mile away. The scientists call it a “social” smile and it’s basic without including our eye socket, which is a true representative of a genuine smile. While going to the store, work or meeting an acquaintance, we automatically give “mouth corners” smile without thinking about it.  As a result, many people give generic smiles daily.

If you want to improve the faking and adopt more natural look, practice by:

  • Looking in the mirror – See what others see by smiling in the mirror. Practice the use of the muscles and imagine various scenarios to help you improve. If the look of the teeth is unappealing and is preventing you from smiling, go to the dentist or a clinic and try new techniques like the Invisalign Frankston dentists offer.

  • Asking a familiar face – Don’t be afraid to admit you have a problem. Ask a friend or a family member you are the closest with for their opinion. Use their advice to perfect your smile and remove the obstacles that block that beautiful smile you have in you.

  • Discovering the secrets of your face – There are many unused muscles in our faces waiting to be discovered. By practicing for 20 minutes a day, you should feel sore muscles, which is a sign that you are activating them. This way you will discover the necessary poses and learn them for the future.

  • Start practicing your smile on others – Once you think you’ve nailed the perfect smile, practice on others. Ask for feedback and the impression you give away.


Think Happy Thoughts

Imagining joyful situations before they happen is a very useful method of boosting positive energy. It will improve your posture and  lead to a genuine smile. When talking with someone new, think about your loved ones and imagine you are speaking with them.

This will connect you with people quicker and make you seem like the best person to be around. Also, this exercise can be practiced while texting and speaking over the phone. Don’t limit yourself with one-on-one meetings – practice all available ways to become a person you admire.

Smiling Advantages  

It’s a fact that smiling improves the immune system and makes you happier. When we smile the brain releases endorphins, which reduce the stress and put us in a good mood. In addition, the body releases more white blood cells than it usually does, so it is better able to fight with foreign intruders and infectious diseases. Apart from these facts, there are several more:

  • You become more attractive – Everyone is attracted to confident people. Their radiate smile has energy all want to be a part of.

  • Smiling makes a leader – A genuine smile bonds people and makes one seem trustworthy. Smile more often for loyal companions and popularity.

  • Improves productivity – Carrying your smile to work means bringing a creative mood booster as a gift. This way, your performance, and performance in general, will be improved. This statement is confirmed by Andrew Oswald’s research.

  • It’s contagious – Smiling is free and a great option for cheering people. Once you shared a smile, you will get a portion of your positive energy back.  

  • Gives more positive experiences and opportunities

Use all available tricks until you master that signature smile of yours. When it becomes a routine and a daily activity, you will eventually embrace it as a natural thing. It will open your horizons, change the way you look at the world and make you a happier and healthier person. Be a positive role model and set an example for others to follow. It will enrich your life in so many unexpected ways.
