    7 Reasons Why Smiling is the Most Important Thing You’ll Do Today

    Posted on June 22nd, 2015 by Dr. Peter Tomaselli

    Our business at Chicago Smile Design is making the most of your smile. But why is it that we dedicate our lives to improving smiles? What is it about a smile that is so important? Here’s a list of seven reasons why smiling just might be the most important thing you do all day.  
    • Feel better

      Studies have shown that the act of smiling releases endorphins in our brain, which actually improves our mood. The next time you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up, just crack a smile! You’d be surprised how much better you’ll feel.  
    • Make others feel better

      Smiling is contagious. Our brains are wired to mimic others when we see them smile. Smiling at others makes them happier. Smile at someone and you might just make their day!  
    • Reduce stress

      When we release more endorphins, we reduce the amount of cortisol in our brains. Cortisol is the chemical associated with feeling stressed. When you smile, you can change the chemical makeup in your brain to reduce the stress you feel.  
    • Stay healthy

      Smiling more is linked to better health! Not only does smiling reduce stress, it makes you more relaxed and helps your immune system function better. Some studies even suggest that smiling is linked to a longer lifespan. Smiling more can mean living a longer, healthier life.  
    • Make friends

      Smiling makes us more approachable. When you smile, people find it easier to talk to you and find you more likeable. This is a great way to improve your social life. Meeting new people becomes much easier on everyone with a smile!  
    • Be attractive

      Polls reveal that a smile is the number one most attractive feature of a person. Your smile is the sexiest thing you can wear! Going on a date? Don’t forget to brush, floss, and show off those pearly whites!  
    • Be more confident

      Smiling portrays confidence. The more you smile and the happier you are, the more self-confident you become. Smiling helps you seem more attractive, successful, and self-assured to others. Who knows? It could even land you that dream job! This is just a snippet of the long list of reasons why smiling is so important. That’s why at Chicago Smile Design, we make it our responsibility to make your smile the best that it can be. If you want to improve your smile, give us a call at (312) 664 2100. And remember: Smile more often!
