Dr. Jockin Enhances Lives with Restored Smiles
When you’re having a bad day, do you ever wonder what could possibly turn it around? What will make you feel eager and excited about the day again? Smiling. This subtle expression can affect your brain, body, and even the mood of others around you. Whether it’s an authentic smile or you’re forcing it out, you’ll still experience a happier, more positive result in the end.
If you’re someone who doesn’t typically like to shine their smile, Dr. Jockin can restore and enhance your oral health that’s been damaged by missing teeth, trauma, tooth decay, or any other dental complication. Read about the life-changing benefits that smiling can provide for your overall wellness and health.
Smiling and Your Psychological Health
You may notice when you flash a joyful expression that your brain reacts positively and you feel refreshed and light-hearted. This is because the act of smiling triggers neural messaging which benefits your health and happiness.
Stress can be quickly relieved when you smile because your “feel-good” neurotransmitters release chemicals in your body called dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin. These chemicals help you relax, which lowers your rate and blood pressure.
Additionally, when serotonin is released from your smile, it aids as an antidepressant. You won’t have any negative side effects like you would with a prescription. You’ll quickly see an impact on your mood and notice that you’re much more enjoyable to be around.
Smiling and Your Body
Did you know that most people look at someone’s smile when they first meet and that becomes a major determination whether they’re attractive or not? In a study done by Golle, Mast & Lobmaier, they found attractiveness is strongly influenced by the intensity of a smile. People around you will see you as friendlier, attractive, and more sincere.
Along with your physical appearance improving, laughing is surprisingly a great exercise. When you laugh, your lungs expand which helps stretch your abdominal muscles and stimulate homeostasis. It’s similar to cardiovascular exercise where your lungs are filled with oxygen and your cells are replenished throughout the body.
How Your Smile Can Help Others
The act of smiling is contagious. When you see someone smiling at you, what do you do? Frown? Look angry? No, you’ll most likely smile back at them. Your brain persuades you to smile back at someone which helps contribute to those positive chemicals your brain releases.
So, when you want to spread your joy to the people around you, walk around with a genuine smile rather than a poker face. Not only will you feel happy about yourself, but you’ll instantly improve someone else’s day without even knowing it.
