It may somehow be the glow or I may rather say "the flicker" amidst two people not knowing each other. It's the glitz which intensify the feeling. The sparkle that lights up the very moment of the picture: it can murmur like the sound of the wind or cry loud with devotion and eagerness. It can merge people even during times of frenzy fascination, when the moments of illusion is a better place than reality. It's your smile! A very convenient means to communicate, establish a broader relationship and in one way or the other, build a connection. Nonetheless, everything is just an illusion with your smile broken, your teeth discolored or damaged, thus, creating a barrier between you and your suppose-to-be much happier life.
Smiling boosts an incredible display of natural responses, some feedbacks, from either of the two or both the receiver and the giver of the smile. The same is like a virus contaminating every face it encounters and is somehow proven. There is that part of the brain that is responsible for our facial expression of smiling or mimicking or rather simulating. They key ingredient here is that thing called dopamine, the amazing feel-good neurotransmitter. And because pleasure is such a dynamic mover and achiever, anything that releases dopamine becomes chronic and perpetual. In other words, it is quite "addicting". Another smile dwells in the limbic cortex, an unconscious automatic response area. So if you are smiling at someone, it’s likely they can’t help but smile back. But if they don’t, they are making a hard time to avoid it.
Every time you smile, your body produces a great quantity of antibodies which may be responsible for the big boost in your immune system. That's why, smiling doesn't just make you feel good, but it will definitely make you healthier, too. Smiling lets you feel unwind and loosen up every hard situation we encounter in life. The same is good for our health which as a matter of fact releases both, endorphins, those "feel-good" hormones, and serotonin, a natural stress-reducer.
We may sometimes be force to ride in unidentified cruise in life. Try to see the better side on every part of it. And if you would like to smile more, just for health, to loosen up, and not to forget for allure and attractiveness, why not give a little of your time and effort to visit your friendly dentist in town? Let's start to appreciate and enjoy the benefits of smiling. Who knows, you might be surprise at how much impact a little smile can make into your life.
