Smiling Facts

It’s a simple fact. A smile does much more than express happiness. We usually think about smiling when trying to give our best appearance for others, job interviews, performances, etc. We also smile when we find something funny, or are about to laugh. In general, we don’t give our smiles much thought, they just happen. We also don’t give our smiles the credit they deserve. There have been numerous research studies on smiling and laughter, and the effects that they have on others and ourselves.

Here are a few facts you may not have been aware of :

1. Smiles Are Contagious. Research has shown that people have trouble frowning or being sad when looking at others who are smiling. We tend to smile unconsciously while watching others smile. A smiling person walks into a room and brings happiness with them. Smile a lot and you will draw people to you.

2. Smiling Can Be A Stress Reliever. Endorphins are released immediately upon smiling. Even a forced smile has the same effect on our bodies. The endorphin release will change your mood allowing stress to be relieved. Stress can really show on our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you’ll be better able to take action.

3. The Ability to Smile is with us at Birth. many of our behaviors are learned behaviors from our surroundings, but scientists believe that all babies are born with the ability to smile. Even babies with disabilities are able to smile at birth.

4. Smiling is an Immune System Booster. Smiling has a definite physical effect on our bodies. Smiling causes us to feel more relaxed which in turn equals a healthier, stronger body. Fight the flu and colds with smiles.

5. Smiling is Easier Than Frowning. It is a proven fact that your body has to expend more energy frowning than it does smiling. More muscles are used when frowning than smiling.

6. Women Smile More Than Men. Women smile at a higher percentage than men. They are also known to make better eye contact with people.

7. There are 19 Different Types of Smiles. Researchers have identified 19 distinct types of smiles and placed them into 2 categories: Polite and Sincere smiles. Polite smiles use fewer muscles whereas sincere smiles use more muscles.

8. Smiles are more Attractive than Makeup. Studies show that almost 70% of people find women more attractive when they smile than when they are wearing makeup.

9. Smiling can use up to 53 muscles. 

10. Smiling is a Universal Sign of Happiness. While hand shakes, hugs, and bows all have varying meanings across cultures, smiling is known around the world and in all cultures as a sign of happiness and acceptance.

11. It is the first attribute people notice in others. A smile is the first thing someone will notice about you. It sends a message which makes you more likeable, accessible, valued, and more likely to succeed in the work force and in relationships. A smile leaves a lasting impression on others.

Smiling Conclusion

The universal symbol of happiness is a smile. A smile can change the world for you, and all those around you. There are plenty of reasons to smile, usually without thought or planning, but with just a bit of effort, smiling can become a great new habit for you. Remember the positive nature of a smile,  everything looks brighter from behind a smile. Smile….pass it on!!
