When in Doubt, Put a Smile on Your Face to Erase Confusion or Tension

Something magical happens when you put a smile on your face. People notice and causes them to have positive thoughts they wouldn’t have had otherwise. They are then friendly to us, having noticed our smile, which makes us happier. It’s a never-ending cycle of positivity and kindness.

Put a Smile on Your Face and the World Seems Friendlier

Life is simple when you’re happy, isn’t it? It would be so much better if we could always be happy. Well what if I told you that it is possible? It’s a change you can make within yourself. In times of uncertainty, we often forget one of the most important rules to a successful lifestyle: we must maintain an appearance of happiness and confidence, even in times of distress. With close relatives or people you trust, the circumstance is different. But to the outside world; perception is everything.

That smile will carry you through the rest of the day. By consciously being aware of the joy you project onto others, you are actually doing your part to make a positive change in society.

Being Comfortable in Your Own Skin

By setting aside some time every day to practice your smile, you are becoming comfortable with smiling. If you are comfortable smiling, then it will come easier to you when you need to smile. When you become more practiced, you can pick and choose the most important times to smile. Becoming a good smiler means knowing the best time to put a smile on your face.

Take Care of Your Smile

Also, for a big white smile, don’t forget to keep up on your oral hygiene. Flossing and brushing your teeth every day is very important! A smelly, yellow set of teeth doesn’t have the same impact as a nice clean set of pearly whites. Take care of yourself and you will be more confident in your smile. Don’t pass up on cleaning your teeth and have to hide them your whole life.

Smiling Precedes Laughing

Put a smile on your face and it will lead to laughter. Laughing doesn’t always need to be appropriate. I ready myself to laugh at a moment’s notice. It’s good for you.

You let out small laughs to prepare yourself for when someone says something really funny. Genuine laughs are hard to fake and come from deep within. But genuine or not, it will put you in a good mood. Whether or not you actually find something funny, try laughing more. You can start making things that aren’t funny turn funny; in the same way you can make an unpleasant situation a pleasant one with a smile.

Don’t be Embarrassed of Your Emotions

The people who take themselves too seriously will think you are strange for being so outwardly happy, but that is a minority. Most people think positively of someone who sees the humor to life and isn’t afraid showing their happiness. Never be afraid to wear your smile proudly. I’d rather be remembered as a fool who smiles all the time than not remembered.

Try This For a Good Time:

Next time you go out with friends, or even out alone to meet people, just laugh like a drunk maniac. Don’t be over the top, but don’t be afraid of being too liberal with your laughing. People will warm up to you faster, and your old friends will wonder when you became so much fun. You will appear like a fun person and increase the chances of others wanting to join you in your fun. People are all generally looking for a good time, so give off the body language that you are welcoming of all visitors.
