It’s a weird question, I know, but really think about it. Were you smiling when you got to work? When you're in the car? Or during your morning routine with OptiMind?
It may seem like a small thing, but smiling can affect your life in more ways than you can imagine.
Smiling is one of the only universal forms of communication. Babies around the world, no matter where they’re born, start smiling at about five weeks.
Smiling can make you look younger, thinner, and generally more confident. Who doesn’t want that?
In fact, studies have even shown that people associate general competence with smiling. That means that when you smile more, people think you’re good at what you do.
Having a tough time at work? Smiling can even help with that. A study from the journalCognition and Emotion found that people who smiled performed better at critical thinking and attention tests.
All of these effects amplify each other in what is known as a positive feedback loop. The more you smile, the better people around you react, and the better you feel. That makes you smile more. It keeps building and building till you can’t help but grin.
Still don’t believe me?
This next week, smile whenever you speak. You’ll notice a huge change in the way people react to you.
The more you smile at the world around you, the more it smiles back, and the better you’ll feel.
The most basic benefit of smiling is a chemical one. Smiling is proven to release endorphins, the chemicals that make you feel good and reduce stress.
Smile more, stay in the (feedback) loop.
Cheers to your success,
