Smiling is important from a social perspective. A smile helps to create a positive first impression and makes you seem more attractive.
Author Dale Carnegie, who wrote ” How to win Friends and influence People”, devoted the first chapter to the smile, calling it “the big secret of dealing with people”.
Smiling is contagious – if you smile at someone it improves their mood, and usually makes them smile back in response. It’s very difficult not to like someone who makes you feel good enough to smile.
Researchers have also found that just the physical act of smiling can boost your mood. It releases endorphins (a natural pain-reliever) and serotonin, often referred to as a happy hormone. Even if it’s not a real smile, the muscle movement can fool your body into producing these substances, making you feel better!
