Want to stand out in a crowd, be healthier, and make your guests feel welcome? … then SMILE!
• Makes Us Attractive
We are attracted to people who smile. We want to engage with a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away, but a smile draws them in, so smile when greeting your guest/s.
• Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. If you looked stressed, guests will pick up on this, so smile when you are talking to them, your stress should be reduced and you’ll be better able to look after your guest/s.
• Changes Our Mood
The next time you are feeling down, try smiling. There’s a good chance your mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood and others.
• Is Contagious
When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and a smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile at your guests, they will smile right back.
• Lowers Your Blood Pressure
When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Is there a difference?
• Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin
Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good; smiling is a natural high.
• Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger
The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Try smiling your way through the day; you’ll look younger and feel better.
• Makes You Appear Successful
Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Smile at your guests and they will feel successful too.
• Helps You Stay Positive
Try this, Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile, were you able to? When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that “Life is Good!”
