  1. Smiling makes you look attractive. There’s a reason why we smile in photographs, smiling instantly makes us look more attractive and happy. Smiling gives us confidence and approachable. Smiling automatically draws people to you, which bring us to our next point.

Smile and the world (or at very least the people you’re with) really does smile with you!
  3. Make a better impression. Heard the saying that we make our minds up about someone within 5 seconds? So it’s a good idea when meeting someone for the first time to give them your best smile. Successful people smile more often and if you’ll feeling nervous smiling will reduce your heart rate and anxiety.
  4. Smiling improves your immune system. Did you know that just a simple smile can boost your immune system, but how? Smiling helps the body produce more white blood cells to fight infections, so if want to fight that cold, just give it a great big smile!
  5. Live a long life. Jeanne Calment from France had the longest recorded lifespan in human history, living 122 years. Her advice on longevity: “Always keep your smile. That’s how I explain my long life.”

As if those reasons aren’t enough, you’ll appear younger, have an instant energy boost and have a rush of endorphins.
