What’s the first thing people notice from across the room? Your smile. Our smiles are unique to us, they’re genuine expressions of emotion that draw other people in, when you’re smiling you’re exposing your feelings to the world. Your smile is more than just a function of your mouth so what does your smile say about you?
It’s All In the Eyes
We often try to hide behind our smiles when things aren’t going our way but your eyes never lie. During a true smile our cheekbones are raised and our eyes sparkle, if you want to gauge someone’s emotion look first to their eyes, then their mouth.
We’ve all heard the mantras about positive thinking; thinking positively leads to positive things, it really is true. Smiling conveys confidence and success, if you project yourself as happy and self-assured that is how people will see you, people who smile often are judged to be happier, more competent and more content. People who go through life smiling and looking on the bright side tend to cope better with challenges than people who are more reserved, so face the hard times with a smile and remember the good times are on their way.
A Self Fulfilling Prophecy
It might seem odd but the best way to boost your mood is to start smiling! Studies have shown that if we mirror emotions in our faces that we are not necessarily feeling at the time we push ourselves into experiencing that emotion, so turn that frown upside down and start smiling.
