Smiling is an important social skill. A bright smile makes other people feel better. People who smile are considered more competent, more trustworthy and more friendly than people who do not smile often. If smiling is a challenge for you, try the following tips.
Some people have gotten out of the practice of smiling, or they may feel sad as if they had no reason for smiling. You can get back into the habit of smiling by practicing. Try smiling at your reflection as you do your daily grooming. Make it a point to smile at family members and friends. After you practice for a while, smiling will come naturally to you.
Maintain Your Health
It’s hard to smile when you don’t feel well, so do everything you can to protect your health. Drink plenty of water. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Try to sleep at least eight hours per night. Exercise regularly. And of course, don’t forget to brush and floss your teeth twice a day. Following these suggestions will improve your overall health, and when you’re feeling at your best, smiling is easy.
Have Your Teeth Straightened
Many people feel too embarrassed to smile because they have crooked teeth. If this is a problem for you, schedule a consultation with an orthodontist. He or she can discuss your options, like using braces or Invisalign to straighten your teeth. You will be relieved to know that braces today are not like the train tracks from your childhood. Modern braces match the color of your enamel so closely that most people can’t even tell that you are wearing braces.
