When you’re in a good mood, it shows. Feeling good can make a person more productive and social. So, when you’re down in the dumps, you may seem withdrawn. Don’t let a funk ruin your day. Improving your mood doesn’t take long and is worth your time. Dr. James Stewart, your Livonia dentist, offers quick ways to improve your mood.
Fast Ways to Feel Better
To turn your mood around fast, get moving. Stretching or going for a short, brisk walk can make you happier. Endorphins that elevate your mood are released by movement. The more often and more vigorous your actions, the higher your endorphin levels, making for a brighter outlook. Getting out of your seat also works the place where most people are most tense: your hips. Boosting your serotonin levels can lift your spirits too. Serotonin, a hormone associated with feeling good, can be generated by vitamin D. A convenient, free source of it comes directly from sunshine. Why not take a walk outside on your next break? It might change the rest of your day.
A More Confident Smile
For some of us, feeling good about ourselves may take a little longer. Not being able to show off your smile because of stained or crooked teeth can actually worsen your mood. Since smiling, even if it’s forced, makes us happier, we should feel confident in flashing our teeth whenever we feel like it. Cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile and your confidence. If your teeth are stained or crooked, porcelain veneers may improve your smile and mood. Showing your natural teeth in a new way is an option as well. Teeth whitening or Invisalign braces can brighten or realign your smile without prosthetics. Talk to your dentist about ways to get you smiling again.
