What Does Your Smile Say About You?

By Joanne Barker

Reviewed by Alfred D. Wyatt Jr., DMD

Want to succeed in business, fill up your social calendar, and get more romance into your life? One secret may be in your smile.Your smile — simple, straightforward, and most important, sincere — can attract more than admiring looks. A smiling face tells people that you’re an outgoing and intelligent person worth getting to know.”When someone has a big smile, it shows they’re willing to open up and expose a part of themselves,” says Pamela McClain, DDS, a past president of the American Academy of Periodontology. Over the long term, smiling can benefit your health, perception at work, social life, and romantic status.  With that much at stake, it’s worthwhile to discover what your smile is saying about you — and how to interpret the smiles flashed your way.

Smiling Eyes Aren’t Just for the Irish

Many Americans look at the mouth to judge a person’s mood, but people smile for all sorts of reasons: anger, fear, embarrassment, confusion, to deceive. It’s really your eyes that give you away.

The muscles around the eyes can’t be forced to look happy. When people smile for real, their cheeks rise and the skin around their eyes bunches up. In fact, in certain countries where suppressing emotion is a cultural norm, people look more at each other’s eyes to gauge emotion.

A Smile Makes You Look Successful

“A smile conveys confidence and professionalism,” says Lily T. Garcia, DDS, a past president of the American College of Prosthodontists. People who project a positive outlook are generally more open and flexible. They tend to cope better with challenges than people who are withdrawn and unsmiling.

A study that followed a group of women for 30 years shows the lifetime benefits of smiling. The women who displayed genuinely happy smiles in their college yearbook photos went on to have happier marriages and greater well-being.

In the same study, a group of strangers looked at the college photos and reported their assumptions about the women’s personalities. The women who smiled were judged to be more positive and competent than those who didn’t.

Turn That Frown Upside Down

Want to be happy? Just smile. Believe it or not, forcing yourself to smile can actually make you happier.

Paul Ekman, PhD, a psychologist who is an expert in facial expressions, taught himself to arrange the muscles in his face to make certain expressions. To his surprise, he found himself feeling the emotions that he was mimicking. When he raised his cheeks, parted his lips, and turned the corners of his mouth up, he felt happier.

Ekman and his research partner went on to do a study of college students to see if they, too, would feel happier by making themselves smile. The researchers measured the students’ brain activity while the students followed instructions to smile using the muscles in their cheeks and around their mouths.

Whether the students smiled spontaneously or on purpose, the activity in their brains was virtually the same. They felt happy.

Smile Anxiety

Chipped or missing teeth, fillings, or discolored teeth are unveiled when your lips part to smile — so some people simply avoid it.

If you find yourself wanting to cover up your smile, you could be holding yourself back in more ways than you realize. “Life is much more challenging for people who are so self-conscious about their teeth they don’t want to smile,” McClain says. Make a date with your dentist to talk about your concerns and potential corrections. Many dental problems can be fixed.

One of McClain’s patients with excess gum tissue was ashamed of her short-looking teeth. “We did a procedure called crown lengthening, and it was amazing what a difference it made,” McClain says. “She was so much more self-confident.”

 8 Foods To Help You Lose Weight Naturally

 By Katrina Love Senn
August 13, 2014 5:34 AM EDT

Have you ever wished that there was a magic pill for natural weight loss? If you have, I can totally relate, as I spent many years looking for one myself!

I called off the search just days before my 20th birthday, when I suffered a complete body breakdown. My adrenals were totally exhausted and I was sleeping up to 20 hours a day.

At that point in my life, I chose to turn my attention away from my perceived body issues and to focus entirely on creating health by eating simple foods that could help me to heal my body naturally.

The irony is that by focusing on simple foods rich in nutrients, not only was I able to heal my body completely, but I also lost over 60 pounds in the process. By continuing to apply these very same principles, I have kept this weight off for over 15 years.

Below are eight simple foods that can help you to lose weight naturally and keep it off for good as well.

1. Kale

This is one the most outstanding greens for very good reason. Not only does it offer your body quality nutrients and a lot of fiber, but it’s so versatile.

Start your day off right with a green smoothie (made from fresh kale and other nutrient-dense fresh greens) or make a healthy kale salad for lunch!

One of my favorite ways to enjoy kale is to wash and dry a big plate of kale (with a dash of sea salt and lemon juice) and then grill it to make crispy kale chips.

2. Blueberries

When we talk about simple foods, no list is complete without blueberries. Though all berries are good for you, blueberries stand out, due to their high concentration of antioxidants. They make for the perfect addition to almost any meal — salads, smoothies, or shakes.

3. Lemons

Lemons can support natural detoxification and reduce sugar cravings, enabling your body to heal itself naturally.

Try adding lemon juice to a glass of water first thing in the morning or squeezing fresh lemon juice over your salads for a natural, zesty dressing. You will love what lemons and other citrus fruits can do for you.

4. Eggs

Eggs are an excellent source of protein and therefore can play a major role in supporting natural weight loss. They’re a great form of slow release energy to keep you going throughout the day. I love to add hard boiled eggs to a fresh green salad with any other chopped up vegetables that I have in the refrigerator. They also make healthy travel snacks.

5. Broccoli

Rich in fiber, loaded with antioxidants, and overall an amazing vegetable, broccoli is a great choice to include in your diet. You can use broccoli in so many different dishes or just serve it on it’s own, steamed with a dash of sea salt and fresh lemon juice.

6. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is loaded with fiber and is a great source of complex carbohydrates to keep you feeling fuller for longer. A bowl of cooked oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon is a great way to start your day. If you are gluten-sensitive, make sure to buy gluten-free oatmeal only.

7. Wild Salmon

Salmon is another source of good fat, and is also an excellent choice for protein. It’s a very versatile food that can be enjoyed by itself as a snack or served with fresh salad and vegetables. The good fats in wild salmon keeps your brain healthy and will give you a natural energy boost and support weight loss.

8. Avocados

Avocados are the perfect example of a food high in good fats, and are something that you can eat in abundance, since they keep you feeling nourished and satisfied.

Eating a diet that is high in fat (unlike one that is high in sugar) allows your body to sense when you have eaten enough food and to let you know when you are full. Listening to and connecting to your body in this intuitive way will allow you to best know what to eat and when.

Beat PMS! 5 Ways To Get Rid Of Bloating, Mood Swings & Food   Cravings

By Eileen Fedyna
August 5, 2014 4:27 AM EDT

As women, three out of every four weeks of the month, we’re our regular selves and then … that monthly time creeps up on us again. It can be extremely difficult to maintain self-control with not only eating habits, but also with our emotions. What if there were natural remedies (that we likely already have easy access to) that could help?

Luckily, there are! Here are a few natural ways to curb these unfortunate side affects while maintaining a healthful-positive mood. Stay motivated and on track with these five tips and watch as the “PMS monster” dissipates before your very eyes!

1. Vitamin C

Ah, vitamin C! So simple and loved, but not commonly associate with curbing sugary, fatty cravings due to PMS. This fabulous flavonoid is a simple trick you can use to avoid overeating during your monthly cycle. Simply purchase a vegan vitamin C supplement made without magnesium stearate. Take up to 1,000 milligrams throughout the day or in between meals to stay balanced and cut cravings.

2. Raw cocoa

It’s no surprise that our cravings lead us to chocolate bars in the days before our menses. In the days before our period, our bodies crave magnesium because our hormone levels fluctuate dramatically! When our bodies create more estrogen, causing cravings and increased breast tenderness, our levels of magnesium drop significantly. This is where the raw cocoa comes in!

Cocoa is loaded with magnesium and can positively impact our mental and emotional states, helping to relieve common PMS symptoms. During this time, I love eating raw cocoa nibs with goji berries for a sweet treat, or I mix two scoops of raw cocoa powder with chia, protein and hemp milk for a yummy pudding treat!

3. Omega-3 fatty acids

Say bye-bye to crazy! Omega-3 fatty acids rock when it comes to balancing your mood during PMS. You can take fish oil capsules to get a strong dose of omega-3. Not only will it help with brain chemistry for improved mental clarity but fish oil is used by naturopaths worldwide for dealing with depression and “mood-swing” disorders.

What’s more this will help you with maintaining a healthy weight and also provides the body with anti-inflammatory protection (ciao, cramps!). When I begin to feel emotional leading up to my cycle, I take two to three gel capsules and feel the effects quite quickly. Be sure to purchase a high quality, pharmaceutical-grade omega-3 supplement and watch your mood swings become a thing of the past!

4. Avocado

Avocados are incredible! The next time you are about to impulsively pig out at night try this little trick. Within the days leading up to your period, be sure to keep some organic, creamy avocados close by. Slice them in half and enjoy with a sprinkle of sea salt. Follow with a few sips of water and then wait about 15 minutes. Still starving? I didn’t think so!

The healthy fats in an avocado are able to fill us up, leaving less room for the other junk we might be craving.

5. High-intensity movement

My ex-boyfriend, a former athlete, swore by quick, high-intensity movements for allover mood improvement and well-being. I must admit, I am not one for monotonous workouts so when I realized I could improve my mood in just 15 minutes, I was down to try it out!

Moves like jumping jacks, hill sprints and lifting heavy weights in short repetitions definitely do the trick. Doing this will not only improve your mood significantly by elevating endorphins, but it will also help to eliminate cramps, bloating and food cravings. Blast your favorite music and get moving! In addition, you may even want to consider purchasing a small trampoline. Jumping drains the excess fluids from the body by stimulating the lymphatic system: bloating-be-gone!

I know that the above five tips are very effective and have helped many others get through horrible PMS symptoms. Above all else, please remember to stay positive! The mind has the power to alter our emotional state at the drop of a dime!

FABULOUS FRIDAY Recipe

Pasta Salad With Basil & Kale

 

 Serves 6 or more

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. mini penne pasta (or other small pasta shape); gluten-free or regular
  • 1 cup raw cashews, filled to just over the top with water
  • 1 cup kale broken into small pieces (core removed)
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup frozen baby peas, defrost
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella, medium diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, medium diced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and quarters
  • 1/4 cup fresh scallions, slivered
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, slivered
  • 1 medium garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Cook pasta according to package directions but slightly under-cook by reducing the cooking time by about a minute. This will ensure that the pasta will be al dente (firm, but still cooked). Drain and add to a large bowl.

In the meantime, add the cashews and water to a mixer or food processor and purée until creamy and smooth. Add more water a bit at a time if too thick. Season with salt and pepper.

Stir in enough of the cashew cream to moisten all of the pasta.

Place a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add oil and heat and then add the garlic and cook for about 15 seconds or just until it begins to color.

Add broccoli, kale and peas and cook just until the kale begin to slightly wilt (about a minute). Season, stir and remove from the heat and add the contents of the pan to the pasta in the bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients, stir and check the seasoning. Refrigerate to chill.

Note: If a bit too dry, add a bit more of the cashew cream or drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil (or both).

10 Things To Get Rid Of If You Want To Be Happy

What would you throw away right now if you were given a magical trashcan where you could get ride of all the stuff that’s causing you stress?During times of stress and heaviness, what we need is to let go of the things that are causing the overwhelming feeling of, “it’s too much.”

It’s not about taking on more — it’s about being willing to do less.

So if you could toss out 10 things in your life right now, what would they be?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and have been for a long time, here are 10 ways to change your thinking to lighten the stressful load you’ve been carrying and finally give yourself a break:

1. Get rid of the need to please.

2. Stop feeling like you need to explain yourself.

3. Don’t feel the need to reply immediately to everything (hello, to emails taking over your life!).

4. Let yourself be unavailable when you need to be. It’s OK to say “no” to that event or party.

5. Cast away the thought that you need X to be successful. Why is it we often feel that ONE thing has the power to make or break us? It’s simply not true. There’s always another opportunity.

6. Get rid of the desire to show yourself off. You are enough as you are. There are people that will see you for who you are without having to prove anything.

7. Stop trying to be accepted by everyone. Not everyone is going to accept you and that’s OK. Our job is to accept that.

8. Remember that you don’t need to know every detail. There’s a mystery to the way life works. You might as well embrace it.

9. Toss out the need to be “good” or “perfect.” It’s OK to mess up. It’s OK for someone to see you become a little crazy. It happens to all of us.

10. Stop holding onto the stress of feeling you are responsible to hold up everyone around you. Trust that there is a greater force helping them. Helping and supporting others is wonderful. But the moment it causes stress is a signal to let go. Trust that they will be supported just as you are supported by a greater life-force.

Tossing out the heaviness and the stress that weighs us down is the easiest way to feel light and free again. In lightness and freedom comes a sense of openness, expansiveness, and newfound energy.

And it is with this awakened energy that we can actually do better work and end up helping more people.

When we feel good, we can create a greater impact. So take some time today and make a list of five to 10 things that YOU want to let go of.

Write them down and start tossing them out one at a time. Then, in the comments below, share with us what you plan to let go of!

Breathe into the lightness, freedom, and awakened energy that you’ll receive when you clear out the clutter in your life. You deserve it.

FABULOUS FRIDAY Recipe

Pineapple-Watermelon Smoothie

Summertime means long days in the sun, sweat trickling down your spine as you heat up, and cold drinks and dips in the water to cool you back down. It also means tons of fresh, juicy produce to replenish and rehydrate you after those long, not-so-lazy days of summer. And nothing says summer like a big juicy watermelon.

Watermelon, pineapple, and coconut water are all superior hydrators, and the coconut water contains electrolytes to rebalance your system. Add these three together and you have the perfect drink for all your summer needs!

A Pineapple-Watermelon Smoothie That’s Perfect For Summer

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 to 1 cup coconut water (as needed to thin out)

Directions

Add all ingredients to your high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Sip, smile, and repeat all summer long.

So much for 'safe place'. (And when I run across it months later I think why did I think this was such a safe place!)
