Just some of the (many) benefits of smiling!

Stay Positive with a Smile
We all know the many benefits of looking after your health. We’re bombarded by new diets and exercise regimes on a daily basis. But it’s important to take the whole picture into account when thinking about your well-being. This includes your outlook on life, and nothing expresses this more effectively than a smile.
The recent article on 'Just some of the (many) benefits of smiling' by Bupa Dental Insurance explores this age-old feel good factor and we were delighted to contribute our two cents on the importance of flashing your pearly whites as often as possible!
The Sweetness of a Smile
 
Here at Raw Trader, we aim to combine health and happiness, by offering desserts and sweet treats that are also good for you. We understand that for an all-round sense of well-being, you have to look after your mind as well as your body. This is why it brings us so much happiness to see the smiles on the faces of our customers!
Raw Trader is a specialty cafe offering organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free desserts and sweet treats. Many of our products are also paleo and low FODMAP friendly. In addition to our sweet treats, we offer healthy breakfast options, fresh whole fruit and vegetable smoothies, organic coffee, herbal teas and other specialty hot beverages. Many of our customers delight in our offerings that cater for a variety of allergies and intolerance. Being able to enjoy delectable alternatives to foods that have long been off the menu is a constant source of delight for many.

 

 

The benefits of having a good smile means that you project confidence, fun and a positive outlook on life. People are automatically more responsive to you if you smile. It makes you seem like a warm and approachable person, who has confidence and a positive outlook on life. It also conveys a very obvious sense of fun! This can be a welcome relief in lives that are so often much too serious and stressed.
Smiling can make you an attractive person to be around. This in turn could boost your self-esteem and increase your health and well-being, so it’s self-perpetuating. 
Once you start smiling, you may not be able to stop!
