It feels like we blinked and it was already December, but here we are with 2020 right around the corner. As we near the end of this year, we’ve been reflecting on what 2019 meant for our team and what the new year might have in store for us!
We had an exciting year here at Cashmere Family Dentistry, with many positive changes and lots of growth for our practice. It’s been a privilege for us to continue providing high-quality dental care to patients all across Cashmere and Wenatchee. We’ve loved getting to know all our new patients, and enjoyed working with all of our existing ones, too!
Our wonderful team has celebrated birthdays and milestones, and we’re especially proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with our patients and each other in 2019. We also took advantage of various training opportunities in order to stay up-to-date on the latest in dental research and technology, giving us the knowledge we need to provide the best possible care to our patients.
We had fun connecting with our audience on social media in new ways, and plan to do more of the same next year. We’re hoping to add more creative in-office activities to our schedule as well, so remember to check in with us regularly throughout 2020 to catch any big announcements!
The ending of one year is the perfect opportunity to set some exciting goals for the new one ahead, and that’s why we’re encouraging all our patients to share more smiles in 2020. Take a look at just a few of the reasons you should consider your grin as a gift that keeps on giving as we head into a brand new year!
Smiling is contagious
Numerous studies have shown that people have a difficult time maintaining a frown if someone smiles at them. Many can’t help but smile in return! Start a smile revolution and make it a habit now to smile more often at your family, friends, and even strangers throughout the upcoming year.
Smiles are stress relievers
When we smile, our bodies release endorphins that reduce stress and enhance our mood. This can take your from frustrated to feeling good in no time! If 2020 gets you down, try smiling even if you aren’t feeling like it and notice how quickly it can turn things around.
Smiling takes less effort than a frown
Did you know that it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile? That means you actually have to put extra effort into maintaining a frown! Turn your frown upside down in 2020 and give your face a break by smiling more often.
Smiling boosts your immune system
Some scientific studies have shown that smiling relaxes your body, helping to improve your immune system and contribute to overall good health. Nobody wants to use all their sick days, so smile more in the upcoming year and help your body fight off illness.
Smiling can increase your chances of promotion
It’s true! People who smile at work more often appear more social and confident than those who do not. This can lead to better job opportunities, including promotions. If you’re a professional aiming for the next rung on the ladder, start smiling more in the new year. You never know who’s watching!
Your smile is your most memorable feature
More people will remember your smile than any other feature. In fact, smiles are our most recognizable facial expression. A smile can even be recognized from up to 300 feet away! Make your mark while you’re out and about by flashing a big grin more often.
Add a few extra years to your life by smiling more
Remember what we said about how smiling boosts your immune system? One big benefit of that is a longer lifespan! Scientists believe that people who smile often tend to live about seven years longer on average than those who do not. Give yourself more time to do the things you love by smiling more every day in 2020!
