The first impression


Even though it is hard to admit, we do judge books by their cover. We create an image of someone’s character the first few seconds when we get to see them. That is why we do our best to make a well-perceived first impression, usually in order to achieve our own goals.

Are words that important?

     Since a long time ago, people have been doing research of human’s understating of a message. The results may be varied yet one thing is certain: the way we speak matters more than what do we actually say. Sometimes even, we may not know anything at all about the subject, but if we use our body language correctly, we may fool everyone around that we are experts in the matter. According to Albert Mehrabian, a former professor of psychology at the university in California, we perceive messages from another person mainly through their body language (55{aa875454b07373d8dedfd262f4efbff42a7f7465f4f4c79a368439b547441e46}), facial expressions (38{aa875454b07373d8dedfd262f4efbff42a7f7465f4f4c79a368439b547441e46}) and then through their words (7{aa875454b07373d8dedfd262f4efbff42a7f7465f4f4c79a368439b547441e46}). Even though his research may be a little outdated, it still proves something. We perceive with our eyes first, then create an opinion based on what we see.

     The truth is bitter, yet on the other hand, there is a lot that we can do. First of all, we can learn how to use our image. In a stressful situation we can improvise and adapt. Just smile our way through. It sounds unbelievable, but a simple smile can brighten up any difficulty with other people. Most importantly, it makes your interlocutor think that you are confident, and then you actually do feel confident. Take some mind-blowing lessons of body gestures, dress well, and the last but not least, take care of your teeth.

How to have a perfect smile?

     There are many solutions to having strong and nice teeth, one of them is a proper diet that includes high amount of calcium. It is the main building block of bones, therefore, a proper amount of this element means having strong teeth. Fortunately, it can be easily delivered to your organism. You can find it in dairy products like milk or cheese and in all kinds of fish. Another thing with diet is what you cannot have in it. Sugar. Simple, small and strongly dangerous. Consumed in great amounts, sugar kills the perfect smile. The same thing goes with cigarettes alongside with damaging your health.

Apart from acting from the inside, you can maintain healthy teeth with, a little obvious but very important, brushing your teeth regularly. The same goes with visiting a dentist. No matter how terrifying it is.

Too much?

     It is hard to keep a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes, even though you do eat fit, your teeth still suffer. Then, the only thing to do is trust your dentist. There are more and more technologies developed in stomatology, that you actually may not feel anything during any dental procedures.

     Some companies, research groups and clinics even offer not only professional dental care but also encourage you with touristic adventures (tannlege polen). What is better than getting a perfect smile and have a little sightseeing at the same time?
