Have you ever thought about what does love do for your health?
What if I told it can improve your health significantly:
It makes you feel better
Research shows that experiencing love releases feelings of euphoria, including brain chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin.
When dopamine is released, it makes one feel energetic, euphoric, and triggers a very goal oriented behavior.
Oxytocin, also known as “the love hormone,” affects how we think, and how we act. When released, it creates a sense of attachment, causing a bond to form between two people.
It can lower blood pressure
Why love is good for your health is that blood pressure responds to calmness and peace… If you’re in love, you’re calmer and more at peace, which could translate into lower blood pressure.
It can ease chronic pain
A healthy, passionate relationship may work as medication to relieve chronic pain, as intense feelings of love do in fact activate the same areas of the brain as painkillers.
It decreases chances of becoming depressed
If a person is in a healthy, supportive relationship, they are more likely to have higher self-esteem, which lowers both men’s and women’s chances of becoming depressed.
It prolongs life
Many studies show that people who are married, in committed relationships, or even have a group of close friends are more likely to live longer than those people who are single.
So, whether you are married, in a committed relationship, or just starting out on the wonderful journey of love, take a moment to thank your loved one. Not only are they on this journey with you, they are actually making you healthier.
Remember that if you want more love you need to give more of it first!
