When a person falls in love, the heightened “feel good” chemicals running through the brain appear to be the same as someone addicted to cocaine.
Falling in love can induce a calming effect on the body/mind and can raise levels of nerve growth factors for about a year, which helps to restore the nervous system and improves the lover’s memory.
Research suggests that happy couples who engage in positive conflict resolution have higher functioning immune systems than those couples who display the most negative behavior during the fights.
Looking to fight in a healthier way?
A proper hug where you heart touches the other person’s heart can aid you with the following health benefits:
Hugging leads to release of love hormones called Oxytocin, which fights feeling of depressions, loneliness and also fits of anger.
It promotes a sense of safety, trust and honesty in a person.
A long hug results in an increase in serotonin levels, which elevates your mood and makes your happy.
As they boost blood circulation to the softer tissues hugs can ease your pains, relax your muscles and can also relax your body .
Hugs are similar to meditation or even laughter. You’re mind stops thinking and you live in the moment. So you get out of your circular thinking patterns and unite with your heart, emotions and breathing simultaneously.
