HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! If you’re fortunate enough to have a special someone in your life, you’ll be happy to know that KISSING HAS MANY HEALTH BENEFITS!
To wit: 1) It’s safer than shaking hands (less germs are spread this way); 2) It chills us out (kissing reduces cortisol levels, which is a stress hormone); 3) It puts us on cloud nine (kissing increases endorphin and serotonin levels, which provides a calmness); 4) It helps us live longer (kissing increases oxytocin levels, a hormone which lowers blood pressure).
So kiss away! 🙂
