Kissing improves ” happy hormones”

One article by Adrienne Santos- Longhurst (2018) explained that  Kissing triggers the brain to release a combination of chemicals that makes one feel good by igniting the pleasure centers of the brain.

The chemicals are oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin, which can make you feel euphoric and encourage feelings of affection and bonding. It also lowers your cortisol (stress hormone) levels.

Kissing reduces stress, anxiety

An old study by Floyd et al.(2009) agreed that when partners kissed, cortisol levels and stress reduces.  Therefore, Kissing and other affectionate communication, like hugging and saying “I love you,”  “You mean so much to me” and behaviors and supportive activities impacts the physiological processes related to stress management (Thompson, T. L. 2014). Also, (Esch & Stefano, 2005) found that when partners kissed,  oxytocin decreases anxiety and increases relaxation and wellness.

Kissing tones muscles, burns calories

Kissing often acts like a workout for your face and neck if you’re really into it! This may help firm up your facial muscles. Working out your facial muscles can also increase collagen production, which contributes to firmer, younger looking skin.

Joseph S. Alpert(2013), the article explained that when we use facial muscles also burn calories. Depending on the minute you kissed passionately, you can burn anywhere from 2 to 26 calories. This may not be the best workout regime if you’re trying to lose weight, but it sure beats sweating on the elliptical trainer!

Kissing reduces cholesterol

Floyd et al. (2009) study found that couples who frequently kissed improved their total serum cholesterol. This means as your cholesterol is reduced your risk of several diseases, including heart disease and stroke reduces.

In conclusion, Adrienne Santos-Longhurst(2018) explained that kissing, irrespective of whom you are kissing, can be a game changer for your emotional and physical well being. She notes: “Kissing makes both parties feel good about themselves and can help strengthen relationships of all kinds, so kiss and kiss often. It’s good for you”!
