Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Private Home Health Care. Did you know that there are many health benefits of love?

  1. Increases positive emotions. Love releases feel-good chemicals in the brain such as oxytocin and dopamine. Love feels great – people love to love!
  2. Better immune system – Humans are wired to form close relationships and bonds, and when that doesn’t happen biological systems can get overwhelmed. 
  3. Less depression and substance abuse – social isolation is linked to depression and substance abuse, and having a loving relationship reduces that.
  4. Lower blood pressure – studies have found that happily married people have the best blood pressure.
  5. Less anxiety – Having strong social supports helps ease anxiety.
  6. Natural pain control – studies have found that ‘kissing a booboo’ actually helps, touch from loved ones reduces levels of perceived pain.
  7. Faster healing – A study at Ohio State gave participants blister wounds and found that the wounds of those happily married healed twice as fast!
  8. Better self care – Couples encourage each other to take care of themselves, eat better, go to the doctor and look after their own well being.
  9. Longer Life – People tend to live longer because they feel happier and connected.
  10. Happier Life – A study in the Journal of Family Psychology found that happiness depends more on the quality of family relationships and not on the level of income.
