Love Is What We Need…

Greetings & Happy September Beautiful People!!!  I intend all enjoyed & absorbed this Beautiful Blur-Of-A-Summer!!!

As I’ve been experiencing personally and thru people watching throughout the City lately, verbalizing & expressing admiration & respect can definitely use some tweaking.  I’ve noticed an extreme lack of eye, verbal & physical contact especially among social interacting.  Heads are bent in the prayer position, unfortunately some sort of electronic device was the focal point… Compliments, genuine concern or telling someone “I’ve been thinking about you” will not diminish ones’ self-worth or be considered a sign of weakness.  By doing so, it is actually raising the vibration & sending good energy that, in turn, reciprocates back to you (yes, even if they don’t say it back).  Many people were not taught to “Spread Love” verbally, however, that’s ok one can slowly make small gestures or alternatives toward this.  There are other ways to express admiration, like, love or respect to others.  Here are some facts I found to be powerful and informative from, and, respectively:

Did You know hugs and affection can dramatically reduce blood pressure and improve the health of Your heart? Hugging someone also releases oxytocin (oxy-tow-sin), which is also known as the feel-good hormone . . .  

A brief hug and 10 minutes of handholding with a romantic partner (friends, or family) greatly reduce the harmful physical effects of stress, according to a study reported by the American Psychosomatic Society. Hugging has also been linked to improved memory due to the lowered stress levels. Hugging and showing Love is more than just emotionally healthy for You, it can also scientifically improve the health of Your body.

Did you know there is a National Hug Day?  It is on January 21st and was intended to encourage everyone to hug family and friends more often. Hugging someone You care about can also ease anxiety -- but hugging a stranger can have the opposite effect so hug and especially kiss with caution & use discretion.  “Everythang ain’t for Everybody!!!”

Experts believe it all comes back to the hormone oxytocin. A simple embrace seems to increase levels of the "Love hormone," which has been linked to social bonding.

. . . In one study, the stress-reducing effects of a brief hug in the morning carried throughout a tough work day, USA Today reported.

The best news of all is that hugging isn't the only way getting closer than close to boost Your health. A few others also have big benefits:


Call it an extended hug -- cuddling also releases stress-easing oxytocin, which can reduce blood pressure and creates a bond. But You may not have guessed that a little cuddle time can help You and Your partner communicate better. "Non-verbal communication can be a very powerful way to say to Your partner, 'I get You,'" marriage and family therapist David Klow told Shape magazine. "Cuddling is a way of saying, 'I know how You feel.'  It allows us to feel known by our partner in ways that words can't convey."


Speaking of communication -- even just spending time together without touching can put You at ease and lower blood pressure, compared to spending time with someone less significant, according to the BBC. Not to mention that making the effort to communicate openly can only strengthen Your relationship.


Of course, kissing has also been shown to affect oxytocin and cortisol levels (cortisol is a hormone that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation…It is released in response to stress and the result of a low level of blood glucose).  Just like hugging and cuddling, Yes, Kissing can also reduce stress . . . again, especially non-adults, this is my disclaimer, I’m not promoting it, just giving you the facts youngins…everyone should kiss with caution & use discretion. 

There is more information as well, but remember to use good judgment.  Some may feel it is a violation of personal space, especially when caught off guard (those who may not be accustomed to expressing emotions in that manner), so ask for permission. 

Remember, Kindness and Compassion are contagious and have many benefits for Good Health and for Expanding The Heart…
