FIVE POSITIVE results of being in love

FIVE POSITIVE results of being in love

NordenBladet – We all know that falling in love and loving makes us feel great, but did you know that there is real science behind it? Falling in love floods our nervous system with hormones that create a feeling of well-being, so it’s no wonder that this feeling is so tempting. Many scientific studies confirm that falling in love is good for both physical and mental health. A happy relationship supports a long and happy life!

Here are five positive reasons why falling in love is good for your health:

1. Reduced stress level
Researchers at Chapel Hill University in North Carolina found that hugging and holding hands releases oxytocin in the body, which lowers stress hormone levels, increases pain tolerance, improves mood and lowers blood pressure. Many other studies have also shown that love and falling in love reduce stress levels. And since stress is considered to be the leading cause of a very large number of illnesses, it is no wonder that people in a loving relationship live longer because their stress levels are lower.

Psychiatrist Joseph Hulett has said: “Humans are social beings with a biological need to find a relationship. If they can’t find it, they will suffer from stress.” Julianne Holt-Lunstad, a professor at Brigham Young University, agrees with the above, saying that our relationships help us cope with stress, and if we have someone to turn to for emotional support and advice, it is a good buffer against the negative effects of stress.

Lower stress levels also give us healthier skin and a slimmer waist. Elevated stress levels are associated with higher levels of cortisol in the body. Due to cortisol, adipose tissue tends to deposit primarily at the waist and skin problems are more likely to occur.

2. Stronger immune system
Happy couples who deal with misunderstandings in a positive way also have a better functioning immune system than those who do not. Researchers who have watched couples behave in a conflict situation have found that those who argued in an optimistic and loving way had a stronger immune system than those who argued in a negative way about each other during the dispute.

3. Pain relief
Studies have shown that people who experienced an electric shock described lower levels of pain when they were able to hold a loved one at the same time. Female subjects who were happily married experienced less pain when they were able to hold the husband. The help of friends is important, but the one we love is even better able to reduce our perception of pain.

4. Better physical form
Couples who train together achieve better results than those who train alone. Nutritionist and trainer Jay Cardiello has said: “Almost half of the people who train alone interrupt their program after the first year, but two-thirds of those who train with a loved one continue.” It has also been found that those who train with a partner do so 12–15% more efficiently. When there is a loved one next to you who inspires you for a common goal, it really pays off.

5. Better overall well-being
At Rutgers University, people were found to have high levels of dopamine in their brains when they looked at a picture of a loved one. Dopamine is associated with increased energy, a positive outlook on life and general well-being.
