Happy International Kissing Day! In honour of International Kiss Day, Monday, July 6 2015, we thought we would post some of the health benefits from kissing.
- Reduces Blood Pressure
- Relieves cramps and headaches
- Fights cavities
- Releases happy hormones (natural feel-good chemicals like dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin)
- Burns calories
- Boosts self esteem
- Tones facial muscles
- Checks out your partner’s compatibility
Additional studies have shown that kissing may also lowers stress levels and boost the immune system.
So there you have it! I’m not a fan of grabbing a stranger to kiss, but if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/partner then what are you waiting for?
Kiss away, now and every day!
