International kiss day

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!
