​Why Love Is Critical To Your Health


Wellness Tip: You may be puzzled to read an entry about love under Wellness. But your emotional life is every bit as important to your overall well-being as your heart or blood pressure. In fact, your emotional state may be the greatest influence upon your overall physical health. Much has been written about stress being a detriment to good health; but not much has been said about how positive feelings can enhance overall health. Animal lovers can attest to the relaxing phenomena afforded by their cherished pets. So does being in love, or freely loving another, be it a parent or a child, a friend or lover.

Specific benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, less doctor visits and quicker healing, reduced depression and greater overall health and longevity.

When you love, love completely, without expectations. Give of yourself, your time, your assistance and affection to all those you love, and your health will be glad for it.
