The Benefits of Kissing

As people kiss, the amount of the hormone we create in the brain,
oxytocin, increases. Among many other functions,
oxytocin is thought to reduce stress and elevate feelings
of happiness.

Hope you remember to kiss the one you will improve
your weekend.  :)


  1. I love your photo! Yes, I find that a kiss can totally change a situation in a heart beat. Be it a kiss from your significant other when you are cleaning up a mess he has left for you, or when little ones who have just gotten into something come up and give you a kiss because they know they are in trouble. (Kisses that taste of milk and cookies are especially good) In any event kisses are special!


  2. Hi Cindy,
    You don't have to tell me twice. I'm off to kiss as many family members in the house as I can find!

  3. I will be sure too! Nothing beats a good kiss :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
