Falling in love is easy, staying in love is hard.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 25, 2011
Getting a good smooch under the mistletoe can be part of a fun holiday tradition, but why not get a jump start and warm up before hand? Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil suggests kicking things off this season by taking just 30 seconds for a kiss each day with your partner. "This releases oxytocin, known as the cuddle hormone, and makes you feel bonded and safe," Dr. Bonnie explains.
Additionally, a 20 second hug can do wonders as well. "It can help give you more energy and erase that "burned out" feeling you sometimes get from too much shopping, parties, festivities and so forth," says Dr. Bonnie.
These are easy, practical and non time-consuming ways to connect with your significant other, and should be done on a daily basis - but what better time to start than during the holidays when love is in their air ... and when we are also more susceptible to stress?! Practice a mistletoe kiss beforehand and couples will feel more energized and less stressed whether dealing with the holidays or not!
