THE BENEFITS OF KISSING

Kissing.
Something we haven’t been able to do for quite a while…
AND, something we should get back to as soon as we are able.

Here are some of the benefits….
– It helps you lose weight:  A report found that a simple kiss burns 2-3 calories per minute, whereas a passionate kiss can burn 5-26 calories per minute. (and you can’t eat while you’re doing it!)

– It can boost your self-esteem:  Kissing causes the brain to release oxytocin and dopamine, which can lead to greater feelings of affection, bonding and intimacy. And kissing someone indicates certain feelings toward a person, which makes them feel good about themselves.

– Kissing can reduce cavities:  Two ways – kissing increases saliva flow, which washes away the acids in your mouth that can cause cavities. Plus, if a person is planning on kissing, they are more likely to take better care of their oral hygiene.

– It can dilate your blood vessels:  Kissing makes your heart rate increase. As a result, blood pressure decreases and blood vessels dilate. This not only makes you less-stressed, it can reduce pain from things such as menstrual cramps or headaches.

So go ahead… snog away.
It’s good for you! – Jamie
