As the day of love approaches, I thought a quick blurb on the health benefits of love might be fitting.
Studies have shown that a loving relationship leads to:
- Better Brain Health– married couples show lower cognitive decline with age.
- A Stronger Immune System– married people consult doctors less frequently, have shorter hospital stays, are less likely to be admitted to a nursing home, and have higher resistance to colds and flu.
- Greater Longevity– spouses look out for each other’s health.
- Healthier Kids – having a loving role model makes for kids who achieve a higher education and are at less risk of smoking and substance abuse.
