Oxytocin: My favorite high

What is oxytocin and how to get more?

Psychology Today describes how Oxytocin modulates the human “tend and defend” response. Regarding the caring side of humans it helps to build and maintain social bonds, while the defensive side is associated with prejudice toward unfamiliar groups.

Oxytocin plays a huge role in bonding with others in our life. Recommended dosage of hugs: 8 hugs at about 20 seconds long. Some may even claim that that is too much time to dedicate in a day towards hugging.

Soak in a hot tub and enjoy quality time with others. Be sure to listen with your eyes. And love every moment spent with the ones you love.
