When was the last time you kissed someone? If you cannot remember the last time, keep on reading. If your lips are still tingling from your last kiss, read on too. Whatever your circumstances, I am pretty sure that you will share a kiss with your partner as soon as possible.
Kissing Can Make You Wealthier & Help You Live Longer
Kissing can improve your self-esteem, and this can translate into increased productivity and eventually more money. Psychologist Dr. Arthur Szabo found in a survey that men who shared a kiss with their wife before leaving home earned 35% more than men who did not. The research also found that men who kissed their wives live up to 5 years longer than those who did not. So, kissing is not just a union of lips. It can help in elongating your life too!
Kissing Helps You Stay Healthier
The next time you kiss your partner passionately, you would have not only expressed your love for your loved one but also activated up to 24 facial muscles, and 112 postural muscles. All these muscles add up to a good workout for your face. Also, you get to burn some calories (up to 26 calories per minute of passionate kissing). What’s more? You have a glowing face and a less stressed body afterward.
Keep The Dentist Away
Kissing is to dentists; what apples are to doctors. Of course, you’ve heard the saying, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”. To keep your dentist away, you need to share a good long kiss with your partner. Kissing helps to increase the secretion of saliva, and this mechanism helps to wash away the plaque on your teeth that leads to cavities.
While kissing will not replace at an annual consultation with your dentist, it is beneficial for your teeth too!
Can Boost Your Heart
It turns out that kissing maybe even better than a glass of wine is for your heart. A good kiss can get your pumping, and widen your blood vessels. This widening of your blood vessels helps to lower your blood pressure and allows blood flow all over your body with ease. So, the more you kiss, the more you work out your heart and lower your blood pressure.
Kiss Headaches, Cramps & Stress Away
A good kiss can help with reducing your headaches or cramps. This phenomenon is linked to the dilation of blood vessels that happens when you kiss. It can also help to reduce your stress levels and improve your overall well being.
Now that you know all these, greet your partner with a kiss as soon as possible.
Let me know how it goes!
