In the era of slow living and minimalism, why not take advantage of Valentine’s Day to rediscover love in its simplest form? Without exuberance, love is revealed in conversations, a look, a special connection. At the root of this strong feeling lies the love hormone.
It’s called oxytocin. It fosters the development of love, trust and bonds and is essential for fulfillment, proper development and feelings of attachment. Regularly stimulated by displays of affection and kind words, it also contributes to happiness.
Oxytocin supports closeness by providing a reassuring feeling of calmness and trust. It plays a major role in social and romantic development by influencing emotions, the feeling of closeness between partners and relationship stability.
This hormone is also responsible for supporting partners in forging a strong couple who will be able to care for their offspring and a united family unit. At birth, oxytocin levels peak, generating a feeling of euphoria in new parents and fostering the development of bonds between the parents and newborn.
Oxytocin also plays a role in the development and maintenance of friendships. Its levels increase in the body when you feel trust, exchange looks or are having an intimate conversation. It’s not uncommon for friends to get together and have enriching discussions in an atmosphere of closeness and intimacy. Such simple, happy moments are stimulated by oxytocin.
For a Valentine’s Day without exuberance that draws from the sources of Love with simplicity and wisdom, find or rediscover the extraordinary in the most natural thing: the chemical reaction caused by an increase in oxytocin.
