LOVE is many things… a feeling, a behavior, etc. and when we want to feel more love you can consciously do it by the many ways to actively release the hormone oxytocin into your brain. Known as the “bonding” chemical in the brain, oxytocin is really good for you. It can be generated lots of ways and the more you have the better you will feel. Not surprisingly, it plays a big role in producing orgasms.
Keeping your weight down is another benefit of high oxytocin levels.
Researchers have observed that oxytocin and oxytocin receptor-deficient mice become obese later in life — and with normal food intake. Scientists who have given oxytocin-deficient obese mice oxytocin infusions, saw their weight return back to normal levels. The mice also showed a reduced glucose intolerance and insulin resistance. This clearly suggests an alternative option for those struggling to keep the weight off.
One of the things that depletes our levels of oxytocin is stress (and who doesn’t have an overload of that?) so today I want to share with you a list of easy and fun ways to “rebuild your oxytocin.”
It’s well known that a simple hug, gazing into the eyes of someone and petting your dog or cat will also boost your oxytocin level. According to master love expert, John Gray (marsvenus.com), here are several other oxytocin producers:
- getting your hair done
- manicures and pedicures
- shopping (online and at the mall!)
Here are some of my favorite oxytocin-boosting things to do:
- going to live, outdoors concerts and soaking on the music through every sense.
- slowly eating and savoring my favorite dessert.
- laughing, which is why I just love going to stupid, funny movies.
- A nice long bubble bath with candles.
Remember what you put your attention on grows. Add more pleasure and oxytocin to your brain and your life to add more love on every level.
