Dogs Are Just The Best Friends Ever
1. It creates a stronger bond.
This is my favorite reason to cuddle – it helps create a stronger bond between you and your partner.
It creates an environment for comfort and communication and helps us escape whatever stresses you and your partner may experience.
2. It gets rid of stress.
When you cuddle, oxytocin is released which directly counters cortisol, the stress hormone. Cuddling can melt away stress and helps you feel better emotionally.
3. It relieves pain.
We hug and kiss our kids when they get hurt, but it’s not just some cultural phenomenon – it actually does help you feel better.
That magical hormone, oxytocin, helps us feel better all around.
4. It helps us sleep.
Cuddling helps us fall asleep because oxytocin counters cortisol, the stress hormone. This reduction in stress helps us calm down and our bodies drift off.
