Top 10 tips to raise the romance this Valentine’s Day

from Dr. Lizette Lourens

Healthy hormones are critical to your overall wellness and your love life.

Oxytocin is known as the ‘love hormone’. While we can increase oxytocin with a specially-compounded nasal spray, here are my top 10 tips to naturally boost the love hormone.

Top 10 tips to naturally boost your love hormone – for men and women.

  1. Hug. Hug often. And hold for at least 15 seconds to stimulate the love hormone
  2. Kiss. Hugging helps….and kissing really counts!
  3. Massage. Whether at home or by a professional, the human touch during massage stimulates production of oxytocin
  4. Orgasm. Yes, orgasms improve oxytocin and oxytocin helps with orgasm. It’s a win/win!
  5. Hold hands. Whether it’s while walking with a loved one or sitting quietly at home, holding hands will help.
  6. Warm climate. There’s a reason those warm vacation getaways often turn into ‘sexy time’
  7. Physical exercise. Get moving! Regular exercise is helpful for so many aspects of personal wellness
  8. Slow dance. The physical contact and activity are natural stimulants for oxytocin
  9. Positive social contacts. Surround yourself with positive people
  10. Partner support. Feeling loved and supported by your partner is beneficial

And a bonus suggestion for those experiencing a solo Valentine’s Day –

Watch a romantic movie. Even if you’re watching it by yourself, you emotionally identify with the characters which stimulates the love hormone
