Oxytocin: Courage + Connection

Oxytocin: Courage + Connection

The Lover. When we connect with ourselves or other people, oxytocin floods our brains to dim anxiety and pain, inspire trust, build empathy and activate openness. This is the neurochemical responsible for helping you build your relationships. It helps you recognize the faces of your family and friends, promotes bonding, incites feelings of love and resilience.
You can boost your oxytocin levels naturally by hugging someone, activating your touch receptors with different textures, self-massage, stroking a pet or doing something that exhilarates you.
