The Reasons Why We Should Cuddle More

Independently of how much you enjoy cuddling, you will be interested in learning the overall benefits that cuddles provide. The reasons we offer below might make you reconsider the amount of cuddling you want to share with your partner.



1. Cuddling enhances bonding


Cuddling builds a stronger connection between two partners. The close physical contact with our partner creates an environment of familiarity and safety. It thus enhances a more robust communication between the couple and assists in overcoming fear and insecurity by creating comfort.


2. It eliminates anxiety


By activating the release of oxytocin in the brain, cuddling is a powerful way to fight stress and to reduce cortisol -the stress hormone. The emotional safety it provides is the ultimate stress killer as it makes us feel comforted.


3. It also works as a pain relief


In situations of pain, whether physical or emotional, we tend to hug each other to feel better. This is because, again, the oxytocin release works as a natural medicine against pain by promoting, at the same time, positive feelings and emotions.


4. It improves sleep


One of the wonderous side effects of oxytocin release through cuddling is its ability to make us relax and let ourselves go. As our stress levels are suppressed during cuddling, we are also able to fall asleep faster and get a better quality of sleep too!


5. It boosts our confidence


By lowering our stress levels, oxytocin empowers us in feeling safer with our surroundings. By promoting this hormonal release, physical contact then is crucially helpful in fighting social anxiety while helping us boost our confidence. A positive physical touch as simple as holding a loved one's hand can offer huge benefits in feeling more at ease in socially uncomfortable situations.


6. It lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease


Cuddling reduces the levels of blood pressure and helps prevent inflammation that is caused by stress. Frequent cuddling then is an excellent way to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, preventing us from heart disease.


7. It helps us grow closer


Oxytocin is known as the 'cuddling' or 'love' hormone due to its activity in our brain during various situations. Apart from cuddling, oxytocin is released when a mother gives natural birth to a child, during breastfeeding and after orgasm is reached during sexual intercourse. The benefits of oxytocin help us understand that overall health is very much dependent upon physical contact. That is, humans are social beings and cannot survive on their own; our very biology proves this, from birth to death, we need each other's touch to be and stay healthy.
