In case we thought love is a bad thing, Ms Ackerman does her best to win us over to hearts and flowers. Tests have proven that we can withstand more pain if we’re touched by a loved one. A happy marriage relieves stress, lights up the reward centers of the brain, makes a body feel safe. When two people become a couple, they add a host of new experiences: new friends, family and interests. They also have the opportunity to grow in compassion, patience and wisdom.
So yay for love! And Happy Valentine’s Day!
