Man kissing a woman

As we gain a better idea of the biology and chemistry of love, scientists have been able to determine that there are, in fact, noticeable health benefits. There is evidence that the experience of being in a loving relationship involves various neurotransmitters and hormones that affect the body on a systematic level. This connection is seen when exploring research in this area related to anxiety, stress management, and depression. Furthermore, research shows the crucial importance of secure relationships in the development of coping skills. Accordingly, social isolation is linked to higher rates of depression and anxiety, and psychologists have concluded that encouraging patients to form stable, secure, and loving relationships aids in recovery from common mental illnesses.
