So how do we ex­pe­ri­ence more of the good stuff and its body-tin­gling ben­e­fits?

Good - - HEART THROB -

Well, that’s easy. First of all, be more kind. Care hap­pens to be one of our great­est cur­ren­cies, and when we in­vest this way, the re­turns are price­less. Ev­i­dence re­veals that the more some­one re­ceives and ob­serves kind­ness, the more they will be kind them­selves, which leads to a re­ward­ing, up­ward spi­ral of gen­eros­ity and love in re­la­tion­ships. Se­condly, even though our mod­ern day lives may be com­plex, find­ing hap­pi­ness is sim­ple. We all want to feel con­nected, seen and un­der­stood – and this is where our love lan­guage comes in to play. Each of us has pre­ferred ways of show­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion, es­tab­lish­ing union, and com­mu­ni­cat­ing our de­sires. This may be through turn­ing to­wards oth­ers with bids for con­nec­tion, acts of ser­vice, un­in­ter­rupted qual­ity time, words of af­fir­ma­tion, phys­i­cal touch and/or thought­ful gifts. These ges­tures not only help us en­gage with oth­ers, it’s also how we get our emo­tional needs met.
