Feel good gossiping
love a good natter? Chatting to your friends and family doesn’t only build bonds, it could help boost your health, too. Experts found that gossiping for just 15 minutes increases levels of the feel-good hormone oxytocin while lowering levels of the stress hormone cortisol. And when done in a non-negative way that doesn’t affect another individual’s self-worth, it’s thought that gossiping makes us feel better because it allows us to vent any frustrations about how other people’s actions have affected us.
Strengthen your relationships and feel good in 2019 by having regular catch ups with friends and family.
