Feel good gos­sip­ing

Spirit and Destiny - - Mind, Body & Spirit -

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.
