Small, daily investments in your relationship will inevitably go farther than grand gestures that you reserve for special occasions. I often compare it to dollar-cost-averaging — you don’t invest in the stock market once per year, but invest on an ongoing basis for higher returns in the long-term.
Some of the most popular 60-second favors across the globe include:
- a reduction in stress hormones
- lowered blood pressue
- increase in oxytocin levels (associated with bonding and relaxation)
- pain reduction
- improved pulmonary functioning (try breathing in sync with your partner while you spoon)
- healthy growth (research with babies suggests that physical touch increases the chances of height and weight increases)
- lowered blood sugar
- heightened immunity
Also…massages feel great and the hands are a popular, but underrated erogenous zone.
