Love Is All You Need... Well, it's a Start

Updated: Apr 29

All you need is love. Is this true? If The Beatles said so, it must be true.

When it comes to your physical health, there may be other things, but love is a great starting point. It can be beneficial to your health in a myriad of ways.

We all want to feel better, live longer, and decrease stress. If we begin with love, we can help our bodies be in good health. It can be as simple as a hug or the feeling of security that is present because you are loved. This love can be felt from yourself (self-love), another individual, friends or even divine influence to experience these benefits. Here are 5 ways that love plays a positive role in your physical well-being.

Love Promotes Emotional and Mental Well Being

What would you do to have more self-confidence or greater self image?

Having supportive and loving relationships can aid in this. Studies show that those who are in a relationship with a significant other or who have strong family ties and deep friendships, experience higher levels of self-worth and a better self-image (1). When one feels secure and safe, anxiety is reduced and feelings of depression are lessened. This feeling of safety leads to a vulnerability which as Brene Brown says "Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change". It is these types of things that allow us to grow and have amazing self-confidence and an even more amazing self image.

Love Lowers your Stress and Diminishes Anxiety
