“The human brain is awesome, it functions 24 hours a day from the day we are born and only stops when we are taking an exam or fall in love”

There’s some truth in that joke.

Study shows that there is a difference in the brain functional architecture

Between people who are in love, single or just ended a romantic relationship.

Basically, your relationship will affect your brain functions

Especially how motivated you are and the way you handle your emotions.

Whenever you see, talk to, hang out with someone you love

This is what happens to your brain and body

Your brain is filled with dopamine (make you happy) and oxytocin (make you calm)

Which helps to reduce stress level & lower the blood pressure

So just fall in love and you would get the same results as exercising & eating healthy

And if you’re having some pain in your body

It would feel less severe

Maybe that’s why they say love heals :)
