Let’s give our loved ones a smooch this National Kissing Day.

July 6th marks the unofficial holiday, National Kissing Day.  First established in the United Kingdom, this holiday has spread to other countries around the world and is sometimes referred to as World Kissing Day.

As the name suggests, National Kissing Day encourages us to pucker up and give a kiss to the people we love most.  One of the most beautiful things about this day is that it celebrates kisses of all kinds.  Whether it is a romantic lip lock with our significant otheror a sweet peck on our children’s cheeks, kisses are a wonderful way to show affection and tell others that we love and care about them.

National Kissing Day also celebrates the benefits of physical contact.  While many people don’t think about it, kissing and reaching out to touch others may have significant health benefits.  For instance, studies have shown that physical touch releases oxytocin, the “feel good” hormone that can inspire positive thinking and expand trust between individuals.  Additionally, physical touch also increases levels of dopamine and serotonin, which can help regulate mood and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.  Finally, studies suggest that physical touch can help boost our immune systems and help to lower our heart rates and blood pressure.

Join us at The Maria Sanchez Show as we spread love and reap the health benefits of physical touch this National Kissing Day. Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown. Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
