Though there’s a lot of emphasis put on the importance of a healthy diet, exercise and sleep on our health (and rightfully so), there is one factor that beats out the rest of them when it comes to its healthful benefits, and that is love.
Love and connectedness rank above all else when it comes to longevity and wellness.
Did you know that married people have fewer doctor’s visits? Or that healthy relationships can lower blood pressure and ease anxiety? Or what about this… when you’re in a strong long-term relationship your brain is activated in a way that helps you manage pain better. Wounds heal faster. You get fewer colds. Stress is easier to manage. And above all, you live an overall longer, healthier life.
But not just any relationship can do these things. Studies have found that stable long-term relationships are superior to new romances.
“Where there is love there is life.” Mahatma Gandhi
Life and love go hand in hand. Without love what is life?

The surprising results listed above are proof that love does much more than fill the heart with joy. It heals the body and soul.
What makes up a strong, healthy, loving relationship? Many, many factors, including these…
These 10 things (plus many more) make up true connection: connection that has the power to heal. The importance of love in our loves is clear. We need it.
