In our stressed out worlds, we run on fumes in a constant state of fight or flight. This leads to high levels of cortisol, adrenal burnout making our bodies work overtime just to exist, aging us and exhausting us. I learned a lot about this being the main culprit of prolonging the state of “spinning” so many of us women experience, from Dr. Sara Gottfried.
Additionally, when cortisol is high, it literally increases that Bully Voice inside, lowering our confidence big time. High cortisol throws off our thyroid, slowing down our metabolism, creating that spare tire, muffin top, which emotionally doesn’t make us feel so sexy…
Kissing gets you present, slows you down, stops the spinning, deepens intimacy, enhances foreplay, makes you feel seen, gotten and important… all the while lowering your cortisol, balancing your hormones, leading to a youthful energized calm body… mind… and spirit!
And kiss often.
