Your body heals faster when you focus on being happy and feel joy, says the professor.

The hormone also counteracts dangerous stress – “You get a buffer against stress”, says the Swedish professor Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg who has studied the effects of oxytocin for over 30 years. 

Joy provides both well-being and health, she continues.

In one of her books, Calm and Touc – The Healing Effects of Oxytocin in the Body, dr Uvnäs Moberg explains how oxytocin:

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Accelerates healing
  • Protects against stress
  • Increases tolerance for pain
  • Strengthens the cardiovascular system
  • and more … 
Allow yourself to make Joy an easy priority in your life.
