Senior Health - Lovers Live Longer
"It's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive!" Famous words from a famous doctor - and oh-so-true when it comes to sex and ageing.
Health studies indicate (as well as some really hip oldsters) that keeping passion alive increases health benefits - both physically and emotionally.
First of all, when we feel loved - there isn't a feeling like it in the world. And it involves quite a lot of trust.
If you have ever been in love with someone only to find out at some point along life's road that the relationship was 99/1 - with the one percent falling to the wrong side, it's not a happy feeling. These situations take a long time to recover from and most of the time, they have lasting scars that may never fully heal.
But on a happier note, when you are loved for who you are rather than for how you look - there is not a feeling that in the world that can match this.
Loving and being loved impacts the length of our lives as well as the quality. People who are lonely tend to experience far more health issues than those who are in secure relationships.
Unfortunately, we aren't all perfect. Actually, none of us are perfect.
And even the people that we hold so dear to our heart can give us stress.
It may be unintentional, but some where, some time along the way, those that we love will do something that may hurt us in an emotional way.
Amid these times of life, it's important to keep in mind that we are imperfect and that we should allow a window during these more negative interactions.
Generally, time heals those mild moments of conflict, particularly when the people involved have a forgiving heart.
