Health Benefits of Love: Part Two

Love and Pain

Friendship_4

Fact: the comfort of holding your loved one’s hand can minimize your feelings of pain. In

one study, women subjected to the threat of an electrical shock experienced less pain

when they were holding their husbands’ hands. And these feelings of pain decreased

more where there was higher marital satisfaction. Perceived pain was also reduced when

subjects held the hands of close friends.
