When you’re feeling disconnected from your partner, hug him (or her) for at least 6 seconds to get the oxytocin flowing. Commonly known as the love and bonding hormone, oxytocin activates the neurotransmitters in your brain that connect you with your loved one, and when it’s flowing, watch out! You’ll start to feel better almost instantly–more loved (as well as loving) and connected.
But the trick is that you need at least 6 seconds to get your oxytocin flowing. So no cheating!
