Ways to create oxytocin #1 and #2

What is oxytocin you may ask? A quick search on wikipedia says it is a "mammalian hormone that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain." So what is so special about this neurotransmitter that we want to increase its production?

John Gray, the same guy who wrote the Mars & Venus series shared in his latest book - Why Mars and Venus collide- that Oxytocin is a feel-good hormone from Venus. It is also the love and bonding hormone. One way to deal with stress for women is that they need to learn how to increase or create oxytocin for themselves. It is not enough that she depends on the partner to do the job. The book gave a long list of what she can do to help herself. Help was also provided to her partner who may be clueless.

Here I would like to share 2 tips.

#1 Buy flowers for yourself. The choosing process stimulates production of oxytocin.
Additional tip: If it makes you feel happier to get it from your other half, there's no rule that say you cannot buy on his behalf.

#2 Place the vase in strategic place where you can admire the flowers easily. Not only do they brighten up the room, it makes me happy just to see them.

The colours are so gorgeous. Ahh...
