The butterflies in your stomach, your heart beating faster and nervous giggles are just a few of the many side-effects of being in love. Here are four other amazing things that happen to your body when you fall in love.
Your aches and pains fade away
Being in love is like a natural remedy to body ache. According to a study by the Stanford University School of Medicine, love acts exactly like a painkiller by activating the same neural receptors in the brain that make pain go away.
You have trouble sleeping
Thinking about your love interest can keep you up at night. While this comes off as being a bit obsessive, it’s completely normal and with time, you should be able to go back to your usual sleep cycle.
Your cortisol levels go up
Cortisol(hydrocortisone), is a hormone released when you’re stressed out. When you realise you’re falling in love, or when you meet your partner for the the first few times in your relationship, your cortisol levels might just go up as it can be a very stressful time.
You may lose your appetite
Love is responsible for releasing dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centres. It also makes you think of nothing but the object of your desire, thus making everything else, including your appetite, inconsequential.
