Christina Sarich |Naturalsociety | May 14th, 2013 |In study conducted at the University of Zurich, the ‘love’ hormone otherwise known as oxytocin was shown to lower the ‘stress’ hormone cortisol and regulate interpersonal relationships in a positive way. In both romantic relationships and more professional partnerships, oxytocin can help to build trust and intimacy. It also fosters more cooperation and keeps the work place more harmonious, whether a virtual one or a brick and mortar office.More of the neurochemical oxytocin can be created by giving platonic hugs or cuddling up with your partner. It can also inspire leaders to give spontaneous positive feedback and compliments, which makes for a very happy workforce. After all, everyone wants to feel appreciated. As the world becomes more connected through global interactions, oxytocin might just be the way to keep those relationships positive.
