2. Helps You Sleep Better
Anyone with experience can admit to you that after making love, your sleep is far more relaxing than your average day without it. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that getting yourself a good night’s sleep is also very healthy. But, the brain has a chemical called oxytocin which relieves you of stress when it is released, and this can occur when you are making love. Oxytocin lowers pain levels and increases endorphins. Specialists say that sex and feeling loved, decrease stress, which makes worries disappear and allows you to fall into a deep sleep. Making love also entails the contraction of muscles and movement in the body that will deplete it of energy and in turn, enable it to be overloaded with these good-feeling hormones that provide a soothing effect.
