I came across the article “How to Be a Good Kisser – 10 Tips From Scientific Research” a few days ago through StumbleUpon. It is not new, originally published by Time on May 30, 2014, but I thought that given today is Valentine’s Day there was one item mentioned that would be of appropriate.
“A ten-year psychology study undertaken in Germany during the 1980s found that men who kissed their wives before leaving for work lived, on average, five years longer, earning 20 to 30 percent more than peers who left without a peck good-bye. The researchers also reported that not kissing one’s wife before leaving in the morning increased the possibility of a car accident by 50 percent. Psychologists do not believe it’s the kiss itself that accounts for the difference but rather that kissers were likely to begin the day with a positive attitude, leading to a healthier lifestyle.”
So guys, make sure you kiss your partner this morning before heading to work. It will be a great way to start off Valentine’s Day, and if you keep it up, you may live a little longer. You may also save some money on your car insurance.
