Love and science

The micro-moment is an interaction, between you and hugging your neighbor, between you and smiling at the baby on a plane, between you and the temporary connection to the stranger in the UPS delivery truck.

The warmth of everyday greetings makes you healthier, says Professor Barbara Fredrickson in her book Love 2.0: Finding Happiness and Health in Moments of Connection

“When you really connect with another person a beautifully choreographed biological dance is unfolding.”

The micro-moments add up, from the brain to the heart via the vagus nerve. Every interaction is, therefore, an opportunity to increase your happiness. So tune up the love: give and receive to improve your heart health.
