The Power Of A Kiss . . .

If you want to be happy, healthy, successful, and live longer, give your spouse a kiss before you go to work each day. That's the conclusion of a study conducted by a group of German physicians and psychologists, in cooperation with insurance companies. According to Dr. Arthur Sazbo, the study found that those who kiss their spouse each morning miss less work because of illness than those who do not. They also have fewer auto accidents on the way to work. They earn 20 to 30 percent more monthly and they live about five years more than those who don't even give each other a peck on the cheek. The reason for this, says Dr. Sazbo, is that the kissers begin the day with a positive attitude. A kiss signifies a sort of “seal of approval” in the eyes of Dr. Sazbo and his colleagues and, they believe, those who don't experience it, for whatever reason, go out the door feeling not quite right about themselves.

Whether you give this study any credence or not, an "au revoir" kiss every morning can do you no harm! If you’re not a frequent kisser, why not try it every day for a month and see what happens? Acts of affection at the beginning of the day not only impress the receiver but transform the giver as well.

I think there is a lot of truth to this. My husband kisses me every morning before he leaves and every evening as soon as he walks in the door.
