Cuddling helps sleep patterns

You may be wondering how cuddling comes into play in this article. As it turns out, even cuddling can help drastically improve your health and sleep cycles. Cuddling releases oxytocin, a feel-good hormone that increases happiness and reduces stress. Cuddling makes you less anxious and stressed, and relaxes you enough to lead to healthy sleep. You don't necessarily have to fall asleep holding your partner, even as much as 10 minutes of cuddling is enough to practically ensure a good night’s sleep.
