Take a Bunny Break, Release Oxytocin

posted by chattering mind

Okay everybody, stretch your arms to the ceiling, roll your shoulders forward and back, and by all means (please!) take a baby bunny/kitten Cuteoverload.com break right here at your desk!

Want more? Catsinsinks.com is pretty adorable too.

Oxytocin is that yummy hormone released when a woman looks into the face of her newborn, and it effects the “contractions of the myo-epithelial cells of the breast for the milk ejection reflex,” according to this site that explains the phenomenon. The hormone can also be released during sexual stimulation or intercourse. Enjoy!

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
