A passionate kiss is a great relaxation technique, says stress consultant Michelle Kay McNabb. “When your mouth is in a kissing position, you are almost smiling and as our emotions and body language are so closely linked, it’s almost impossible to smile and feel tense at the same time,” she explains. “Also, your breathing becomes deeper and your eyes close when you kiss. That’s what you do when you relax. It’s a perfect way to shut out the world.”
