Can relationships be bad for your health?Posted on: February 11, 2013 16:50:54
It can often feel like love takes over every part of your life when you're dating, but is it actually bad for your health?
According to research, relationships do in fact impact on your wellbeing, proving to influence both negatively and positively on an individual.
When things are going well, emotions are likely to alter, a person's outlook in life could change and even the way we act can shift dramatically.
Similarly, when things aren't going so well, routines are broken, mindsets are different, and even what's happening internally might not be the same anymore.
Outlining seven factors that could be affected by a relationship – or lack of one – psychologist Maryann Troiani said there are a large number of external influences that could impact our health.
If you've had issues with fluctuating weight for example, you might find there is a direct correlation between what is going on in your love life at the time.
Couples that are happy are more likely to motivate each other to stay healthy, but when issues arise between the two, there is a chance the pounds could pile back on.
"Dissatisfaction in the relationship can lead to passive-aggressive eating behaviours and sleep problems, which will lead to weight gain," she said.
Sleeping complaints and stress levels can also dramatically alter when experiencing the peaks and troughs of a romance, the findings indicated, although maintaining regular physical intimacy could alleviate problems in both of those areas.
You'd be surprised how beneficial a hug or holding hands can be and both are extremely important elements of a relationship, Ms Troiani said.
"It only takes a few seconds of contact to stimulate those hormones and to help overcome stress and anxiety," she added.
The research concluded that strong partnerships could enable us to live longer, adopt healthier habits and avoid illness, although when things aren't going so well, romances could in fact lead to stress and a weak immune system.
However, as many UK singles would agree, there is nothing more satisfying than being loved and being in love - whatever the side effects might be. So if you're still searching for the one, why not head online?
