If you are in love this Valentine’s Day, you have more than one reason to celebrate. Being involved in a healthy, loving relationship is good for the heart, says Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute cardiologist, Julie Damp, M.D.
“There are a couple of different theories behind why that might be,” Damp said.
Most of the theories seem to be related to the fact that people who are married or who are in close, healthy relationships tend to be less likely to smoke, are more physically active and are more likely to have a well-developed social structure. Along with that, they are more likely to have lower levels of stress and anxiety in their day-to-day lives.
