17. GIVE A SURPRISE

Fact: One of the most important brain regions involved in discovering, processing and storing new sensory impressions is the hippocampus, located in the temporal lobe of the cerebral cortex. Surprise stimuli tend to activate the hippocampus more than familiar stimuli do, which is why the hippocampus serves as the brain’s “novelty detector.” It in turn improves memory and sense of well being.

Whether it’s a card, flowers, dinner or just a movie night, surprise your loved one. Surprise creates a channel of reactions in our minds which lead to secretion of endorphins and lowers down stress hormone. Giving and receiving a surprise are equally good. You are happy to see the smile on your loved one’s face and even happier to know that you are the reason behind it.  It adds spice to Love Life.
