Valentine's Day, These are the Benefits of Expressing Affection for Others

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV – February 14th is celebrated as Valentine’s Day, where people who celebrate it usually express their affection to people they love.

Expressing affection can be done in a variety of ways, from verbal expressions of love to giving gifts such as flowers or chocolates.

Reporting from an article at Harvard University, the feeling of being or love is a type of emotion that is abstract and mysterious for humans.

However, scientifically, love can be related to the presence of a chemical in the brain known as dopamine, a compound produced by the hypothalamus.

Dopamine is a chemical compound that is released when a person feels good things and makes him happy.
