Hang with Friends

Spending some time with your pals is sure to guarantee an oxytocin boost. It can be a verbal chat via the phone, a direct message on Instagram, or spending quality time face-to-face.

Practice Yoga

Yoga is a powerful practice and physical exercise that’s a natural way to increase oxytocin levels. It may also aid in reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep, and improving overall well-being.
