Do You Have Approach Anxiety?

An oxytocin nasal spray like Liquid Trust can go a long way toward making your conversation with someone new a great success. However, if the possibility of being turned down keeps you from even getting close enough to start the conversation, you'll never get the chance to develop that deeper connection. I've found a couple of videos that can help you start to ease that anxiety and get you close enough so you can take the next step. Actually, one video will help in that way. The other will only work if you're…well, if you're Benny Hill.

“A Profound Calming Effect”

Posted: March 24th, 2010 | Author: skwilcox | Filed under: Calm, News, Trust | No Comments »

That's how one researcher described the effects of oxytocin. In her book, Inner Peace for Busy Women, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. describes the oxytocin released by touching and even talking as having a profound calming effect.

Again, women seem to be more receptive to the effects of oxytocin than men, and some of the key ways they are able to boost their levels of the trust hormone include touching, especially skin-to-skin, and talking with others.

No one has really defined what type of talk spurs oxytocin release, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it doesn't have to be quoting Walt Whitman verses or whispering sweet nothings. (On the other hand, you probably don't want to come off as an intense, creepy, stalker type either). Just talk. Nice easy conversation. Put the focus on her: what do you like to do, where did you grow up, that's a beautiful bracelet…where did you get it. Get the picture?

See an article discussing the book here.
