5 Reasons Why Love is the Best Thing in the World 

When you’re in a business that celebrates love on a daily basis, the most romantic holiday of the year deserves it’s own special tribute. So this Valentine’s Day, RiverStone is sharing some of our most heartfelt ideas about LOVE.

We regularly have the privilege of hearing beautiful love stories from our amazing couples! Your love is an inspiration to all of us, and we’re moved by the ways it impacts those around you. You see, love is contagious! When you’re deeply in love, it shows, and the world is a better place because of it. Here are just a few of the reasons we think LOVE is literally the BEST thing out there!!

  1. Love Makes You Happy

Let’s be honest, not much beats the giddy, happy feeling of being in love! That’s because being in love releases chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that control the brain’s pleasure and reward centers. The result? Less perceived pain, lowered blood pressure, and improved mood! In other words, being in love produces physiological changes that make us measurably healthier and happier!

  1. Love Gives You Purpose

Love, the feeling, is pretty awesome, but love the VERB is unstoppable! Loving another person fulfills something significant inside of us. It lets us know we’re not alone and what we’re doing matters. Having a purpose beyond ourselves is a powerful motivator. That kind of love makes the world go round.

  1. Love Changes Your Perspective

When you have love, you perspectives shifts. You are more positive, more hopeful, more centered, and more selfless. That’s because love changes the way we look at ourselves and the world around us. We value another’s opinions and care about their needs. And they, in turn, bring a whole new world of possibilities and experiences to our lives. As a result, we grow and expand our thinking, and we’re much better because of it.

What the world needs now is love sweet love, it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.

  1. Love is Healing

Love has the power to heal all sorts of wounds. It can build bridges, repair broken hearts, and even restore torn relationships. Love is the best medicine!

  1. Love Makes You Fearless


Not only does it make you fearless, love gives you confidence! With your partner by your side, you can conquer the world!

Thank you to all of our readers, couples, families, and communities for the beautiful ways you demonstrate love everyday! From our family to yours, Happy Valentine’s Day!!
