National Love People Day
Unconditional love can be a powerful force that inspires and lifts people up. That’s why people write books about it, compose poems about it, and have now created an entire day dedicated to it. This day, known as National Love People Day, falls on September 30th every year and is designed to help individuals explore unconditional love in their lives.
This is a good day to support the people in your community who need it the most, offer kind words to your neighbors, and embrace the spirit of love in everything you do.
The History of Love People Day
Love People Day is a holiday that was created by Lifeline Church—a church based in Chicago, Illinois. They established the day in 2017 to help bring people together and to inspire the spirit of unconditional love. It’s a day that encourages every business, community, church, and individual in the U.S. to join together and celebrate unconditional love.

Hugging Your Partner Relieves Stress
Looking for an instant stress reliever? If so, then you might want to consider giving your partner a heartfelt hug. Studies have shown that hugging your partner can reduce stress levels by up to 30%, so if you’re feeling stressed, give it a try.
Married People Have Fewer Heart Problems
Maybe there is a correlation between the heart and love. Several studies have shown that married individuals up to 50 years of age were 12% less likely to develop vascular diseases compared to single or divorced individuals.
Being in Love Reduces the Frequency of Headaches
To study the effects of oxytocin—a chemical compound that’s created in the human brain and often called the “love hormone,” Stanford University School of Medicine administered oxytocin transnasally to subjects who suffered from headaches to study the drug’s effects.
50% of the participants reported less headache pain for four hours, and 27% of participants reported no pain during the same four hours. This might just be a compelling argument for people with chronic migraines to engage in more activities that release oxytocin, such as hugging or cuddling.
Celebrating & Observing Love People Day
This might mean giving someone an unexpected gift, volunteering in the community, or performing some other good deed. People can also use the hashtag #NationalLovePeopleDay on social media sites.
