Kissing is one of the most popular pastimes, and for good reason! Apart from the sheer enjoyment it can bring you, it also provides benefits to your everyday life. There is more evidence than ever pushing you to make kissing a part of your daily routine.

Here are 10 reasons to make sure you kiss everyday:

#1. Calories

If you skipped the gym for the day, make sure to get in your makeout session. Kissing boosts your metabolism to twice as fast as usual and can even burn 2 to 3 calories per minute. Do your calculations!
