For today, do your best to hug as many people as you can. Be known as the local hugger. Be warned- no ‘uncle’ hugging allowed. So leave no space between you and those you hug. Let those you hug know that you really care about them.
Some reasons to incoporate hugging in your daily routine. Aim for a minimum of one hug per day.
1. The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.
2. Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.
3. Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one’s serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.
“A hug is a handshake from the heart.”
