Did you know that hugs can save a life. Hugs can give you the power to survive. Medical science has found that hugs are healthy. They are beneficial to both the giver and receiver.
Research says that we need 4 hugs a day for survival, 8 hugs a day for maintenance, and 12 hugs a day for growth.
Have you been hugged today?
Benefits Of A Hug
Hugs are good for our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health.
Science shows that kissing, snuggling, hugging, and holding hands create more than just magical moments. They can actually boost your overall health, help you lose weight, fight off infection, sickness and disease.
Hugs activate the release of the hormone oxytocin and reduces cortisol levels, which in turn decreases anxiety, fear, stress and depression and induces sleep. Hugs create a feeling relaxation.
Other research states that hugs reduce blood pressure and heart rate in stressful situations, and rejuvenates the body. Hugs can actually strength your immune system.
Hugs can boost serotonin and dopamine levels, as well as release endorphins of "the feel good" hormones and natural pain relievers.
A hug helps us bond with others and experience a sense of safety, comfort, empathy, and calm. Hugs increase pleasure and well being, and reduce pain symptoms.
Hugs are invigorating and rejuvenating, and have no unpleasant side effects. Medical science says that hugs are so healthy they are now dubbed "A miracle drug".
A hug is not artificial. Its ingredients are a hundred percent wholesome. Hugging is the ideal gift, great for any occasion, fun to give and to receive. It shows you care. It comes with its own wrapping. And of course, it's fully returnable.
When we open our hearts and our arms in a warm embrace, we encourage others to do the same.
How To Harness The Power Of A Hug
If you're alone, hug yourself. Go ahead - it may sound silly, new studies report that hugging yourself can significantly relieve pain. A hug is cheaper than going to the spa or getting a massage, and has no side effects like popping a pill.
Go ahead and hug yourself happy. Hug yourself the way you want to be hugged, to create the sensation you are seeking, for as long as you'd like!
Cuddle an Animal
If you have a cat or dog, snuggling with your furry friend. Snuggling with them releases a cuddle hormone the same way it does with a human. Touching a pet activates your sensory nerves, causing them to release your feel-good hormone.
Stroking an animal helps build attachment the same way human skin-to-skin contact does.
Reach Out Your Arms And Hug Someone
If you want to live a healthier happier life, start hugging people and show them you care.
There's no denying the power of a hug.
Now, more than ever, people need more hugs. If you want to warm your heart and make yourself feel good, stretch out your arms to someone today and give them a big loving, comforting, Hug. It will make both of you feel good.
I'm a hugger. I love to hug and be hugged back. I'm not afraid to hug anyone. Even those who think they don't want a hug and may back off at first, you will see a smile on their face when you release your arms from around them.
We need more huggers in this world. Won't you be one!!!
Think of the people in your life. When the pain of life is unbearable, when words are too feeble to heal the grief, you can hug someone in a time of suffering and heal them when words simply will not work.
