Hugs are the best

1) Hugging Reduces Stress

Scientists say that giving another person support through touch can reduce the stress of the person being comforted. It can even reduce the stress of the person.

2) Hugging Boosts Your Immune System

The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra.

3) Hugs increase your self-esteem

The cuddles we received from our Mom and Dad while growing up remain imprinted at a cellular level, and hugs remind us at a somatic level of that.

4) Hugging Is A Great Pain Reliever

It is said that the touch can reduce anxiety in people with low self-esteem. Touch can also keep people from isolating themselves when reminded of their mortality. Hugging is another form of touch that may help reduce pain.

5) Happiness, Happiness and Happiness

Oxytocin is a chemical in our bodies that scientists sometimes call the “cuddle hormone.” This is because its levels rise when we hug, touch, or sit close to someone else. Oxytocin is associated with happiness and less stress.

A 20-second hug, along with 10 minutes of hand-holding, also reduces the harmful physical effects of stress, including its impact on your blood pressure and heart rate….!

Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Hugs educate us how love flows both ways…!!
