6 REASONS WHY HUGS ARE POWERFUL.

Hugging is a powerful way of communicating you care and is also effective at healing sickness, disease, loneliness, depression, stress and anxiety. This simple human touch can deliver such joy and contentment.

Here are 5 reasons why you should  squeeze as many lingering, loving hugs into your day as you possibly can:

#1 HUGGING DEEPENS THE BOND

The hormone Oxycontin is being released through a hug. Oxytocin fortifies bonds with our loved ones and has the capability to stimulate solidarity between total strangers.

#2 HUGGING CULTIVATES TRUST

Hugging nurtures human relationships, cultivates trust, increases confidence, and frankly, makes us happier people.

#3 HUGGING LOWERS STRESS

A good hug literally decreases the levels of cortisol found in the body which are produced when we are stressed out. Talk about a drug-free anti-anxiety treatment.

#4 HUGGING LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE.

Your heart will thank you for the hugs you collect through the day.

#5 HUGGING BUILDS CONNECTION

Connections are fostered when people take the time to appreciate and acknowledge one another. A hug is one of the easiest ways to show appreciation and acknowledgement of another person.

# 6 Hugs rival yoga

A good hug has the power to prompt us towards taking deeper breaths, immediately puts us in a more relaxed state of being. Almost everything you can achieve in yoga minus the benefits of stretching.

The world is a busy place, with every one of us constantly rushing to the next task. By slowing down and taking a moment to offer sincere hugs throughout the day, we’re benefiting ourselves, others. As you can see from the list above, there is nothing a hug cannot fix, why not try it out starting from today?

Make a commitment to have more hugs in your day, a simple solution to happier and healthier you.
