National Hug Day - Monday 21st January

Monday, January 21st, 2019 | Uncategorized

Today is National Hug Day! While the act of hugging feels great, there are some unseen benefits associated with it:

  • Hugging releases oxytocin, a hormone associated with reduced stress and increased happiness
  • Studies have shown that hugging can improve immune systems, which means less colds
  • It can also release dopamine, which reduces feelings of stress and provides pain relief
  • Humans are naturally sociable, but hugs can help deepen bonds with those you love
  • Hugging can help combat potential feelings of loneliness

Hugging certainly helps us feel better so make sure you hug those who mean a lot to you today, but only if they want you to of course.
