National Cuddle Up Day is a cozy and warm holiday in which everyone can participate. What could be better than a hug on a cold winter evening? If you’ve missed a date before, try not to do it today!
Did you know that hugging is not only pleasant, but also useful? Man has always been a social being, even in ancient times he did not exist alone, but formed tribes. Moreover, his life directly depended on interpersonal relationships. Now we also need touch, because it contributes to the production of the hormone of happiness – oxytocin. This element brings peace, happiness, a sense of protection to our brain… Hugs can be compared to effective group meditation.
Scientists have come to the conclusion: the absence of hugs is harmful to health. More than 70% of people do not like tactile sensations or are simply deprived of them. Because of this, a person can be tormented by prolonged depression and nervous breakdowns, self-esteem can also suffer. A baby in infancy should also receive a dose of hugs, otherwise there is a chance that he will often get sick.
National Day was created to guide people on the right path. Don’t give up on hugs and try to do pleasurable activities every day. We are sure you will appreciate the positive changes in the body!
