Are you a touchy person? Do you like hugs? Do you feel like your “Hug Tank” is full?
They say we need 8 hugs a day for maintenance and 12 hugs a day for growth.
If you want to get real technical, you could really benefit from a 20 second hug! When you hug for 20 seconds, the feel-good hormone oxytocin is released which creates a stronger bond and connection between the huggers. Oxytocin has been shown to boost the immune system and reduce stress.
Grab your bust friend (Maybe not a stranger) and hug them!
