Coffee is a hug in a mug
September 30th - Hugs have power. ((hugs))
I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.
Researchers have found that giving your loved ones an affectionate squeeze can be actually good for your health. Hugs have a therapeutic effect on people. They show someone you care about them. Hugs can decrease your blood pressure and heart rate in stressful situations. They can strengthen you immune system.
Hugging communicates that you are safe, loved and that you are not alone, a much needed message right about now.
I’m so thankful that after being vaccinated for the corona virus I can once again safely hug my loved ones. We had to go such a long time with out them. I hope that never happens again. And I intend to do as much hugging as I can.
As I live a lone I don’t get as many as I want, but I do make up for it when I can.. So I’m sending some virtual hugs your way today!
If you’re angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug - which is all the more reason to do so. It’s hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that’s precisely what happens when we hug each other.
