Hugging Is Good Medicine
Did you hug anyone today? If not, go find someone and hug them. Why you say? Well, who doesn’t love a good hug? And rumours has it hugging is good for you, not just because it feels good to get a hug.
It transfers energy and gives the person hugged an emotional lift. You need four hugs a day for survival, eight for maintenance, and twelve for growth. Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have the words for. And the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one.
So it seems even science agrees hugging is a good thing to do. I wonder how that research was carried out. Did they have people wired up and told them to hug to see what happened? I hope so. Would’ve loved to be a part of that research project.
