Wouldn’t you like to relieve stress, reduce pain, and be left with more happiness? How about if you could do that at no cost or additional training? It is possible and very, very simple. Just give a hug and give them often.
Research has now shown that a hug lasting at least 20 seconds releases the right chemicals in your body to achieve stress reduction, pain relief, and promotes a feeling of closeness. The beautiful part of this is that not only do you get the benefits, but you are also giving those benefits to the one you hug. Sometimes it really is that easy.
