Well, if you have missed it today, hurry up to give a tight hug to your loved one at least for a minute and see the wonders of it. For, the rest of the day you will feel so relaxing and stress free.  Hugging someone is one of the most positive forms of communication. It expresses love, gratitude, respect, approval and forgiveness. It’s also an excellent way to achieve emotional satisfaction. Surprisingly, this act also has got a good load of health benefits.

Scientists have said that, hugging releases a hormone called oxytocin into the bloodstream. This hormone helps in lowering the blood pressure and reducing the levels of stress and anxiety. It is also known as a good source of boosting the skills of your memory. A good snuggle allows the oxytocin to flow continuously. We produce this hormone on a daily basis through activities like playing with a pet, singing, dancing, knocking boots and other activities. However, hugging is one of the fastest ways to flush in the flow of the level oxytocin in your body and calms down your nervous system.

Hugging also releases the hormone serotonin and dopamine. These hormones help in uplifting the mood and feel good. And, as a result you will get closer to the person who makes you feel good. This in turn gives a positive effect on your health.

In one way, hugging is good for health, for the release of the hormone oxytocin lowers the blood pressure. Low blood pressure reduces the risk of heart attack. A note for people with weak hearts or high blood pressure – Cuddle your loved one tightly everyday and see the magic of it.

The hormone Oxytocin is produced in the pituitary gland that is popularly known for increasing the bonding and social behavior. Increased levels of oxytocin are also found in people in good relationships. They are also found in women undergoing the child birth process and during breastfeeding. And, this increased level helps the Mother to bond with the baby. Researchers have also stated that hugging on a daily basis softens your personality and make you more empathetic over time.

Neurologists have also stated that hugs impart a positive effect only if the two hugging trust each other. The associated feelings need to be present mutually then only the corresponding signals will be sent across. In case of unwanted hugs from strangers, the hormone is not released and there is a rise in anxiety levels. This could further lead to stress and distance keeping behaviour.

Hugging is certainly a good form of communication; however trust between the two is important.

It is also a good way of getting close to each other. If your relationship is not working out then try hugging your partner for 20 minutes everyday and it will bring out a significant difference in your relationship. In the past five years, cuddle workshops have also originated in London. Well, all of us have experienced a hug at some point. Some are lucky to get it every day. And, I am one of those lucky ones, as I get to a tight from my mom every night before sleeping.

How about you- When was it the last time that you got to cuddle someone really tight. If not, you share one with someone today!
