Today is Hugging Holiday!
Hugs are important in many ways. They help strengthen social ties and express your emotions, but people actually need them to maintain health! Hugging helps boost your immune system, can relieve stress and pain, lowers blood pressure, and improves your mood!
Hugs become even more valuable as you age! Loneliness that may come with older years may increase stress and harm overall health. Hugging has been proven to directly fight feelings of loneliness and help improve the health of elderly experiencing loneliness!
