I was talking to someone about hugs the other day and we both agreed that there is nothing in the world better than a good hug. The simple action of a hug can change a person's day for the better. A recent study on hugging says that more frequent partner hugs helps to lower blood pressure and stress levels.

Then I saw a blog post on hugging from enlightened-consciousness.com and I wanted to share. 

Hugging is the most beautiful form of communication. 

By Samuel Johnson, February 17, 2019

Hugging, the most incredible forms of contact that one could give each other. Hugging benefits include - therapeutic, calming, natural pain killer and stimulating multiple good feeling glands within our bodies. 

While hugging, our bodies begin to undergo huge physiological changes, and balancing our nervous system. Not only does this happen to our bodies, while being hugged, the level of cortisol circulating through our bodies are lowered excessively, calming us and relieving tension and stress immediately. 

Have you ever noticed after a hug your mood lightens and you feel confident? This is the result of being stress-free and relaxed. 

Hugging stimulates and encourages the release of serotonin and the endorphin hormone into our bloodstream - stimulating sensations of contentment, enjoyment and satisfaction. 

To someone feeling depressed and lonely, they could be experiencing a deficiency of serotonin and endorphins - Huggin increases both serotonin and endorphin levels. 


A study at the University of North Carolina concluded that volunteers who had little to no contact at all with their partners developed a much faster heart rate compared to those who had fewer hugs from their partners. 

And we all know by now, by lowering our heart rate means less chance of a cardiac related issues. 



Hugging one another daily would be an essential benefit to our mental and physical health. We would feel happier and sleep better. 

Knowing this, wouldn't you say it would be an excellent idea to get hugging.
