This Is Why Hugging Is the Most Beautiful Form of Communication (Video)

Hugging is a powerful way to express comfort, love, fear, admiration, sadness, joy, and happiness, and it is a way to deeply connect to another human being and show compassion, care, and comfort.

Virginia Satir, the often quoted family therapist says that we need 4 hugs a day for survival, 8 for maintenance, and 12 hugs a day for growth.

Hugs are vital to our health and wellbeing, and even scientists have confirmed this, so here is why you should give and receive as many hugs a day as possible:

– Hugs strengthen the immune system, as the gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge activates the Solar Plexus Chakra, which in turn stimulates the thymus gland, and thus regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells

– Hugging helps when someone is grieving, as it can provide true solace, soothes pain, and calms the soul, by giving strength to go on and escape the emotional torture

– Hugging lowers stress by reducing cortisol levels. A 2013 study has shown that participants who had a 15-minute conversation with their remote partner through a life-size huggable humanoid device had drastically lower stress levels than others who conversed through mobile phones. Hugs calm and improve mood, and provide warmth and closeness 

– Hugging relaxes the muscles, and reduces the tension in the body, alleviating pain, and soothing aches by boosting circulation into the soft tissues

– Hugs lower the risk of illness, as they reduce stress and prevent its negative effects. A 2014 study which involved 404 adult participants found that hugs and social interaction lower stress and prevent illness by supporting the immune system

– Hugging reduces fear and anxiety, and a 2013 study published by the Association for Psychological Science showed that touch alleviates fear in people with low self-esteem

– Hugging improves mood, increases the levels of oxytocin, the “love hormone” or the “bonding hormone”, and leads to happiness and euphoria

– Hugs balance out the nervous system, and the galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance. The moisture and electricity in the skin indicate a more balanced state in the nervous system — parasympathetic.

Therefore, start enjoying hugs even more than before, as they are the warmest and simplest way to feel happiness, enjoy health, connect with people, and express your true emotions.

    Hello Angle#3,

    Charlie here. I’m glad you brought this up. Did you know when people give me doughnuts I HUG them? I call it the doughnut-effect. :lol: :lol:

    Then there is a double bonus. You can enjoy the doughnut after. It’s incredibull. Forget about Coke. Forget about meditating. Forget about Gurl Scout trans-fatty acid cookies. Give out doughnuts and hugs instead!

    Signed,

    Charlie (an advocate of world piece – of doughnut) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Nice article only one problem by hugging especially some low minded person, you might absorb the negative energies and karma from that person. So be careful whom you hug. Yogis don’t usually hug because of that reason. Even whom ever you hug you might get something, including animals. Amma doesn’t seem to mind, but she might be protected as she is doing so important mission after all. If you love hugging get at least some mantra to protect you. I still hug people sometimes though as it is so difficult to deny.
