Hi Healthy Living Junkies!

We all love hug, and they feel awesome but did you know hugs have been scientifically proven to be good for you?  Here are 6 Reasons why you need a hug!

 

6 Reasons Why You Need A Hug ❤

 

1.  Hugs allow physical interaction, building trust and a feeling of safety.  Hugs makes us more open and increases positive communication.

2. When you feel lonely, isolated, or angry, giving or receiving a hug boost oxytocin levels, which heal those negative feelings and promotes a feeling of safety and positivity.

 

3. Hugging relaxes you by  releasing tension in the body, taking away pain while soothing the body by increasing circulation into soft tissues.

4. We all love cuddling, but did you know long hugs actually boosts serotonin levels, which is responsible for  elevating mood and creating happiness!

5. Hugging makes us feel good about ourselves and boost self esteem.  It shows we are cared for and loved by making us feel safe and happy.

 

6. Hugs reduces stress.  Hugs help us let go of what ever is bothering us and just enjoy the moment.  Reducing stress has all kinds of positive benefits including lowering your blood pressure.

 

Next time you are stressed or see someone who is having a rough day, reach out and give them a hug.  Both of you will get the positive effects from hugs.  Remember, part of living a healthy and fit lifestyle is to make sure all aspects of your life is healthy, not just the way you look, but more importantly, the way you feel about yourself.   Being healthy and fit starts from the inside, and looking awesome in that swimsuit is just bonus!  =)
