Did you know...
The average length of a hug
between two people
is 3 seconds,
but researchers have discovered
When a hug lasts
there is a therapeutic effect
on the body and mind.
The reason is that a sincere hug
produces a hormone called "oxytocin",
also known as
the love hormone.
This substance has many benefits in our
physical and mental health,
among other things,
to relax, to feel safe
calm our fears and anxiety.
This wonderful calming is offered free of charge
every time we have a person in our arms,
when we cradled a child,
cherish a dog or cat,
we're dancing with our partner,
the closer we get to someone or
just hold the shoulders of a friend.
