To be more healthy, hug more!

The only thing is–you need to do it fully to get the full benefit. For example–I gave/got a hug from my husband earlier.  Close your eyes, don’t look around and let your other senses share in the hug, not just your arms. Smell their particular fragrance (hopefully its a good one)–my hubby smelled of warm sun but also of the bodywash he had used (Old Spice). I could feel his muscles and sun warmed shirt. I listened to his heart beating strong and steady. And I breathed. Just breathed in and out allowing my heart and mind to slow for just that moment. For just that moment I forgot about all the things I needed to do and all the other thoughts in my mind to be put on hold.

Hug more…..and often.
