Why Hugging Feels So Good?
Isn’t hugging causing the best emotions ever? The FEEL of love and reassuring comfort are all that matters to us. They are such irreplaceable emotions that each one of us wants to hold on them: like – FOREVER.
Hugging is so beneficial that even medical studies confirm that health benefits of physical touch can extend our lives.
And you wonder how?
Well, in so many ways.
Buy Bye To Anxiety, Stress And Blood Pressure
When we hug or kiss our loved ones, our oxytocin hormone levels rise up significantly. This powerful hormone has the ability to alleviate social anxiety and produce feelings of trust. It also has the ability to reduce stress.
A study has shown that women who had more hugs from their partners, have been shown to have significantly lower blood pressure levels, than those women who do not have the luck of being hugged by their partners.
In other words, affectionate physical behavior can lower stressful life reactions.
A close warm hug can increase the feeling of safety, trust, security and belonging. All of these are main foundations of all healthy relationships.
A touch is crucial in creating and strengthening romantic relationships.
Research has shown that relationships in which hugging and touching are present on everyday basis, tend to be stronger and long lasting.
Conclusion: More hugs – better relationship!
Elevation Of Happiness
It is proven that physical touch can increase our serotonin levels and fights and regulate dopamine. High levels of dopamine can lead to aggressive and sometimes violent behavior.
Conclusion: More hugs – less violence!
Say Farewell To Tension
As we hug and our happy hormone do it’s own party, you won’t feel anything but pleasure and happiness which leads to lowering tension levels.
When you are in close and intense hug with someone you love, it is not so difficult to relax. And when you are relaxed, you lessen the tension in your body.
Conclusion: More hugs – less tension!
Restored Nervous System
Did you know that one simple honest hug can restore the balance in our nervous system?
As many live in a permanent state of high alert and anxiety, a simple hug can release from those unwanted emotions. By stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system with a hug, we can balance ourselves. And when we are in a state of balance, we naturally slow down and feel calmer.
Conclusion: More hugs – more balanced we are!
The Power Of Touch
Touching is a precise way of communication. The way we touch sends clear emotional signals. By analyzing touching as a big part of body language, you can sense the affections given or received. The way it is done, sends a clear message to you – an affection.
Scientists believe that touching simply means enhancing messages sent, or signaled, through speech or body language, and it is a precise way to communicate emotion.
