The average length of a hug between two people is said to be only 3 seconds (which is quite less if you ask me) That doesn’t eve come close to a sincere hug.
A sincere hug is approximately 15-20 seconds. When a hug lasts 20 seconds, there is a therapeutic effect on the body and mind. The reason is that a sincere hug produces a hormone called “oxytocin” which is also known as the love hormone.
This wonderful calming is offered free of charge every time we have…
~ a person in our arms
~ cherish a dog or cat
~ dance with our partner
~ the closer we get to someone
or just hold the shoulder of a friend.
I send you a ‘hug coupon’
How does it work?
You print it..cut it out and give it to someone who could do with a hug
It gives that person a chance to use that coupon on YOU…not necessarily at that moment but whenever he/she feels like they need a hug, they can use it then.
Lets start a huggin’ movement 🙂
