Research shows a proper deep hug, where the hearts are pressing together, can benefit you in these ways:

1. The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. ~

2. Hugs can instantly boost #oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

3. Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one's #serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.

4. Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus #Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body's production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.

5. Hugging boosts self-esteem. From the time we're born our family's touch shows us that we're loved and special. Hugs connect us to our ability to self love.

6. #Hugging relaxes muscles. Hugs release tension in the body. ~

7. Hugs balance out the nervous system. The galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance. The effect in moisture and electricity in the skin suggests a more balanced state in the nervous system - parasympathetic.

8. Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Hugs educate us how love flows both ways.

9. Hugs are so much like meditation and laughter. They teach us to let go and be present in the moment. ~

10. The #energy exchange between the people hugging is an investment in the #relationship. It encourages #empathy and understanding.

iloveyou.sweetie “I just want to be there for you. I want to be able to hold your hand when you’re nervous. I want to be able to hug you really tight when you feel alone. I want to be able to hold you together when you feel like you’re falling apart. I want to be the shoulder you cry on and the person who’s arms you collapse in when your world is crashing down. I want to be the one you go to to seek comfort and advice. I want to be the one who tucks you in at night, makes you breakfast in the morning and reminds you everyday that you’re absolutely amazing, because you are. I want to be the one that you get out of bed for, the one that makes it easier to get through another day. I want to help you get better. I want to help you get through all of this. And, I want you, the good and the bad, all of you.”
i want you
