Those of us that are huggers are delighted to see this report from our friend in Florida, Toni Weidman, assuring us that hugging is good for our health.

I guess we will just have to live with the fact that this applies only when we hug someone that we know.  Spread your hugs and good health.

Please go to the original blog if you wish to leave comments that will be seen by Toni.

Have an outstanding week!

Hugging Is Good For Your Health But Only If You Hug Someone You Know


Are you a hugger? I am (as if you didn’t already figure that out).  Studies have proven that hugging is really good for
your health.

  • It lowers blood pressure.
  • Reduces stress
  • Helps your heart stay healthy.
  • Makes you feel good

Craig & Toni WeidmanHugging someone just before you head out the door in the morning can set you up for a great day. Touch releases two “feel-good” hormones: serotonin and dopamine. Hugs also release the “bonding” hormone oxytocin: great for babies and pets. BTW, hugging a pet works the same way. In order for these goodies to take place; the hug has to last at least 20 seconds.

We humans are a social bunch (hence the need for social media so you can say goodnight to your 2,000 friends). Studies show that children raised in orphanages with extra human interaction on a daily basis are healthier, gain more weight, and have a larger head circumference than those left on their own all day.

However, going around and hugging strangers may be detrimental to your health so only hug family, friends, and folks you know that liked to be hugged. Have you noticed that some people actually don't like to be hugged? Be aware of that and don't hug them; it can make them feel uncomfortable.

Valentine's Day is coming - what a great hugging opportunity day. I wish you lots of

candy hugs
