Let's Hug Day on Sunday, December 3.
Let's Hug Day was founded in 2006 as a way for people around the world to show their appreciation and love for each other.
There is no better gift than a Hug, but make sure you get permission before you go in for one... In these sensitive times, we need to be respectful of how others take our gifts. Consensual hugs are the best.
Hugs are good for the soul, heart, mental and emotional well-being. They can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression when accepted. They can increase serotonin and oxytocin release and make people feel happier. Hugs heal.
Hugs can show support and comfort to someone and remind them that they are loved and appreciated.
Hugging helps increase feelings of trust, love, friendship, empathy, and affection.
Hugging regularly is a good way to foster friendships and build stronger relationships. Hugging your pets is always a good idea.
I like to shoot for 10 hugs a day, It is healthy and fun. Be a good hugger, you won't regret it.
Take the time to hug your friends, family members, or even strangers on Let’s Hug Day!
