Let’s Hug Day

Let’s Hug Day is here! Grab a friend or family member and show them how much you love them.

Hugging is a tradition that has existed since the time humans discovered how much fun it was to hug and wrap their arms around one another. Hugging is a way for family and friends to show affection.

It is fascinating to see that hugging is an universal way of showing affection. Although some greetings may be different depending on culture, such as the handshake, bow, or high five, the hug seems universal across all cultures.

Although it was known for years, scientific evidence has not been able to prove that humans need hugs to survive. This is especially true after babies are born. Children who are not given hugs and cuddles as babies often fail to grow and thrive in the same way that healthy, well-loved children do.

Adults can also benefit from hugging. Numerous studies have shown that hugging can not only be good for your mental and emotional health, but it can also help you to improve your physical health.

Don’t be shy – celebrate Let’s Hug Day and hug someone!

These are some great ideas to celebrate Let’s Hug Day.

The most important thing you can do on this day, is to hug someone you love. Grab a friend or family member to give them a bear hug. Call a friend to meet you for coffee and give them a big bear hug.

This day is only the beginning. It can serve as a reminder that hugs can be fun and healthy at any time of the year.

Hugs are fun and can improve a person’s overall health. Let’s Hug Day is celebrated. Here are some ways regular hugs can help children and adults both young and old.
