Looking for a great daily give you can do anywhere? Hugs are a fabulous give and can be done virtually or in person. Yes, we are at a time where we need to be creative. Hugging in person is not recommended, but that does not mean hugging is not possible! Virtual hugging can be as much of a happiness generator as an in person hug! The intention of wanting to hug brings in the same happiness benefits as an in person hug!
Lots of research has shown that hugs bring incredible benefits to us, the planet and animals. With the current environment we are living in, our happiness and wellbeing could do with a boost!
Hugging decreases our depression and increases our wellbeing.
Hugging can lower our heart rate and blood pressure.
Hugging helps us to lower our stress and increase our happiness hormones!
This is where we get creative and find ways to give to others spontaneously while we keep ourselves safe and healthy! We can hug during times of COVID, they just aren’t hugs as we have known them to be. These virtual hugs are just as impactful and will give you and the person you are virtually hugging a nice dose of happiness!
