~ National Hug Day! ~



Today is National Hug Day!  

Scientific studies have demonstrated that hugs are incredibly good for us. A hug can lower your blood pressure, trigger the release of healthy hormones (like oxytocin), and relieve stress. Doctors recommend a minimum of 4-6 hugs per day for our emotional and physiological well-being, but MORE is always better!  

So, go out there today and hug someone ~ they're free and you know you love it!
