What can help you both build up your immune system and decrease your risk of heart disease and stress?
Hint: it’s not a pill, an exercise routine or the now ubiquitous green smoothie.
It’s the hug — that simple (and simply wonderful) one-on-one human contact between friends and loved ones.
Lucky for all of us, today is National Hug Day! The holiday was established in 1986 to encourage PDA-phobic Americans to ‘reach out, reach out and touch someone.’ So now’s your chance to get out there and improve your health, your happiness and your overall state of being.
You’ll probably freak out a few people along the way, but hey — that’s just a bonus for feeling so gosh darn happy!
(See you out there.)
