You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.
A hug is one of the most basic ways humans touch. A positive exchange of energy, a hug creates a connection that cannot be expressed in words.
- We have ‘hello’ hugs and ‘goodbye’ hugs.
- We celebrate with a “congratulations!” hug.
- Hugs show appreciation and support.
- Hugs make us feel safe, secure and loved.
- They can lift our spirits and make us smile.
- Hugs can help us heal, break down barriers and allow us to feel understood with no exchange of words.
Hugs are powerful.
Are you thinking about the hugs you give and receive?
Hug! Hug! Hug! Mmmmmm…..Doesn’t that feel good?
Hugs are just as important for adults as they are for children.
How to Hug (Really!)
Hugs don’t need new equipment, special batteries or parts – just open up your arms and open up your hearts. ~Jill Wolf
Some people are born huggers. They know how, when and who to hug. But if you need a few tips in the hugging department, learning to hug isn’t rocket science. In fact, hugs are fun to practice and are almost always appreciated.
- Make eye contact
- Wrap your arms around them
- Give a good squeeze
Oh I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time. ~Drew Barrymore
Get out there…use those arms to wrap the ones you love in big bear hugs!
Hugs to you!
