Find Somebody to Hug!
Having a stressful Monday? Go find somebody to HUG!
Here’s a Pawsitive Pondering reboot from last year, but it bears repeating. Also, for those of you waiting for Love to Believe to be available in print, it is! Just click on the book cover:
Hugging releases oxytocin, the “cuddling” hormone (I’m not making that up!), and reduces our blood pressure, helps reduce existential fears, and increases our compassion. Hugging reduces cortisol, the “stress” hormone, thereby reducing tension and sending the message to our brains to chill out. Purrfect advice for a Monday, Buttercup!
