Hugging provides health benefits?
It can lower blood pressure and improve memory loss?
Bring that baby back, I need to improve my memory! We were thrilled to have our newest grandchild living less than one hour away, but who knew she’d be providing us with major health benefits as well?
Great news for grandparents, studies are proving that the simple act of hugging someone you know can help reduce stress, fear and anxiety, have a lowering effect on blood pressure, promote wellbeing and improve memory performance (SERIOUS issues for Boomers). These positive effects are caused by the secretion of the peptide oxytocin. The great news is that not only are the huggers benefitting, but the huggees are too!
