Its officially #HugDay today!
Did you know that a hug can boost your oxytocin levels which can heal feelings of loneliness and anger. An extended hug can also increase your serotonin levels which will improve your mood and feelings of happiness!
Hugging also helps to reduce stress levels. Hugs effect our nervous system, releasing tension from the muscles and reducing the amount of Cortisol (a stress hormone) being produced by the body.[image: weheartit]
