Cuddling is good for you!
It’s been said that we ladies love a good cuddle, and let’s not forget about our guys. But why exactly do we so enjoy this activity? Many of us can’t wait to jump into our car after work and squeeze our significant other hello. Cuddling is beneficial to the health of your mind and body, and it helps to boost your immune system. So curl up, cuddle up, and love your way to a happier life.
Wrapping your arms around your love for an extended amount of time helps to boost your serotonin levels. Serotonin is that lovely little chemical that contributes to your happiness. If feeling good is as easy as that, then get those open arms ready, and love. Hugs = happiness!
Now ladies, we’ve all been through breakups. We’ve all sat there wiping our best friend’s runny nose in between those hilarious teary snorts, and ensuring that she has an ample ice cream supply! Of course, heartbreak isn’t funny, but there is a reason that we hold our friends tight when they’re going through pain. An embrace boosts your “happy chemicals” which will positively affect your mood and speed up your recovery process.
Think about those long work days, where you’ve spilled coffee on your shirt, you’re gatvol of your boss, your internet has been down, and you can’t wait to simply jump onto the couch with your boyfriend and rest your face on his chest.
You desire to do all of these things because cuddling relieves tension, stress, and has the power to soothe your aches and pains. A hug instantly boosts your self-esteem, and your body responds to the touch of another human. So, guys and girls, spread a little love today!
