then today i came across this:
Next time someone you know acts a little stressed out, give 'em a hug."like a snuggie for your insides." i couldn't have said it better myself. here's a big hug for all of you! hope you have a fabulous weekend.
Like a Snuggie for your insides, hugs are linked to warm, fuzzy feelings. Even better, those good feelings translate into lower heart rate and blood pressure. Studies show a hug from a loving partner dampens stress in people both before and after a difficult time.
