hug it out

yesterday i was feeling a little down. you know those days when all you want is a big hug?? for someone to sit down and talk to you, or just listen, or just be there. well i mentioned on facebook that i needed a hug, and the virtual hugging began...not quite the same as a big in-person bear hug, but it left me feeling warm and fuzzy nonetheless.


 



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, 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.
"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.

xoxo

I am such a closet hug person. If I love you, then hug away, but I don't like to be hugged by people I don't love. I know, I'm picky. A hug's a hug :)
