Give us a Hug!

Thursday 21st is NATIONAL HUG DAY, but… spare a thought for those at home on their own. They can’t be relieved of their stress or their loneliness, have their heart warmed by the touch of loved ones. So, send them a virtual hug!

A hug beats away fatigue, lowers your blood pressure, relaxes your muscles, and shrugs off your fears. It strengthens relations, raises happier children and, yes, helps you fight infections. A man, I used to think that hugging another man was somehow unacceptable, until a friend surprised ME with a hug! I changed my outlook there and then, will carry it on where I have the chance…. even if it is digitally!
