The Benefits of Hugging & Why We Need Them As Humans

I wanted to talk to you about something I’ve been thinking about a lot, and that’s closeness. 

We humans are used to living together in large numbers. We’re like herd animals. We feel best when we’re together and offer support to one another. 

Our bodies, minds, and hearts need that closeness.

During and even before Covid, we’ve been very touch deprived. We’re in a technology age and we’re not as close as we used to be. We don’t hug, touch, or connect physically as often or with as many people as we used to. This impacts our health, stress levels, blood pressure, our heart rate, and so much more. 

All of these things are improved when we have a hug. A hug that lasts over 20 seconds can literally decrease your blood pressure and heart rate in that moment, and consistently through the day.  There is even some research that shows hugging daily improves our immunity and our resilience in the face of infectious illnesses.  

One thing I’ve noticed in particular is how fearful people are now. We’re not only touch deprived, but we’re afraid to touch. All of the things that once comforted us we’re now afraid of. We shouldn’t be afraid of one another. It is impacting our health. 

We deserve to be happy and comforted again. 

I suggest people start comforting and hugging one another again. I suggest we focus on not being afraid of one another. 

It’s really important that we remain human. It’s important that we remember who we are.
