Everyday is a HUG-day @DES
Open up your heart … and your arms this January 21 for National Hugging Day! As you might guess, this day is an annual event dedicated to the underrated art form of the hug. We love all types of hugs, from the one-armed hug to full bear hugs; this is why @DES
there is a bench especially dedicated to hugging!
What happens when you hug someone for 20 seconds?
Studies show that a 20-second hug relieves and reduces the harmful physical effects of stress.
Why are hugs so powerful?
The act of hugging can be incredibly soothing and healing and is a physical way of confirming your presence in someone’s life. It’s why we hug when we’re sad, when we’ve got great news, and after we’ve had a stressful day.
