Why #Hugs Spike Our #Happiness

Ever wonder why the saying “hug it out” has staying power? This story explains how hug make us happy. This isn’t something you can sell in pill form. The happiness from a hug  comes from within – it’s as organic as the human body can process.

Regardless of age or gender, when a conflict is followed by a hug – people feel better about the event. When we have less negativity lingering about an inter-personal snafu, we are less likely to shy away from said person.

The same news, reported from a different source found that hugging helps to alleviate stress, which effectively boosts immunity. This keeps us happier, healthier and more resilient to sickness. It’s a win-win for all.

The psychology of a hug is quite telling. Although this article doesn’t go into details, of course I went looking for them. Starting at birth, mothers hug their newborns. As we grow-up, hugs make us feel better. A hug is a symbol of acceptance, it releases dopamine into the brain.

So what a hug means, in a universally understood body language is I accept you. Who doesn’t want to be accepted?
