We, as human beings are not immune to touch. Actually, we crave it. Of course, there are people who don’t need to be touched that often, but I am sure that there are times when everyone feels the need to be hugged or kissed in order to feel better.
When all words fail to heal, a simple hug can do wonders!
Here are 5 reasons why physical touch is so powerful.
1. IT IS COMFORTING
When someone hugs you, it gives you a comforting effect that you are not alone. That they are right there for you. You instantly start feeling protected and safer. You feel that everything will pass and that you will be okay again. We all need a hug and a comforting touch when we are going through difficult times in life. So, hug others anytime you can, especially if they are in distress and struggling.
2. IT SHIFTS THE ENERGY – FROM NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE
When we comfort someone by physically touching them, our touch is a powerful tool that can instantly transform the negative energy into a positive one. A small ray of positive energy is enough to help the affected person move away from the cloud of negativity that surrounds them.
3. IT HAS A HEALING EFFECT
When you are feeling stressed out or hurt, it really helps being surrounded by people you love, right? Just their presence along with their comforting words and hugs can make your pain go away, or at least minimize it.
4. IT BRINGS PEOPLE CLOSER
Just a simple kiss on the forehead can make your relationship with that person stronger. Hugging, kissing, and holding hands are important factors in every romantic relationship. It connects partners and it boosts feelings of happiness and love that will draw them to one another even more.
