Did you know that… when you give or receive a hug, you increase the production of the ‘bonding’ hormone called oxytocin?
A good hug every morning may help your child deal with stress all day at school.
A hug will not only increase the production of the ‘bonding’ hormone but it will also decrease the stress hormone called cortisol.
Hugging has been found to:
- be good for your heart
- decrease blood pressure
- decrease heart rate
- reduce stress
- improve mood
- and, improve relationships!
So go on… give your child a big BEAR HUG!
Actually… give everyone you love a hug!
