The average duration of a hug between two people is 3 seconds. But, the researchers discovered something fantastic!!!
When a hug lasts 20 seconds, it produces a therapeutic effect on the body and on the mind.
The reason is that a well-felt hug produces a hormone called “oxytocin”, also called the hormone of love.
This substance has many benefits for our physical and mental health, it helps us, among others to relax, to feel safe and to soothe our fears and anxiety.
This wonderful tranquilizer is offered free of charge every time we take a person in our arms, that we are rocking a child, that we caress a dog or a cat, that we dance with our partner, that we glue close to someone or that We just hold a colleague by the shoulders.
Today, take someone in your arms for 20 seconds, this is the most gift you can do and do to others!
