Hug me please

Hug me please

According to research from the University of Vienna recently, there are some benefit of simple activity called hug. Hugging someone you love releases the hormone oxytocin that gives you a physical boost. The hormone oxytocin was released into the blood stream when you are hugging. This activity reduces anxiety and can even improve your memory.

However, they added, this effect does only work if you hug someone you trust. So, don’t try to hug everyone at the street randomly. That is, beside culturally wrong, you won’t gain any benefit from it. Embracing someone stranger increases stress

So, look someone you love around you. Give her a nice, long hug.
