When we read the word HUGS it with always remind us of something beautiful in our own life's. It's because of our bringing up and cultural that we don't simply hug anyone we like. But remember to give your love one's a hug, it could be your spouse, parents or children. Hugging is good medicine. It transfers energy, and gives the person hugged an emotional boost. Parents like to hugs their children when the children are small. Usually in the age ranging from 1-6 years old. As our children begin to grow older they doesn't want to be hug any more. This due to the fact that they are shy and the cultural that is with in us. Maybe I am wrong in this aspect but I experienced this as my children began to grow older from young children to young teenages, they do not want to be hug. Sometimes I have to ask my daughter or son to give me a hug, this is not like when they were small we can pick them up giving them hugs anytime and anywhere.
Hugging can be very emotional for most people if it's a hug given by your love one, especially from children to parents. You can go back and try it out and you will know the feeling. Now a days I feel that children don't give that much hugs to their parents as they should. Is this because of our cultural? Hugs are only given on special occasion only like going away for a trip, birthdays, etc. These hugs are happy and emotional hugs. A hug makes you feel good. A hug can cover a lot of skin and gives the message that you care. It is also a form of communication. It can say things you don't have words for. So start hugging your love one's today.
It is said that hugs can relieve pain and depression.. make the healthier happier, and the most secure even more so.. Hugging feels good and overcomes fear... Hugging makes happy days happier and impossible days possible.
The Rescuing Hug
This is a picture from an article I read called, "The Rescuing Hug." The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently, each were in their respective incubators, and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal.
They both survived, and are thriving! In fact, now that the two girls are home, they still sleep together, and still snuggle. The hospital changed their policy after they saw the effect of putting the two girls together, and now they bed multiples together.
If you looks as though you've had a rough day. Feeling blue, lousy, lonely? Then go home and get or give a hug. Relax and let the *HUGS* smoothe away your tiredness and bring back your smile. Have you hug someone today? Maybe you should try by hugging your parents. Cheers to hugging!!!
