If you are feeling down in the dumps? The answer is : get a hug. Says a new Canadian study.
After analysing data from the 2007 Canadian Community Health Survey, researchers found that people who get hugs regularly are more likely to report better mental health.
According to the study, for people who either benefit from affection or lack it, there are substantial differences in their mental behavior, mental growth and mental development.
The Globe and Mail had quoted Jack Jedwab the executive director of the Montreal-based Association of Canadians Studies. According to Jedwab, the study’s findings make sense because affection has a clear link to being part of a healthy, loving community.
So guys, lets start hugging as hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. Jokes aside guys, remember, enough studies have been conducted to conclusively prove that human touch heals and increases one’s life span. Not only that, we also know that human touch is also essential for human growth and development.
Anyway, hugging is healthy, for the body and the soul. Hugging reaches inside and touches our soul.The world may heal a bit if hugging increases, so do your bit guys. Get your body into action and start hugging guys.
And remember the famous hug of death by Najib Tun Razak? Najib became Prime Minister after this hug of death he gave our Pak Lah.
