Hugs and Cuddling is Good for You!

Do you like to cuddle but your partner doesn’t? Here are some health benefits to convince them that there’s more to cuddling than meets the eye.

Cuddling releases Oxytocin, which is also known as the feel good hormone. This creates a sense of well-being and happiness. When you cuddle it can also release endorphins. This is the chemical that is released after a good workout, which contributes to that great feeling. There is also a release of dopamine, which is an excitatory hormone that increases sexual desire.

Hugging and kissing, or more physical acts of touch increases Oxytocin levels, which is also a bonding hormone. having this chemical reaction can help to reduce blood pressure, the risk of heart disease, stress and anxiety.

Cuddling helps you communicate better. Non-verbal communication can be a very powerful way to say to your partner, “I get you.” Cuddling is a way of saying “I know how you feel.” It allows us to feel known by our partner in ways our words can’t describe.

In fact, we’re born to cuddle and our bodies crave it. Cuddling  produces lifelong benefits for your child. Children who have been deprived of physical contact as babies have lower levels of social-bonding hormones. Research also shows massaging newborns helps with their growth and development. So start to smother your “little bundle of joy” with hugs and cuddles!
