Hugging reduce stress and reinforce self-esteem. Some people hug you so hard that it feels like you’re going to break, but it’s just the way they express their love. Hugs create a special link between the mind, body and emotions.
Hugging may not solve anything, but they’re comforting. When someone wraps their arms around us, it can rebuild the parts of us that have been broken by time, ward off loneliness and fears, and fill us with happiness.
As incredible as it may seem, there are some people who don’t like to be hugged because they feel uncomfortable or like their personal space is being invaded. However, in reality, everyone needs someone to warmly embrace them at some point or another in their lives.
“A small hug can dry tears, a small word of kindness can fill us with happiness and a little smile can change the world. These are the little things that fill our world with happiness and love…”

- Reduce stress.
- Provide security and protection, or at least make us feel safe and secure.
- Help self-esteem.
- Transmit energy and strength.

Hugs, a caress from the soul
“It’s said that every time we hug someone warmly, we gain a day of life.” Paulo Coelho
Hugging deepens the roots of affection. Our most meaningful memories contain hugs because they are comforting. Hugging is a wonderful way to give love to those around us and caress their souls.
Hugs are often the best therapy as they make us feel renewed and deserving of love. Each hug has its own language which makes it the quickest way for two souls to communicate.
That means you can say more with a hug than words. Embracing each other fills us with happiness and transmits a certain peacefulness that’s immensely relaxing.
Hugs are a truly reliable source of empathic communication that enables us to better understand how we and those around us feel. They’re a great way to show our love and support.
