If you need a hug, ask for one. Don’t assume others can read your mind and should simply know how you feel. Sharing a hug is an exchange of healing energy, compassion and can give someone a lift when they’re feeling down. It’s also a sign of honor and appreciation. If you have received a great gift or service, don’t be afraid to say thanks with a hug. You may make someone’s day.
Remember when you give a hug, you’re getting one back. The importance of human touch has been documented for decades, maybe even centuries. We all need some form of human contact to maintain mental health and stability. And on some level, physical health as well.
Sharing a hug with someone who seems down or is struggling with challenges in life can let them know they’re not alone. While you may not be able to solve their problems, you can give them a place to look toward for advice or even simply a person who will listen and let them blow off steam.
When someone does something really nice for you, a hug can let them know you value their gift and you’re honored by their thoughts of or for you. It may not be something you can do with everyone. Some work situations may not be appropriate or could cause issues. But you can ‘give a hug’ with words and say how much you appreciate what they have done for you.
Show others that you value their friendship and consideration. Give a hug today.
