Beat Blue Monday... with hugs!

Monday 20th January is Blue Monday, otherwise known as ‘the most depressing day of the year’ – the third Monday in January has gained this nickname thanks to a combination of bad weather, high debt and failed New Year’s resolutions.

Did you know that Blue Monday is followed by National Hug Day? So, there is definitely a way to turn this Blue Monday lark into positivity. Research shows hugging can relieve stress and keeping warm can keep you well, which is especially good during this winter season.

6 health benefits of hugging:

  • Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which can heal feelings of loneliness.
  • Hugging can lift one’s serotonin levels which can elevate a mood and create happiness.
  • Hugging relaxes muscles to relieve aches and pains.
  • Hugs can help you communicate with others as it is a comforting type of touch.
  • Hugging can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and fear.
  • Hugs may boost your heart health as it can reduce blood pressure levels and heart rate.
