Health Benefits of a cuddle

According to family therapist Virginia Satir, cuddling is essential to health, even to survival.

Cuddles have been linked to a variety of health benefits including lowered blood pressure, better overall mood, even to higher IQ in children who recieve sufficient hugs.

Physical benefits are not the only things passed on in a hug. Hugs also help people to bond on an emotional level. Hugs increase feelings of safety, security, trust, strength, healing, self worth, belonging, happiness, and appreciation.

So remember to cuddle and hug your Grandkids, It’s good for you and them
