Hugs…One Size Fits All

Did you know that today, January 21, 2015 is National Hugging Day? Kevin Zaborney  is the master mind behind the idea of setting  a day for hugging in 1986. Zaborney felt that most Americans were embarrassed to show their feelings in public and his hope was that creating a National Hugging Day would change that.

I, for one, am glad someone thought of something so simple yet so brilliant. Human contact is essential in life and what better way to communicate through a hug.

Hugs…. nurture, builds trust, are an instant mood changer, boosts self-esteem, relaxes muscles, teaches kindness through giving and receiving, encourages empathy and understanding….Hugs are a universal language. Everyone needs a hug! Everyone deserves a hug. Hugs promote love and the world could use a little more love.

A big “Thank You” and “Hug” goes out to Kevin Zaborney for taking the time and effort to make hugs a special day on the calendar for all to share. GIVE A HUG! GET A HUG!
