Hug & Hold

The pandemic has criminalized hugs but not our need for them. When we hug, we release oxytocin, a hormone that helps us bond with others. Bonding is important—it’s like a glue that can keep you intact when you’re about to crumble. But if you’re alone, best grab for a pillow.


 Hugs strengthen the immune system [Oxytocin helps reduce blood pressure and stress hormones].The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.”

    I have a big pink teddybear. Her name is Dot, she comes from Minsk and she is 27 years old. When there is nothing and no-one to comfort me, I take Dot to bed with me and I hug her and she comforts me every time.
