|A Hug is a Great Gift, One Size Fits All and it's Easy to Exchange|
What if you can't think of the perfect gift to give? Well - give the gift of a hug. It is a great gift, one size fits all, and it will make you (and the receiver) feel great!
Check out this video on the science of the hug:
A 10-second hug a day can lead to biochemical and physiological reactions in your body that can significantly improve your health. According to one study, this includes: Lower risk of heart disease, Stress reduction, Fight fatigue, Boost your immune system, Fight infections, and can Ease depression.
I invited my fellow members of the BNI Thumbs Up Chapter (one of the largest and most successful BNI Chapters in Upstate New York) to attempt to give away 3 hugs a day for a week. Keep track of this easy giving activity and see how it impacts you and your relationships in the next 7 days.
