Hello, my friends, Peggy Moore here with the Discover Your Personal Power Podcast. It is June 24th, 2020 and it has been a crazy year, am I right? I don’t know about you guys, but I have really struggled with the quarantine situation. Staying at home, not being able to gather with my friends. It has been very isolating. Chatting via zoom or google meets just hasn’t been enough. And hugging - I miss hugging. I am a hugger. I spent years trying to conform to the social norm of not hugging, but as I have learned to become more confident in my own space and authentic, I found I am a hugger.
Did you know that hugs can boost the immune system? They can help lower the risk of heart disease and they produce the happy chemical oxytocin, the connection, and bonding chemical in the brain. Hugs are good for you.
