A hug is a simple gesture, but it has the potential to express more than casual affection. I talk about the broader applications of hugs in the latest Mental Health site article:
"The Healing Power of Hugs"
Hugs have a warm, fuzzy reputation. But they have a serious and powerful side, too. A well-placed hug can defuse strong emotions, bridge differences, and remind us that we are alive and valuable.
I appreciate and rely on your feedback, so feel free to email me any time. And please pass this message along to family and friends who might benefit from the resources at BellaOnline. Thanks!
