International Cuddle Day... can we still do this?


Thursday 21/01/2021... International cuddly day...

May this still be celebrated because in the current corona conditions you should not do it...

In our one-and-a-half meter society, cuddling occurs less and less.. when you used to give a hug when you meet a friend or acquaintance again, now you usually keep your distance... Even during a sporting victory or a sad moment it is nowadays out of the question...

In the Western world, cuddling was already a thing, but now it seems threatened with extinction. However, we know that cuddly toys are needed and therefore we put in the cuddly contact... without hugs we unfortunately can not live that was even scientifically proven...

Through a well-meant hug, a lot of reactions in your body are triggered that benefit your health...

So hugging inside your bubble is still of great importance...

What happens in your body is pure chemistry while cuddling

  • Your stuffed hormone oxytocin increases and makes you feel happier and more connected.
  • Your trust gets a boost which also benefits your self-confidence, making you a happier person.
  • By lowering the hormone cortisol, your stress hormone drops and you become calmer.
  • Your blood pressure also goes down for which your heart is grateful.
  • Serotonin and dopamine will make you less cranky.

  • And your patience is also great, quietly enjoying a cuddle moment lets you forget your hectic day.
  • The blood circulation of your skin is better by a hug and this ensures that you will shine and even get fewer wrinkles.
  • After a firm hug you will feel less anxious and restless.
  • Even pain and depression can be alleviated by a heartfelt hug.

Some remarkable scientific facts:

  • Due to a shortage of hugs, the growth process of children is slower.
  • Recovering from a disease is slower with a shortage of hugs.


And even the animals know it.. cuddling has a healing effect... Both physically and emotionally, it makes you more balanced psychologically, making you more emotionally stable and this results in better physical health.

A window hug and virtual hug are now the new hugs but if they have the same effect I doubt... So grab your bubble hug firmly and hug him/her completely flat...
