Gimme a hug!

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - WELL BEING -

A study of 404 adults over 14 days found hugs may be a simple yet ef­fec­tive method of re­duc­ing stress af­ter an ar­gu­ment. Post-ar­gu­ment hug­gers were more likely to feel pos­i­tive af­ter the con­flict than those who didn’t hug. It seems an ob­vi­ous con­clu­sion but it’s an im­por­tant part of re­search into how in­ter­per­sonal touch sup­ports a healthy re­la­tion­ship and eas­ier con­flict res­o­lu­tion.
