Friday January 6, 2017 is Cuddle Up Day.

“Winter has the coldest days of the year so there’s many ways to stay warm. There are multiple benefits to cuddling with people, canines, and other pets.

Cuddling releases oxytocin. This hormone alone has huge health benefits. Besides giving us warm and fuzzy feelings, oxytocin reduces pain. So when the cold has made those muscles and joints ache, cuddling can help reduce those aches and pains. Oxytocin also helps reduce heart disease, reduces blood pressure, stress, and anxiety. If it weren’t free, cuddling would probably be covered by health insurance because it’s such a huge health benefit! Physical touch can communicate trust, commitment, safety, and reassurance. This goes for human to human contact as well has human to pet contact. Cuddling can also boost sexual desire. Dopamine is released stimulating the brain to seek pleasure.

But dopamine also can improve memory and focus as well. Cuddling also helps a mother better bond with her infant or toddler children. It also enables sleep, even when the mother might have difficulty sleeping with a newborn in the house. Cuddling can actually help with social anxiety which helps you have a positive outlook on the world. Cuddling doesn’t even have to be between you and your romantic partner. Don’t have someone to cuddle up with? Make an appointment for a massage. Studies show massage provides similar benefits. You can also go and hug your friends or play with your pets. If you don’t want to be so social or don’t have a furry friends, never fear friend! You can rub your own shoulders, take a warm bath or of course, get a massage.

To celebrate, all we would have to do is go out, socialize with our friends, or hug our family. Play with our pets, cuddle up by the fire with our significant other, or listen to music.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/qAE58
