Have a cuddle

Have you ever wondered how good you feel after someone gives you a cuddle?The power of a cuddle is one of, if not the most important, actions we could take or give to each other. Why? I hear you ask. When we give each other a cuddle amazing things happen right under our skin.Under the skin there are hundreds of nerve senses. When touch happens these nerve senses send messages to our brains,which in turn releases a chemical called oxytocin which is a hormone. When our bodies are flooded with this hormone amazing things happen. We feel really good, our blood pressure reduces and we feel the love. Also, when expectant mothers are ready to give birth oxytocin is released, which in turn helps with the labour process and this is a how bonding with their new born baby happens. I wonder if there is anyone you could give a cuddle to today and feel the love and security of a cuddle? No matter how young or old you are, we all need a cuddle from time to time.
