“We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.” – Virginia Satir

Get and give 12 hugs a day!

Hugs are good for us physiologically. They raise our oxytocin and serotonin levels. 

Hugs are also good for us emotionally. They make us feel loved.

12 hugs might be your ‘reach’ goal. If that seems like a lot you can just work on more than yesterday. We have to remember to make time for physical connection. With our busy lives, it’s easy to forget to stop and connect.

Challenge your children to 12 hugs a day. They love to keep count. Don’t forget your partner if you have one. 

Pro tip: Don’t let go first.
