It may sound quite funny, that a warm hug could bring down your stress levels and increase the immunity of your body. A cuddly teddy gives comfort to a crying child. A mother’s voice soothes the crying baby. It seems that we humans are naturally wired to spread tenderness around us.

Stress

Stress, as you know, may play a part in headaches, heart problems, high blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, skin conditions, anxiety, depression, and arthritis. You step into any doctor’s cabin and the first thing you hear is reduce your stress levels and relax.

Researchers found that greater social support and frequent hugs  protected people from the increased susceptibility to infection associated with being stressed and resulted in less severe illness symptoms.

The study results suggest that by receiving a hug from a trusted person is an effective means of conveying support and it reduces the harmful effects of stress.

A warm hug increases the levels of oxytocin in the brain. This hormone boosts happiness improves communication skills and everyday relationships, builds immunity and drives away anxiety and stress. The increase in oxytocin washes away the stress making cortisol and improves your wellness quotient.

Giving and sharing reduces stress levels and greatly boosts your happiness. Gymboree has come up with an amazing collection of newborn gifts.
