Dear hugs: I miss you. Do you miss me?

Hugs help to strengthen our relationships.

They help us check-in with each other, feel what the other is feeling.

Hugs keep us sane.

There is something so incredibly comforting when you hug a loved one.

It’s warm, inviting, all-healing.

It can make you feel appreciated, loved,

understood.

A hug can envelop a sense of calmness over you.

It can make you forget all of your troubles.

It can make time,

stop.

A hug can stop the tears from flowing. A hug can help show feelings you can’t quite put into words.

Hugs can make you feel cherished.

Hugs can reduce levels of stress and anxiety. Hugs keep us healthy.

Hugs can soothe our souls.

A friendly reminder to hug responsibly in these unprecedented times:

  • Don’t hug a person showing signs of Covid-19
  • Don’t hug a person who is at a higher risk for Covid-19
  • Wear a mask
  • Avoid making skin-to-skin contact
  • Wash and sanitize your hands before and after
  • Inspired by the lovely Agnes Louis
