A Hug is a Gourmet Meal

July 31, 2006

Research tells us that the offspring of wild animals will die if their mother doesn’t lick, cuddle, and play with them. Yes, even the mighty lioness must stroke her cubs, or they die. Have you ever watched how affectionate primates are? They can sit and groom each other for hours on end. It’s the touching of each other that gives the contentment.


The skin is our biggest organ. It’s just loaded with nerve endings to convey the sense of touch to us. Even the slightest breeze causes a reaction. Human babies have the same needs as wild animals. If they are never touched, we have what is referred to as “skin hunger”.


We must keep reaching out to friends and be open to hugs.


Hugging assures my emotional well-being.
