Hug someone today at work and at home on National Hug Day. Research shows us that when you hug someone your stress level, blood pressure, and heart rate lowers. You also produce a bonding hormone called oxytocin. Another study shows that people who received hugs after a presentation had decreased levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
