Today is such a great day… No not because it is the weekend… because it is National Cuddle Up Day!!
January is typically a month that generates some of the coldest days of the year, especially if you grew up on the east coast or still live in winter weather areas so what better way to stay warm and reap the health benefits of cuddling with your sweetie on National Cuddle Up Day!!
Cuddling releases oxytocin. This hormone alone has tremendous health benefits. Besides giving us warm and fuzzy feelings, oxytocin reduces pain. So when the cold has made those muscles and joints ache, cuddling can help reduce those aches and pains. Cuddling would probably be covered by health insurance it’s such a huge health benefit!
