Reaction = Pattern 

Responding = Freedom

Did you know? AWARE is Helping Humans HEAL

20-Seconds Hug

When you receive a hug, your brain releases a chemical called oxytocin. This chemical is proven to reduce inflammation in the body, slow your heart rate, lower your blood pressure, and improve your mood.

Hugging for longer than 20 seconds gives your body enough time for your brain to release this chemical. The more often your brain releases this chemical and practices using it, the easier it'll be to handle stress in the future.

"Best Night Ever!!!"

Jen

"I can't even explain the joy I get when someone holds their arms out for a "FREE HUG". I wear my shirt and people on the street stop me for a free hug and we both walk away smiling. What's better than that?"
