The Free Treatment for All Troubles

There is an easy-to-administer, highly effective way to inculcate several positive traits in children as they grow up. In fact, this simple treatment, if administered regularly, can help children to grow up to be smarter, healthier, happier, and more resilient. It can develop self-confidence, reduce anxiety and stress, improve risk-taking ability, improve collaborative skills, and even build better immunity. By now, I am sure you are willing to pay serious money to get this treatment. Well, you don’t need to. I am talking of a simple hug. Many hugs actually. 

Yes, hugs, especially from the parent, can have remarkably positive effects on children.

It improves their cognitive development. Studies from orphanages show that children who aren’t touched or held much grow up with impaired cognitive abilities. On the other hand, children who received regular gentle hugs or touch developed better cognitive skills. 

It helps in growth. Hugs release a hormone called oxytocin. One of the effects of oxytocin is to enhance physical growth.

Reduces anxiety and stress. Cortisol is called the stress hormone. Hugs can actually combat cortisol and this in turn reduces stress and anxiety. 

Improves immunity. The reduction in stress has an additional benefit. Stress impacts the body’s immune function negatively. This opens up the body to more infections. Reduction of stress ensures that the immune system function isn’t impaired. This is why hugs can improve immunity.

Increases resilience and happiness. The same oxytocin can help improve optimism as well as self-belief. These are two essential ingredients of resilience and happiness. So the more you hug your children, the happier and more resilient they become. 

Hugs help in raising children who feel secure and supported. Paradoxically, it is people who feel secure who are willing to take risks in life, such as trying out new ways of doing things or treading an untrodden path. Thus hugs can improve risk-taking ability and innovation. 

So what are you waiting for?? Grab your kids and hug them. Be they 1 year old or 21 years old.
