We got this new dry erase/magnet board and Rowdy has been so excited to put it up as a place to write our goals/lists/motivational quotes, etc. The first day I noticed that one said, "Hug Carrie 6x a day." I laughed at it at the time--but holy cow people the guy is serious. I haven't been hugged this much since college when I told everyone that a person needs 10 hugs a day to function properly. And so I went around hugging people. 'Cuz that's just what you do in college.
But truly, this simple little goal of his has affected me more than I could have imagined. It's not that we never hug-- it's simply the deliberate consistency of this intimate moment that is somehow making a huge impact on my day. I'm just plain nicer. So I decided to do a little research on the subject.
-Here is how a study showed that hug a day could save your life.
-We should all print this out!
-There is a national hug day!
-And in case you don't know how, here are the instructions on how to hug;)
And I love this video. Makes me all hug happy.
