Why is it celebrated every January 21st?

2024 – Hug. International day Hug To express a desire to show affection to loved ones, friends or family.

The celebration was developed in the 1980s by Kevin Zaborni, a psychologist at the University of Michigan in the United States and a graduate of Boston University.

Jaborni believed that people are usually under a lot of stress and if they hug each other more often, it will help improve their physical, emotional and spiritual health.

In 1986, the psychologist hired Chase to distribute annual calendars that included National Hug Day. Years later, the date crossed the line.

Benefits of Hugging

  • Security. People are fragile by nature, especially when we are children. A good dose of hugging helps you feel safe and confident.
  • More peace of mind, less stress. Every time we hug or receive a hug, our brain releases two substances: dopamine and serotonin. Both reduce stress and provide peace, tranquility and serenity.
  • love A man needs 14 hugs a day to feel fully loved. People who don't show affection suffer from something known in psychology as skin hunger, and have nothing more than a need for human contact.
  • functional. Hugs help people focus and function happily every day.
  • Less shy. It allows shy people to gain confidence and become more open, spontaneous and confident.
  • blood pressure. People who don't have a lot of physical contact have higher heart rates and blood pressure than those who hug more often.
