The Importance of Human Touch

I don’t remember a day growing up when someone wasn’t giving me a hug; either my mom, my grandmother or a sibling. As I became a teen girlfriends filled the hug quota, then marriage, then children.

All of our life we have people hug us, hold us, kiss us, touch us…. All our life until the end. Then our spouse is gone, our children are distant and our friends have long departed. I really do feel as though human touch is medicine and when we don’t get it we die inside.

There are many things you can do to prevent this. Get a healing touch from a licensed professional, get a regular massage, hold hands with family when they visit, give lots of hugs and you will receive many.

We all need human warmth. Make it part of your aging success.
