Huggers Gonna Hug. . .

A mutually welcomed hug has been identified as a "stress-buffering social support" in academic journals. Social supports that reduce stress keep us healthier longer. Who doesn't want that?

If you are not a hugger, consider these ways to boost your stress-buffering self:

write a letter to a friend.
call a neighbor to say hello.
spend time with a friendly pet.
share a meal with someone.

We can help build your brand awareness as a helpful, trustworthy resource and position your business as a leader in your community. And who doesn't want that?
