Ha, ha… if you were an Entourage follower – you’d be smilin’ right now.
I was reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin today and though I’m not a huge fan of the book, I did gain some insights as great take-aways, including this interesting tid-bit.
Gretchen writes that in her research she discovered that when we hug it takes at least 6 seconds to promote the flow of oxytocin and serotonin, the mood boosting chemicals that promote bonding.
So you don’t need to count the next time you give or get a hug, but if you are really in the moment, you’ll feel when it’s been at least 6 seconds.
Wishing you a happy, beautiful, amazing week!
