Cuddle Bunny

"& in the end when life has got you down, you've got someone here that you can wrap your arms around."
Everyone loves a good cuddle (unless they're sadistic and sad) but it turns up a good hug is worth more than just emotional reassurance! Because of something called the "cuddle hormone", the cuddle hormone is oxytocin, it's been linked to maternal affection & the feelings of attachment between couples. It stimulates a deeper parasympathetic nervous relaxation response, creating a sense of calm & ease. Cuddling lowers blood pressure & regulates your breathing. It's proven that children who receive sufficient affection have an overall higher IQ than children who don't. Cuddling increases feelings of safety, security, trust, self worth, belonging & appreciation.
