I bet any of these puts a smile on your face. But touch does even more…
Michelangelo said to touch is to give life. Plato believed something similar. As did Hippocrates, Aristotle, the Buddha, Rene Descartes, Sigmund Freud, Charles Darwin, also the Dalai Lama.
And more than 120 research studies prove the benefits of touch.
Still, there is one benefit of touch we often overlook.
You've probably felt more emotional stress when you were apart from your significant other for more than a few days.
A research study by Carnegie Mellon University of 404 adults found that those with more touch were less likely to get sick.
Positive touch releases serotonin and oxytocin which has also been linked to immune system improvement.
Neuroscientist Edmund Rolls found that when you touch someone you activate the frontal cortex – the site of reward and compassion.
Studies show touch signals safety and trust. Basic friendly touch reduces cardiovascular stress. It releases the love hormone oxytocin.
Scientists are discovering specific neurons in the skin which process information about touch – and the immune response is right there in the skin. Which is probably why touch makes you live longer. Touch is essential for social well being.
Lack of touch is the “overlooked curse” of long distance relationships…
I can relate to life’s challenges. Because I’m with my son Eric and am working in Budapest, my husband Laci works in London.
So, how do you touch your significant other when you're apart? Hugging a pillow and the memory of his or her touch are nice, but usually fall short.
Imagine for a moment being able to physically touch when you're apart. Imagine making your long distance relationship closer, a little easier, more enjoyable and satisfying.
