10 Essential Hugs of Life
National Hug Your Sweetheart Day
-- A great day to express your love and affection to your sweetheart. Did you know full-body hugs can lower your stress and feelings of loneliness, and increase self-esteem? Hugs also can also help lower your blood pressure. 20 Different Types Of Hugs Ranked (And Their Meanings)

Read: The 10 Essential Hugs of Life, by Roy Spence
-- In the 10 Essential Hugs of Life, Roy Spence shares the inspiring lessons he learned from practicing what his dad taught him -- anyone worth meeting is worth hugging -- with the hope, that others will take up the call to put a little more joy in the lives of those we touch, including our own. We simply need to hug ourselves first, our friends and family, our fears and failures, our firsts, our futures, and our finals. When we embrace all of the people and events that make us who we are, we discover deep wells of love.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
