The crucial components of a healthy relationship are physical and mental intimacy, which we tend to sacrifice due to our hectic schedules.
Stress and the worry of meeting deadlines affect our relationships greatly, sometimes to the extent that couples even consider parting ways. The sole agenda of national cuddle up day is to remind people that snuggling up to the loved ones is crucial to nurturing the relationship.
Cuddling up with your partner in bed isn’t a sexual activity, but it’s the purest nonverbal gesture to give them the cue that you cherish them. Hence, Jan. 6 was designated to be the national cuddle up day to commemorate this beautiful form of communication.
Apart from helping you strengthen your bond, cuddling or embracing your partner has a range of health benefits.
According to WebMD, cuddling relieves stress. When you cuddle someone, you manage to tap into the happy chemical in your body called oxytocin, which enables you to deal with stress better. Hugging someone is also said to improve your heart health, and effectively lessens physical pain of any sort.
