When we are stressed out, a touch on our hand, a gentle hug or holding hands can help ease the strain, both physically and mentally. Our skin also gets more sensitive when cortisol is rushing through our bloodstream as our neve endings are on high alert, so the touch of a helping hand will have a significantly larger impact.
Did you know that the largest concentration of nerve endings is actually contained inside the hands and fingertips.
So next time you are feeling a little lost, lonely or just need a little more comfort, reach for your partners hand or ask them for a cuddle. Better still don't ask, just reach out for them and touch them. They might be feeling the same as you so you will both be getting the happy hormones making you both feel loved, calm and connected.
