Touch: One of the most important and life affirming actions we can take, every day. And simultaneously, one of the most important things we can give and receive each day.
How many times did you experience touch today? One? Three? Ten times? (Hint: If you feel great, it was probably enough.)
When was the last time you held someone's hand?
When was the last time you touched someone without fear, anxiety or doubt? When was the last time you felt the warmth of someone else's touch without guilt, shame, regret, despair or another negative emotion?
If you've gone longer than one week or even one day without healthy, healing touch, it's time to change that and start THRIVING.
Do you need a hug?
Why not give your Self a big hug? Embracing your Self physically is a great start toward getting and giving regular gifts of healing touch.
Touch is one of the most important elements we all need to help us THRIVE, an act that involves far more than mere survival.
BTW, touch does not have to be sexual to be healing and effective. =)
I want one of these: The Hug Chair!
Even if you live alone, you can always give your Self a big hug!
Here's an alternative challenge: Give the gift of touch by giving out free hugs!
(Side benefit of giving free hugs: You rock your confidence muscle each time! Please practice this choice responsibly; set and state your boundaries clearly; and always remain in a busy, well-lit, public space.)
Even if the only touch you can manage today is to shake your own hand or give your Self a scalp massage, give it a try. I am sure it will make you smile.
