MIDWEEK MANTRA

Just a Picture To Inspire You On This Cold January Morning

POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND INSPIRATION TO GET YOU THROUGH THIS COLD JANUARY WEEK. IM HERE JUST WHEN YOU NEED ME. DONT FORGET THERE ARE MANY MORE MANTRAS ON THIS BLOG TO DIP INTO WHENEVER YOU NEED STRENGTH AND HOPE .

HOW ABOUT A HUG ?

I HEARD AN INTERESTING STATEMENT TODAY. HUGGING RELEASES DOPAMINE AND CAN INCREASE THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH OF THE ‘HUGGER’ AND ‘HUGGEE’ IN A HUGELY POWERFUL WAY. IMAGINE HAVING ALL THAT POWER IN YOUR ARMS TO CHANGE THE LIFE OF SOMEONE (AND YOURSELF) IN SUCH A DRAMATIC WAY………AND SO EASY TO DO ! HUGGING CAN RELIEVE STRESS AND ANXIETY AND BRING DOWN BLOOD PRESSURE. LOWER DEPRESSION AND REDUCE FEELINGS OF LONELINESS.

PLEASE HUG YOUR CHILDREN ON A DAILY BASIS (EVEN HOURLY) IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH AS THEY DEVELOP AND IT HELPS TO CREATE A STRONG BOND. A HUGGED CHILD IS A HAPPY CHILD. VERY OFTEN IN THIS TIME VALUABLE OVER STRESSED TIMES AS A PARENT IT IS VERY EASILY OVERLOOKED. MAKE TIME. WHEN A CHILD HAS A TEMPER TANTRUM INSTEAD OF SHOUTING AT THEM JUST HUG THEM AND HOLD THEM CLOSE. IT WORKS , I PROMISE YOU.

SO TODAY I WANT YOU TO HUG AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE FOR AT LEAST 20 SECONDS BUT MAKE IT A MEANINGFUL HEARTFELT HUG. A WORD OF WARNING IF YOU ARE HUGGING A STRANGER OR SOMEONE YOU FEEL NEEDS IT BUT YOU DONT KNOW THEM WELL , PLEASE ASK THEIR PERMISSION FIRST. NOTE HOW WELL THIS MAKES YOU FEEL TOO IT IS MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL.

JOJOS STYLIST TIP: EVERYONE FEELS BETTER WITH A HUG ALL HUMANS THRIVE ON TOUCH AND INTIMACY UNLESS OF COURSE YOU ARE JANET STREET PORTER WHO NOTORIOUSLY HATES IT ! BUT HEY LOOK HOW GRUMPY SHE IS ! LOVE YOU THOUGH JANET XX

MWAH MWAH
