I wanna hold your hand

Every Monday, we give you something to have mad love and gratitude for to set your mind right for the week.

This #MAHALOMONDAY goes to more hand holding and less cell phone holding.

In our tech dominated world, people spend the majority of time holding their phones or other devices instead of interacting physically with an actual human being. Countless studies substantiate how touch offers emotional and physical health benefits that come from touch.

At a primal level, it's how we're wired to connect and communicate. We all know that the human touch triggers the release of the feel-good hormone oxytocin, a neurotransmitter that reinforces loving bonds and it can even help keep fear and anxiety at bay. Have you held a hand today?
