We need four hugs a day for survival.
We need eight hugs a day for maintenance.
We need twelve hugs a day for growth.
Virginia Satir was an internationally acclaimed therapist. She knew a lot about what people need to be healthy and happy and to live in good relationships with each other. She was very smart, and most of her advice was pretty simple.
Take hugs, for example. What could be more simple? One person reaching out to touch another person with safety and care. Very simple.
But what do hugs give people?
Comfort. Acceptance. The basics we all need no matter where we are at today.
So, let us all remember to Give Hugs today!
