Make Happiness Happen #002




When was the last time you were touched? Ok! Get all the giggles out of the way!! 
I’m serious. When was the last time you were touched? When was the last time you touched someone? 
It could be a hand on the arm when you’re laughing hysterically, or a hug when you get picked up at the airport, or like with this beautiful pair of human beings right here, it could be a fun and unexpected tickle that incites laughter and 🌟PURE JOY🌟 that ends up being a HUGE piece of wall art in your home because it reminds you of what matters most in your life even when times are tough. 
Doctors found that a single touch hand to hand instantly and dramatically decreased the activity in areas of the brain that cause fear, danger, and threat. WOW 🤯 It’s real!!

Touch can cure sadness and fear. It can make us instantly happier and feel at ease. 

I don’t know about you, but this is a great reminder for me to give Rich a hug today- even if we are having a difficult conversation- and for me to gently touch Forrest’s back when he’s having a hard time dealing with a situation (in non hippy language: a tantrum). 


Are you giggles out of the way? Because I’m about to ask you a question and ask you to leave your answer for me in the comments. 
Tell me, who comes to your mind that you want to help today with a simple touch? Who could use less fear and sadness? Who do you know that could use some happiness? Write the name of the person you want to share Happiness with today 💗

Touch comes before sight, before speech.
It is the first language, and the last, and it always tells the truth.
— Margaret Atwood
