The average duration of an embrace between two people is three seconds. Yet the analysts have found something amazing. There is a calming effect on the body and mind when the embrace lasts 20 seconds. The explanation for this is that a sincere hug releases a hormone called “oxytocin,” also recognized as a love hormone. This substance has many advantages to our physical and mental health, it allows us to relax, to feel safe and to relieve our worries and anxieties, among other things. There is a great deal of empirical research relating to the value of embraces and physical touch.
