A close friend of mine “Iman Ben Chaibah” once told me that, We need 4 hugs per day for survival, 8 hugs per day for maintenance and 12 hugs per day for growth.

Hugging is healthy. It helps the body’s immune system, keeps you healthier; cures depression, reduces stress, induces sleep. It has no unpleasant side effects, and hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug as I always refer to it. Hugging increases your body’s production of endorphins. And above all hugging is all natural. It’s organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, and 100% wholesome.

Your are feeling lousy and don’t really know what to do. Empty, useless and worthless. No one seems to understand this at all even yourself – they say ‘cheer up’ and ask you what the matter is. They tell you that you have everything going for you, and you shouldn’t be feeling like this. Some will comfort you and will try to tell you that what you are feeling is not true and others will tell you everything will be OK. They think you can ‘snap’ out if it but its not that simple – you wish it was. But you don’t know what the matter is, and can’t explain why you are like this. Does this sound familiar?

Count your blessings, we’re told, but it’s just not in our nature. People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they simply recognize and see more beauty in their lives.

Why do we rather count our problems?

If you’re too busy dwelling on the past or thinking about the future, you won’t be able to fully notice how fantastic things are right now. Plus, thinking about the past and future opens the door to comparison, which is the only way you can perceive something as not good enough. Enjoy today, this moment and don’t postpone your enjoyment. It’s easy to be thankful for the good things. Our life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
