The Importance of Touch

Have you ever noticed that we touch for comfort?  It’s true.  If there’s an ache or pain somewhere in your body, you’re pretty much guaranteed to place your hand on it at some point.  If you happen to see someone who looks a little down, you might pat him on the arm or shoulder and ask “Are you okay?”  And we all enjoy a good hug from someone we care about.

In a 2015 Time magazine article, Eric Barker writes:

Touching is incredibly powerful.  We just don't give it enough credit.  It makes you more persuasive, increases team performance . . . it even boosts math skills.  Touching someone you love actually reduces pain.

Now, depending on where you are, it might not be appropriate to go around touching people, but if you’re having a difficult day, you can hug your loved ones when you get home.  And non-human loved ones definitely count.  If you enjoy massages, make it more of a priority to get them regularly.  Massage is very healing.  It moves lymph fluid through your system which releases toxins, it reduces soreness and stiffness, and it increases agility.  If you live alone or don’t have a massage therapist, try applying lotion to your hands in a slow, deliberate, mindful manner.  If you feel so inclined, apply it to your whole body.  Even doing something as small and simple as that can help to boost your mood.
