Cuddling Up

"If you need extra encouragement to snuggle up to your sweetie, mark
your calendar. January 6 is Cuddle Up Day, and there's ample reason
to join in the celebration. Sharing a hug and holding hands can actually
blunt the harmful physical effects of stress, such as a soaring heart
rate and elevated blood pressure, according to a study published in
Behavioral Medicine. And don't worry that your guy seems too brawny to
get mushy- surprising new research from the Kinsey Institute found that
men crave cuddling even more than women do."
