Hug can make a person feel safe, trusting one another and reduce the hormone cortisol because of the hormone oxytocin. Research carried out the University of North Carolina showed a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, and hugs given by people who are believed to give greater effect.
Holding hands while wrapping the fingers with a partner can be very calming, reducing anxiety, reducing stress hormone levels that flow in the body system and helps a person feel happier.
