What happens when you hug someone for 20 seconds? During a hug, we release oxytocin, a hormone that relaxes us and lowers anxiety. It's often called the “cuddle hormone,” and when it's released during these 20-second hugs it can effectively lower blood pressure and reduce the stress hormone norepinephrine. The long and short? Good, long hugs are good for your heart.
