101 reasons why you should cuddle
Cuddling works on an incredible number of levels and has a positive influence on our whole being and our whole life.
And it's simply a lot of fun! So you shouldn't just cuddle, you have to! You have to! Seriously!!!
P.S. For the body it does not matter if these touches come from a stranger or from the dearest person in your world. As long as they are attentive, loving and appreciative.
The touches and the experience may feel different, but that is because you classify them differently.
The important thing is: Everything at your time. If it is not imaginable for you to cuddle with strangers, then don't.
Cuddling is pleasant.
Cuddling makes you attractive.
Cuddling brings a smile to your face and everyone is more beautiful when they smile.
Cuddling makes you more attentive. We sharpen our perception by feeling how a touch is actually meant. Our antennae are finely tuned and so it is easy to let go of the fear of being abused and exploited. Our alarm system sounds earlier and more clearly and protects us from further attacks. Or it remains silent and so we have a new and beautiful experience, which we might have said no to earlier because of fear.
Cuddling makes us balanced and patient. A happy and fulfilled person is not thrown off track so quickly and the small bumps and difficulties simply bounce off us.
Cuddling is satisfying. But you have to understand that there are two basic needs concerning touch: The need for loving, mindful, unconditional touch and the need for sex and sexual expression. Both must be fulfilled in order to be truly deeply and fully satisfied. This state of being cannot be achieved through sex alone.
Cuddling is affirmative and affirming.
Cuddling is invigorating. At exhaustion, cuddling recharges us. We recharge our energy and the spirits of life awaken again.
Cuddling is comfortable. You lie around, it is warm, soft, great and incredibly easy.
Cuddling is intoxicating. The high concentration of feel-good hormones can lead to a cuddle high that feels like a light alcohol or drug intoxication. A feeling like being newly in love, in love with life.
Cuddling is soothing. With sufficient cuddling, a deep calm returns to us. The body falls into a deep state of relaxation.
Cuddling is exhilarating and energizing. Cuddling charges us positively. After a cuddle session, we are recharged, full of energy and ready to get back into everyday life. This mood is transferred and we become more pleasant contemporaries.
Cuddling has a confirming effect. Rejection issues can disappear completely if we are touched enough, as can any weight gain or loss that may accompany it. (With bulimia and anorexia, eating habits improve and the body image is less distorted).
Cuddling is proven. For thousands of years touch (massage, laying on of hands) has been used for healing purposes.
Cuddling is a relationship booster. Couples who cuddle a lot stay together longer, argue less, trust each other more and feel a deeper connection to each other than couples who do it little or not at all.
Cuddling makes you charismatic and makes people shine. You should see the fulfilled, happy faces and shining eyes at the end of a cuddle party - irresistible.
Cuddling makes courageous. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If we show ourselves and dare to ask, it is more likely that many of our wishes will be fulfilled. This in turn strengthens the confidence to show yourself more and more often with your wishes and desires. We can learn to stand by ourselves. We can lose the fear of being judged for our wishes. We want what we want, how we want it and when we want it.
Cuddling makes grateful. And gratitude is the highest form of manifestation. Until you are grateful, you draw more and more wonderful things into your life.
Cuddling makes it easier. Touching creates relief from worries and problems: The centers in the brain responsible for problem solving relax immediately after touch. The body interprets being touched as a promise of support and this far more than any form of verbal attention. Touch relieves mental pain. (The pain centre in the brain is active not only in physical pain but also in mental pain).
Cuddling makes honest. You learn to honestly say yes and no to offered touch. You learn to stand by your desires and boundaries. This also transfers to other areas of your life.
Cuddling is and makes clear. Your body sends you clear messages as to whether it feels something pleasant or unpleasant. You learn to listen to these messages and to interpret them correctly. You also learn to send clear messages with your body and with your words. Clear communication.
Cuddling makes imaginative. Soon you will no longer be limited to crawling your head and stroking your back. There is soooo much more to discover.
Cuddling makes empathic. A soft open body leads to a soft open being. You become more receptive to the signals and vibrations of your fellow human beings and your surroundings.
Cuddling makes you ecstatic. By cuddling your body opens up, it enjoys. It no longer closes itself off for fear of unpleasant experiences. This allows deeper and more intense sensations. Over time you will become what you were made for: a being capable of ecstasy.
Cuddling is electrifying. There are these encounters... everything flows, the whole body is like electrified, vibrates, hums, enjoys. A cuddle dance in twos, in threes, in...
Cuddling is recommended. For 101 reasons.
Cuddling is relaxed. We get into an almost floating state in which we are simply, nothing is supposed or wanted anymore - pure relaxation. Filled with cuddling, all the little things and adversities that otherwise drive us crazy simply bounce off.
Cuddling makes you successful. It has been proven that sports teams that share a lot of physical contact win more often. A waitress who touches her guests lightly is much more likely to get a tip and salespeople are more successful if they integrate touch into the sales conversation. Touch increases cognitive performance and attention.
Cuddling is fulfilling. The hole in us that says: "I can't take it anymore, it's too much. I give and give and get nothing/not enough in return. I feel empty and needy. It's my turn" disappears. It slowly fills up from the inside, especially through touch. Then we again have the (emotional) resources that are necessary to give freely and support others. Which is also fulfilling.
Cuddling is brightening. As long as I cuddle, I or participants in my Conscious Cuddle Experiences have one eureka moment after the other: "Oh, so that's how 'giving is happier than receiving' feels. Oh, my God, it's a beautiful state of mind."
Cuddling is insightful. In the clear, mindful framework of a cuddling session or cuddle party, people learn that touch does not necessarily have to lead to sex or any other commitment and can enjoy physical closeness in a relaxed way. For many it becomes clear for the first time that there is a difference between relaxing cuddling energy and stimulating sexual energy. For many it is new that you can decide where to direct your energies. It is liberating to realize that there are two different needs, the need for sex and the need for closeness and security. These and many other insights come naturally through cuddling. You don't need a teacher or guru to preach to you.
Cuddling has an enlightening effect. Personal and spiritual growth happens through cuddling: the perceptions become more refined. We feel less and less comfortable in "rough" energies. A wealth of touch releases resources that can be used for learning and development. Cuddling is spiritual work.
Cuddling is amazingly versatile and simply never gets boring.
Cuddling makes you euphoric. Cuddling releases a hormone cocktail similar to that of drug highs.
Cuddling makes fascinating. Touching makes the skin glow and makes you shine.
Cuddling makes you flawless. Even a short touch, e.g. on the shoulder, makes you perform better in tests.
Cuddling makes solemn. We celebrate life and ourselves.
Cuddling makes free. Cuddling gives the experience of freedom and security: We move in the area of conflict between freedom and security. Often we have to choose between the two. Having one and longing for the other. Cuddling gives both. Touch conveys security. Freedom is created because touch is unconditional and does not entail any consequences or responsibilities.
Cuddling makes you peaceful. Nations where more cuddles/touches are done are more peaceful than nations where less is done or lived. Cuddling is peace work.
Cuddling makes you happy and cheerful. Sometimes real laughter flashes can be triggered. This happens in the individual sessions but also during the cuddle parties. And then the whole room laughs.
Cuddling makes you fearless. If you keep experiencing that your questions ("Would you like to cuddle me? Can I scratch your back?") are more often followed by a yes than a no and that the received no's don't kill you, you become more fearless in asking. You dare and take heart, just as you are.
Cuddling is beneficial. Growth hormones are only released when the child is touched. A child thrives and develops better if it is touched regularly and lovingly. Untouched babies die.
Cuddling is grounding. Slow cuddles ground. They bring you down and into your body. They strengthen the connection with your body.
Cuddling makes you enjoy. Consciously enjoying touch teaches us to be more aware of how wonderful, breathtaking, beautiful or delicious something is.
Cuddling nourishes. The first thing to mention here is nourishment. We can make up for the not, or too little received attention of our parents and thereby improve our relationships with men, women and ourselves. We dissolve the trauma of not being wanted. Secondly, being nourished is also important because a "nourished" society simply produces fewer perpetrators and victims.
Cuddling is enjoyable. I leave every ice cream and every mousse-au-chocolat for a wonderful cuddle. Cuddling is so much better!
Cuddling makes you feel valued. It is a special gift to receive touch without having to give anything in return. We feel precious and loved.
Cuddling makes you feel skilled. Your hands become skillful head cuddlers and coveted back strokers.
Cuddling strengthens. Refuelled with positive energy you can face everyday life much better and more powerful again.
Cuddling makes you healthier/healthier. Cuddling relieves stress. It helps the body to stop the release of the hormone cortisol, which is responsible for stressful feelings in your body. Cuddling improves your sleep. Blocked cortisol and released oxytocin are the perfect conditions for restful peaceful sleep. Cuddling stabilizes your blood pressure. Cuddling relieves headaches/pain by up to 50%. Touching blocks the pain signals because the tactile signals are transmitted to the brain faster than the pain signals. Cuddling relieves depression. Oxytocin makes our lives easier. The perceived heaviness and hopelessness simply no longer feels so overwhelming and depressing. It also makes cuddling more social. It makes it easier to get in touch with people and breaks the vicious circle of isolation into which depression leads you. An upward spiral can begin. ... and much more.
By cuddling you become credible. More and more you learn to stay true to yourself. Your word gets weight. This makes it easy for others to rely on you. You become someone you can count on.
Cuddling makes you happy. The experience of unconditional acceptance, of being allowed to show yourself as you are and how you feel at the moment, activates a spectrum of feelings ranging from full satisfaction to heavenly bliss. Whoever can establish a connection to other people through touch needs nothing else. The cuddle hormone cocktail is a happiness hormone cocktail!
Cuddling makes generous. If you feel your nos clearly and can communicate clearly, your Jas get more value. You can trust yourself and know that you will not go beyond your own limits. Thereby your Jas flow much more freely. You become generous.
Cuddling makes you harmonious. Touch reduces aggression. Even a twenty-minute cuddle session before an argument can make it more harmonious. You have become more attuned to each other, it is easier to approach the other, more difficult to consciously hurt the other.
Cuddling is healing. Touch reduces/alleviates: - the itching of neurodermatitis.asthma (touch leads to an increased maximum respiratory volume and reduces fear and nervousness before a new asthma attack). - the possibility of postnatal depression. - the duration of labour during birth and the need for painkillers, etc. Touch promotes/strengthens: - the immune system. The level of stress hormones is lowered and the number of immune bodies is increased. This also results in an increase in the ability to fight off infections. - the growth of babies. With a gentle maternal touch, special nerve cells in the skin (CT cells) signal the brain to release oxytocin. A relaxed body can work undisturbed. However, if there are high amounts of cortisol in the blood, the body switches to survival. Growth and immune system are stopped. - the natural activity of killer cells in HIV patients. - the healing of wounds and is therefore especially helpful after operations. - the healing in hospital. A stay in hospital is anything but beneficial to health. Bright light, early waking, pain, resulting in little sleep, fear, forced closeness to other people etc. causes stress. Healing is made enormously difficult. The body is on the alert the whole time, the immune system shuts down. Even a short touch causes the release of oxytocin. The patient calms and relaxes and heals faster. Touch is especially recommended as a supportive treatment for seriously or chronically ill patients. The power of confidence and trust results in greater chances of healing. In this case, eye contact and a pat on the back from the doctor are enough to trigger it. Cuddling calms and relaxes. Effects include muscle relaxation, lowering blood pressure and heart rate, thus reducing the risk of heart disease and balancing hormone levels. Touch supports/accelerates (self-) healing. Through cuddling therapy, the body receives a message via the receptors in the skin that it can calm down. The body relaxes, becomes looser and starts to heal itself (that is why the laying on of hands is actually effective). Recovery is also faster if you feel appreciated and loved.
Cuddling makes you cheerful. Through the beautiful feelings that cuddling triggers in us, a gentle cheerfulness is created that outshines the next days.
Cuddling makes you warm. Touch is the language of the heart. ("I am touched.") When our heart and its qualities such as empathy and unconditional love are awakened, we actually become more hearty.
Cuddling makes us helpful. After receiving touch, people are more open to offering or giving help to others. This has been proven by several studies.
Cuddling is highly appreciated. As a cuddly experienced master toucher you will be highly appreciated.
Cuddling makes you humorous. Cuddling brings such a relaxation to your being that you can laugh about yourself and your mistakes much more often. ... and you need humour to cuddle with complete strangers.
Cuddling is idyllic. You are in a wellness oasis.
Cuddling is interesting. If you tell people that you go cuddling, everybody will listen to you. You are still a pioneer and a trailblazer.
Cuddling makes intuitive. When cuddling we learn to trust our body more and more. More and more often and faster we notice our gut feeling and follow it. This is also transferred to life.
Cuddling makes you young. Being happy keeps you young and youthful.
Cuddling makes you smart. Through sensual impulses the brain matures faster, because the protective medullary sheaths around the nerve tracts are formed earlier. This leads to improved and faster nerve conduction. Language, stamina and social skills develop better when children feel safe and secure and are touched attentively. If children are often cuddled, they are actually smarter. Our brain functions better after touch. In one study, for example, it was shown that the participants were able to solve math problems faster and with fewer mistakes after receiving touch than the comparison group, which had to complete the same task without touching.
Cuddling makes royal. Angeline KuschelQueen - the title is hard cuddled. You can do that too.
Cuddling makes powerful. Through unconditional touch we can make up for the unfulfilled need in childhood to be seen and to be allowed to be as we are. With its fulfillment comes strength and self-confidence, as we stop adapting - wanting to be different just to be loved and accepted at last.
Cuddling makes you smile. Come and look at the faces of the participants at the end of a cuddle party.
Cuddling makes you long lasting. Those who are touched a lot live longer.
Cuddling makes you feel alive. "The message "I am alive" can actually only be conveyed through the body." - Martin Grunwald.
Cuddling makes passionate. To regularly arrange cuddling sessions with one's partner that leave the sexual space between the two untouched is a relationship and sex booster. Completely new sides of the partner and the love for each other become visible. The intimacy between the two grows, a completely new trust is created. The sexuality and relationship lived together becomes more and more fulfilling.
Cuddling makes you lovable, affectionate and friendly.
The attention to other people, the feeling of love can help us to develop into better people and to be happier in the end. And that is why cuddling makes us lovable.
Cuddling makes us flawless. The one who can cuddle pleasantly becomes flawless in the eyes of the other. You cuddle each other beautifully and perfectly. What more do you need?!!?
Cuddling makes masterly ...in touch. You become a goddess of touch and massage. Your loved ones and all cuddling partners will thank you for it.
Cuddling has a motivating effect. The small and big successes and breakthroughs motivate you to continue working on yourself.
Cuddling makes courageous. Cuddling gives us a place in society. If the basic need for belonging and therefore security is fulfilled, we have the strength and courage to throw ourselves into life and make new experiences.
Cuddling makes us open. We become more open towards all people. If you cuddle only with people you find attractive in the beginning, you will soon discover more and more the beauty of all people and approach them more openly.
Cuddling makes positive. Cuddling promotes a positive basic attitude towards life. I have my place, everything is good and life is beautiful (and can be so simple).
Cuddling makes no problems. Ok - let's say more problem-free. Cuddling makes everything feel easier. Tasks and challenges (be it a test, the ascent of a mountain, a difficult conversation or the laundry mountain) that don't seem so overwhelming and scary anymore are easier to tackle. Problem solved.
Cuddling makes productive. Cuddling makes the brain temporarily shut down. Reset. After that you are a bubbling source of creativity and productivity.
Cuddling makes respectful. You learn to respect your own limits and those of others.
Cuddling is romantic. Hach. : ) Cuddling is one of the most beautiful and romantic things you can give your partner. It is more than just pure intimacy. It is a soothing message that tells your partner that you are there for him, he is safe in your arms and he can feel protected. Couples who cuddle more often are happier because they share a whole new level of comfort and love that cannot even be achieved through sex. Cuddling gives you a greater sense of belonging to a particular person than anything else.
Cuddling makes you calm (inwardly). Lack of touch lets us ask the question about the meaning of life. On the spiritual level, touch makes it possible to do nothing and just enjoy. It enables complete relaxation, which can lead to a meditative state of consciousness. we rest within ourselves.
Cuddling creates self-responsibility. Through cuddling we are encouraged and enabled to take responsibility. If we have learned this in connection with touch, it is transferred to all areas of our being. We take responsibility for our life, for our actions and for their consequences.
Cuddling makes us more sensitive. Touch increases our own body perception. Most people spend 90% of the day in their head. They think, talk or are busy with what is happening. They forget their body and perceive it consciously in the rarest of ways. Chronic tensions or worse arise because we become aware of the signals sent by the body only very late or too late. Touch creates concentration on our body sensations. The perception refines and the connection between us and our body is strengthened.
Cuddling makes you beautiful. Touch makes the skin glow and makes you shine.
Cuddling makes safe/provides security. The experience of closeness and belonging (besides freedom the first and most important basic need) is the experience of unconditional emotional security. "I have my place, I belong. I do not have to perform or be anything. I exist, that is enough. I am enough." The experience of being accepted creates a deep feeling of security.
Cuddling is/does it playfully. The joy of playing is rediscovered as soon as one has put aside the seriousness and the questions ("What is cuddling and what is not? Am I doing everything right?"). The possibilities of cuddling are endless. Just discover them.
Cuddling makes spontaneous. Practising your limits and expressing your wishes again and again soon leads to them bursting out of you without you having to think about it or feel it inside you. You become more authentic and spontaneous in expression. Also in other aspects of your life.
Cuddling makes you more stable. A person who is resting in his centre is no longer so easily thrown off course.
Cuddling makes brave. Cuddling teaches us to allow our feelings and emotions to return, which many people have forgotten. They equate emotions with weakness and therefore cannot show when they are disappointed, bitter, fearful or hurt. If these people are touched in a way that is not the least bit intrusive or intrusive, these suppressed emotions can burst forth with power. What touches us inwardly is often only triggered by external touch. To face this again and again not only heals on many levels, it also makes us brave. Brave and ready to face these unattractive and intense emotions again and again until they are healed. Through the newly learned touchability we are able to sustainably satisfy our needs and enter into deep relationships. We no longer have to keep people at a distance for fear of opening up these old wounds. We have learned to deal with them and have made the experience that they hurt but heal.
Cuddling makes tolerant. The discovery that even people we have rejected at first can touch beautifully and have great souls makes us more tolerant of others. The pigeonhole thinking is softened.
Cuddling makes sad. For now. The experience of closeness, appreciation, recognition and love can cause a lot of pain about the fact that we had to miss them until now. Pain that we didn't want to feel for a long time and couldn't. This is unpleasant but healing. We now become aware of them and they can be felt through. Touch is the most valuable resource for healing old wounds. Shame, guilt and fear have kept us from satisfying our needs since childhood. It is likely that they will appear if we now surrender to our need for closeness. The only way out is the way in.
Cuddling makes us more independent. Cuddling increases our self-esteem: many people actually only give, to get something (attention and support) back and are disappointed if this is less than expected. They feel used, empty and drained and look like this: grey, tired and not very lively. Others act altruistically, but do not feel valuable enough to be allowed to receive. They rarely ask for help or support and are not able to give themselves value. They need outside confirmation and are therefore dependent. Their mood either sinks or rises depending on the mood of the others. By cuddling we can give ourselves a value because we provide ourselves with what we need. We develop a healthy egoism, learn to put up with ourselves. "I am deeply touched to feel that I am worthy of being hugged." (participant of a cuddle party) We are less needy and become more independent. We no longer make lazy compromises just to get attention and touch.
Cuddling makes us carefree. Touch causes the release of happiness hormones, which relieve stress and anxiety. Especially the fear of other people, the fear of setting limits and the fear of being rejected can be reduced. Post-traumatic stress syndrome should also be mentioned here, whose symptoms decrease when the affected persons are massaged and touched.
Cuddling makes supportive and unselfish. If we have strength again, we can give again, really give and not secretly expect at least as much back or in the worst case even steal back (energy vampires).
Cuddling makes you irresistible. Through cuddling we become a gift for our fellow human beings. We are no longer needy and this makes us irresistible. Not to appear needy but to be fulfilled is a true flirt booster.
Cuddling makes us responsible. We can learn and practice to take responsibility for ourselves and stop thinking for others. What the other person supposedly wants and hopes for, we cannot know - we cannot read minds. But we can take responsibility for ourselves and our feelings and communicate them.
Cuddling makes seductive. If there is a need for closeness and contact to varying degrees in the partnership, one partner feels strongly pressured, perhaps retreats even further, the other partner suffers from the felt rejection, the lack of contact and his longing for more. This can also create a power gap. "If you do what I want, you'll get what you want." If the need for cuddling can also be fulfilled outside the relationship, this takes the pressure out of the partnership and a meeting at eye level is easier to achieve. Being and acting less needy increases the attractiveness in the relationship.
Cuddling has a rejuvenating effect. Cuddling is a stress killer and stress makes you old. And it goes on... maybe there will be 1001 reasons.
Cuddling makes you fall in love. Sometimes the encounter on a purely physical level can trigger an infatuation. We feel deeply touched, seen, recognized and understood ("Never before have I been touched so beautifully.") And sometimes the infatuation persists even if we get to know each other "properly" or even mentally afterwards. Beautiful relationships have been formed at our cuddle parties.
Cuddling makes trusting. Cuddling creates trust. When we cuddle, the hormone oxytocin is released in our body, also known as the "cuddling hormone". ... Cuddling strengthens the connection between mother and child and father and child (The child actually feels more lifted and becomes more trusting and affectionate. Feels secure in his place in the family) and between all people. Through touch the connections in the brain are strengthened, which make trust and bonding possible.
Cuddling spoiled. Your body and you.
Cuddling enchants you. The people around you are suddenly all beautiful.
Cuddling delights you.. There is the cuddle high - an almost ecstatic state. The high concentration of feel-good hormones can lead to a cuddle high, which feels like a light alcohol or drug intoxication. A feeling like being newly in love, in love with life.
Cuddling completed. Your personal and spiritual development takes a giant leap forward. Cuddling transformed.
Cuddling is beneficial for weaning bad habits. Firstly, we often reach for cigarettes or chocolate in stressful times. Cuddling is a stress killer. Secondly: Cuddling defeats the desire for bad habits and helps to combat cravings. Be it smoking, sugar cravings or other bad habits, they can all slowly disappear if you cuddle frequently and regularly. If the need for smoking is replaced with a hug, warmth and love help to forget dependencies. Thoughts are directed in another positive direction.
Cuddling makes you warm. In twos or in a cuddle pile it is simply warmer than alone.
A little snuggle makes you warm-hearted. I often observe how a cuddle party participant puts his own needs aside for the moment and is simply there for someone. Holding the other person warm-heartedly in the lap, giving them attention.
Cuddling makes you wise. Our wisdom grows with every cuddling experience. We get to know and love ourselves and being human.
Cuddling makes valuable. Your self-confidence increases when you are lovingly touched without having to do anything or be something special. You experience your own value in a new dimension.
Cuddling makes you well-behaved. A cuddled person whines less. He is satisfied and does not have to get attention in any other way.
Cuddling makes charity. People who have experienced mindful touch are more generous. They are more willing to give time, money, attention and support. Here is another study: One backslapper alone resulted in twice as many students volunteering to work or signing a petition. Participants who were sprayed with oxytocin in the nose were more willing to help a stranger or lend money.
Cuddling makes you dignified. A person who is no longer needy regains his dignity. He no longer has to make compromises to satisfy his needs. He no longer bends over backwards to please or be "nice". He is authentic.
Cuddling is magical. Cuddling gives you the opportunity to communicate better with your partner. Cuddling is a love language all its own. Many couple therapists keep telling us how couples can get closer through cuddling. When you are in the arms of your loved one, you tend to be on a whole new level of communication. This is a way of saying how much you feel for each other and how comfortable you feel with each other. By cuddling you tell each other more than a thousand words could.
Cuddling makes accessible. People who are cuddled become more social, more open and turned towards humanity through the cuddling hormone oxytocin. Misanthropy no longer has a chance.
Cuddling makes people happy. Through cuddling we can experience our body as a protective, comfortable home, which gives us feelings of relaxation, grounding and satisfaction, the experience of complete relaxation. A person at peace with himself is satisfied.
