During a time of social distancing, our connection with each other has never been more important. While taking steps to isolate ourselves is acting towards the greater good of the community and is critically important, the fact remains that isolating ourselves physically has mental and emotional implications and the need for touch is significant.
That’s where practicing safe, positive touch with your loved ones comes in to help reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. With safe touch in your life, you will release tension in your body, sleep better, and bring a greater awareness to your wellbeing.
In this time of uncertainty, give your children a loving touch that lets them know you're there. Strengthen your connection with your partner, and show yourself the positive touch you need to stay balanced in a challenging moment. When you and your loved ones learn how to experience Mindful Touch, you’ll feel a true difference in your daily interactions.
Though we’re putting distance between ourselves and the world, mindful touch gives you an opportunity to come together at home, with your loved ones.
