A lot of people are there who try to make someone happy and cheerful by means of hugging. When a person hugs someone for about twenty seconds or more than that then some amount of oxytocin are released from the body which makes that person to have some more faith in you. Now for brief information, oxytocin as a lot of people may think is a hormone but it is not. Oxytocin is actually a neurotransmitter which behaves as a hormone and helps a person to gain some fine trust from the other one. Several surveys have been made to understand the main role of this neurotransmitter in the life where faith and morality plays important role.
This oxytocin gets released from the body when a person considers himself to be secure and connected to his or her loved ones. Through this release the brain gets to know that now everything is fine and there is nothing to be worried of which makes a person feel safer. Coming to the production of oxytocin, one can ponder over the facts that the oxytocin is generally produced at the time of feeding your child from the breast, when a person is having an orgasm, at the time of getting hugs from your opposite sex, snuggling also contributes in the production of this neurotransmitter, having a fine dance with your partner can also help you produce oxytocin, getting a massage and praying to the god also contribute to this production.
Human beings are always considered to be social creatures. A person cannot live alone for his or her lifetime without making some fine relationships. In this social life, oxytocin improves our relationship and help us to make some fine bonds with one another by forwarding our positive part to the people with whom we are in contact so that one will be able to achieve some nice contentment along with the pleasure of feeling relaxed. Along with trust and faith, one can also be able to generate compassion, the ability to forgive someone and many more. If one puts this in simple words, then we can tell that the increase in the level of oxytocin in our head will help us to create good bonds with people we do not know.
Trust is something that cannot be gained by providing them with beautiful items or attractive things. Trust can only be gained if a person is satisfied enough as to the things that you are telling to your partner or the things that you supply them have come from your heart. In order to gain trust, hugging has been one of the oldest and finest methods. If one person hugs the other person for mere twenty to thirty seconds then the level of trust he or she can gain is much more than the attractive materials provided. Scientists as well as the research persons have made their analysis and have proved this theory to be right without any doubt or hesitation.
