Hugging For Depression / Hugging For Mania
Studies have shown that hugging can boost our immune system. Likewise a nice hug make us often feel loved and cared for-it bring a sense of well-being. This tool is used by many who suffer from Depression and Mania and studies have found it to be helpful.
We have been studying how effective Hugging is and have so far learned some very interesting things. While many people rave about the difference Hugging has made, when we dig a little deeper we find that how one uses the tool has a major effect on how well it works.
Please take a couple of minutes to answer the following questions about how you are using Hugging as a tool. Our hope is that by answering a few simple questions you will learn more about how to use the tool yourself, but also that what you share can benefit others when we compile all of the information we gather.
The study is completely anonymous. We do not even ask who you are or any identifying information. Please fill out the questionnaire below right away and thank you in advance for helping us with our study of walking as a tool for depression, mania, and mixed states.
