This Week’s Spotlight and Project-Inspiration Theme: Hug Holiday
This week’s focus is Hug Holiday - June 29th!
June 29th is a day to celebrate something great - hugs! It is a day to be sure to take time out of your day to pause and show some appreciation and affection to loved ones. Especially this year with so much time passing where we may have been unable to give hugs. Research has shown there are many benefits to giving hugs, including giving self hugs! Hugs and affectionate physical touch can release dopamine and other “feel good hormones” in our brain, helping our bodies to relax and feel better even during stressful times.
With summer in full swing and the July 4th holiday is this weekend, use your Independence Day celebrations with family and friends to also share a hug! Why stop at just one day? Let’s continue to celebrate Hug Holiday all week and beyond!
Technology can even help us send hugs from a distance. If you aren’t able to hug in person, you could try sending a hugging .gif or video to another person. Maybe you even want to code and create your own interactive hugging project in Scratch, or a hugging app in AppInventor or Thunkable. Whatever you choose to make, be sure to share it with your friends and family.
