The Need For Community
Hug Therapy. It’s real. In our increasingly cyber world, we find ourselves more disconnected from one another; sprinkle in pour on a healthy dose of Covid related social distancing, and we might as well be in solitary confinement. Many feel alone and turn to Instagram, Netflix, and yes, professional cuddlers. At the same time, one of the biggest benefits of living in a small town is the strength of community that so many places, like Hudson, share. So how do we tap into that? What does science say about community and why we need each other so badly? What can we do to meaningfully connect? And how can we reach out to those most in need of connection?
