“Life is slippery – take my hand” (Jackson Brown).
From time to time those of us that are in meaningful relationships with others forget how lucky that we are. There is much scientific evidence to prove that brain activity differs when we are in close contact with someone that we love. This suggests that human beings can cope with life’s trials and tribulations (including physical pain) better when in close physical contact with another. As simple as holding a hand!
