Reach Out and Touch

Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple has a great post today about the power of touch.

“The largest organ on our body is the skin. Its protective layers guard our muscles, bones, internal organs, and ligaments, while its active function results in the most fundamental of our five senses – that of touch. For all our focus on maintaining optimal organ function through diet, exercise, and lifestyle, could it be that we’re neglecting the organ that figures most prominently in our daily, direct communion with the material world?”

It might take some practice to get it right, but even a hug fail is a good hug. Need more help? wikiHow has some tips.
