My husband now works at a standing desk. What that means practically is that I get more hugs.
This is not an advertisement for standing desks (though they are healthy for you), but rather just a note that changing something little can make a difference in how you see everyone around you. My husband is standing, I walk by, he thinks “hug.” He’s just that kind of guy.
Are there things you could change that might help you be more aware or sensitive to those around you? Turn your desk around so that you are looking into the room instead of at a wall. Do your kitchen prep while the kids are at school so you are free when they get home. Move the TV from your bedroom to a sitting area. Turn your phone to vibrate during dinner time. And, of course, offer more hugs.
Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it’s inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It’s non-taxable, non-polluting, and is, of course, fully refundable. Author Unknown
