La durata media di un abbraccio tra due persone è di 3 secondi.
Ma i ricercatori hanno scoperto qualcosa di fantastico.
Quando un abbraccio dura 20 secondi, si produce un effetto terapeutico sul corpo e la mente.
La ragione è che un abbraccio sincero produce un ormone chiamato "ossitocina", noto anche come l'ormone dell'amore.
Questa sostanza ha molti benefici sulla nostra salute fisica e mentale, ci aiuta, tra l'altro, a rilassarci, a sentirci al sicuro e calmare le nostre paure e l'ansia.
Questo meraviglioso tranquillante è offerto gratuitamente ogni volta che si prende una persona tra le nostre braccia, che si culla un bambino, che si accarezza un cane o un gatto, che si balla con il nostro partner, che ci si avvicina a qualcuno o che si tiene semplicemente un amico per le spalle.
Oggi, prendete qualcuno tra le braccia per 20 secondi, fate questo semplice regalo... (scultura: "Il Ritorno" (1996), by Bruno Bruni. Bronze)
Day 100 / 100 Day Challenge to paint or draw from Life.
I MADE IT!! All good intentions to head out and do a plein air oil painting after a skype meeting went out the window. Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes, so we adapt, change direction but most important of all, we keep going.
Those who have been following for the past 100 days, have gone through the journey with me. And I thank you all so sincerely for your comments and support.
I began my 100 Day Challenege originally, with the 30 Day Challenge in September, set by @stradaeasel. I registered on the last day of registration (typical I hear some say!). I was sick with Influenza and the croup. I couldn't work, couldn't throw or anything. So this Challenge was a godsend. I could paint. It saw me through 3 weeks of illness; it opened up my eyes again to the structural beauty of flowers and painting still life; it got me drawing again to record my life, even when I was so dog tired that all I could manage was a bunch of bananas (which my savvy daughter requested I remove). I rediscovered my travelling watercolour set which I used whilst trekking in Nepal years ago.
Standout moments for me were the first floral still life of banksias (now sold); finally being well enough to go skiing again and doing a water-colour on Mt Buller(now sold); painting the Murray River at the end of the 30 Day Challenge and painting a portrait of my Dad, to name a few.
But of course, nothing will ever come close to the emotional roller coaster of drawing my Mum after her stroke in the ER ward, after being told to gather the family. And then, as my beautiful Mum slipped quietly out the open door of Life, to paint her in repose and at peace.
So it is fitting that I finish with another portrait - my own. Drawing with a pen allows for no hiding. Look closely and it looks like scribble. That scribble is my life.
And now, I will continue to create every day, because I have to. I am an artist. It's what I do. I will post what I have done that day and I will begin again on 1st January for the Strada Easel 31 Day Challenge. Merry Christmas!
Als er iemand weet hoe je de kleinste details moet uitwerken, is het @marc__langer wel. Zijn weergave van de werkelijkheid heeft iets broeierigs. Harde schaduwen, egale vlakken. Art mocht een kijkje nemen in zijn atelier!
