      'Just hug it out!' on National Hug Day

      EUGENE, Ore. - Sometimes all you need to brighten a gloomy day is a big old bear hug.


      National Hug Day started in Caro, Michigan in 1986 and is now observed by multiple countries around the world.


      Studies have shown that a good hug can help the mind and the body. It can also help build a strong immune system, decrease the risk of heart disease, and lower stress levels in women.


      So come on...try it out. Give out a big bear hug and see how it feels.
