Touch Can Make You Feel More Connected
In this video, Helena Backlund Wasling, a researcher of human touch, speaks about a touch as the most important factor in our emotional and social life. According to statistics, in the more developed modern cities 50% of households are single households. This implies that in our strong individualistic society, there are many people who experience loneliness. She suggests a touch as a way of overcoming feelings of loneliness and as a means to become more connected.
