The Gladdest Thing Under the Sun: Give Empathy Hugs every Morning and Night

It’s called an “Empathy Hug.”  And here’s how it works. 

In the morning, right away when you wake up and greet your spouse, hug them for a few moments and really try to think of how they are feeling–what they might be worried about, excited about, focused on, working on, etc. 


Really try to cultivate empathy for them

in that shared moment.  


…What helps you have greater empathy toward your loved ones?  When do you feel the most “connected” to your family members?
