It’s official. Hugging is back!
May 17th heralded the next phase of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. Indoor socialising can now take place in groups of six people or two households. Pubs and restaurants can serve customers inside, hotels are open again and foreign travel is permitted.
But, over and above all that, we are allowed to hug again.
There are many different types of hug, and we probably feel comfortable with different types of hug for different people, depending on our relationship with them. But we are no longer advised not to hug, so it is fine to go ahead and hug in whatever way works for you.
Some people are more “touchy-feely” than others who may prefer to avoid hugging where possible. But whether or not you are a prolific hugger, there are thought to be many benefits of hugging.
A few of these are:
Despite all the above benefits, some of us may still feel a little uneasy about the risk of hugging others. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to rethink so many aspects of our daily lives that we had simply taken for granted up to that point. And now that things are easing, we can feel an understandable reluctance about going back too soon to the way things were.
So here are some tips about how to enjoy hugging but ensure that you are protecting yourself and others from any potential risk:
If you’re looking for ways to celebrate this new-found freedom with family and friends, then why not get them together for a Venture photoshoot? You can now come to us either as a group of six people or two households, and hopefully from the end of June there will no longer be any restrictions on numbers.
But whenever you do come and visit us at Venture Studios, rest assured that we will take extra special care of you and yours during your time with us. You can have fun together - and even hug - whilst one of our expert photographers creates some stunning family portraits that you will be proud to display in your homes for years to come.
So why not celebrate the return of the hug by booking your family portrait experience at your nearest Venture Studios today? You can book your photoshoot online. If you hurry and book by the end of May, we have some brilliant reopening offers available. You can check them out and book here.
We look forward to welcoming you to Venture studios very soon, and helping you celebrate the return of the hug and another significant step towards normality again.
