About This Episode
Think about the last time you hugged somebody who wasn’t in your home. When was the last time you shook someone’s hand? When did you last lean in to give a friend a kiss on the cheek to say goodbye? The current pandemic has changed our lives exponentially, and human touch is, perhaps, one of the hardest things we have had to give up because of this quarantine. On today’s episode of the Tuesday People podcast, host Mitch Albom and producer Lisa Goich – with words and wisdom from Mitch’s beloved professor Morrie Schwartz – discuss how the lack of human touch is affecting the way we live, love and emotionally survive at a time when touch is needed more than ever.
This podcast I really like as I am not the biggest hugger in the world to begin with. When there is a good reason to I hug, but yeah the virus has put stops to that. I can see where some that hug a lot would miss it and those people probably still hug family members when they see them but I don’t . We do some social distance and that is okay . I am out in the public all the time and would not want to give anyone the virus if I am in contact with someone .When I see some family a few times a year I get hugs from them. This year we are not getting together because of the virus. I hope that changes for next year though. I have always enjoyed putting my arm on someones or touch their shoulder and never gave it a second thought like people do today. To me nothing wrong with that. Have a great day and you enjoy hugging Knox.
