What Helps Ease Skin Hunger?
Of course, the best solution to help ease skin hunger would be physical contact with other people. The pandemic is still ongoing, and scientists are still trying to develop a vaccine, so people still need to avoid physical contact as much as they can.
However, there are some things that you can do to help ease skin hunger and the craving for skin-to-skin contact:
Reach out to your loved ones
If you live alone, it might be a good idea to message your friends or your family. It might not be the same as being with them in person, but you can definitely feel their warmth and their love, even if it’s just a video call.
It’s also a great time to reconnect with friends you haven’t talked to in a long time.
Walk around, even just around your house
Mindful walking, or walking with awareness and consciousness about the environment, is a great way to help cope with skin hunger. It helps you focus on the now, and can also help you stay calm, and helps manage anxiety and stress.
One way to do mindful walking is to walk along a sidewalk and be conscious of your each step, like how your shoe touches the cement.
