This Valentine’s Day, Snuggle encourages everyone to bear their hearts and express your heart-feld emotions during the #BearYourHeart Campaign. Singers have crooned about it, movies have dramatized it, studies have researched it and now a just released national survey has documented the challenges we have expressing our heart-felt emotions and telling those we care about how we really feel. And no time period highlights this emotional challenge more than the 25 days between National Hug Day and Valentine’s Day!
- Four in five people (80%) would appreciate a loved one showing them heart-felt emotion on Valentine’s Day.
- A significant proportion of people (37%) admit to being challenged when it comes to expressing heart-felt emotion to those they care about. and for men, the number is even highter at 41% compared with women at 33%.
- Surprisingly, one in ten (10%) would rather go to the dentist than talk about how they really feel.
- Half (50%) say writing it down is an easier way to express themselves than saying it.
