Sometimes you just need your mom — no matter how old you are. Whether it’s calling her for a soothing phone conversation, turning to her advice on stress management, or enjoying a relaxing tradition that the two of you share, Mom can be that one person who reminds you that everything’s going to be okay. Her calming effect even has some science behind it: Research has found that hearing your mother’s voice on the phone has the same tension-busting impact as a good cuddle.
Children know that mum’s got the words when life seems to be getting too much.
Now it seems her voice on the phone can work the same soothing magic as when she is there to give her offspring a comforting cuddle. US scientists believe hearing mother down the line produces the same stress-busting effect on her daughter as physical contact such as a hug or a loving arm round the shoulder.-www.huffingtonpost.com
