In a recent survey done at California State University, marketing professor Dennis Tootelian recently announced that 63% of Californians have actually hugged a tree. I guess some stereotypes are actually true, but why do Californians hug trees?
"Tree hugging grounds you, somehow. It connects you to the earth and the sky. I recommend that everyone do it," - Micaela Hoskins of San Jose, CalifI have to admit that I have hugged a tree a few times in my life as well, not for the same reasons as most Californians though. The first time I hugged a tree, it was about a half a second after I ran into it with my face while I was riding my bike and I hugged that sucker for all I was worth to avoid doing a second face plant into the ground as well. The second time I was at a party at a campground and ended up using a tree as a make shift stabilizer at the end of the evening.
Maybe it is true, I did feel more grounded after I hugged a tree on both those occasions. I too recommend tree hugging for everyone!
