The days are busy with many of us planning, shopping and running around as the holidays are right around the corner. One constant in this time of year is the beating we all put on our debit and credit cards.

We at Mississauga Toyota wanted to do something a little different and feature all the FREE things that you can find at our dealership! Some are always available to you, some are special, just for this time of year but we felt it’d be nice to throw a few freebies your way in the hopes that we can make your day a little bit better!

Day 1 – Free Hugs!

Marcus Julian Felicetti writes about the importance of hugs here but we wanted to highlight a few of our favourites:

  • The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.
  • Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one’s serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.
  • Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.
  • Hugging relaxes muscles. Hugs release tension in the body. Hugs can take away pain; they soothe aches by increasing circulation into the soft tissues.

If there is ever a time of year to put hugs to work it’s during the holidays. Out of practice? Just get down to our dealership, we have lots of folks who are happy to give away a free hug. We’re easy to find in Mississauga, close to Sherway Gardens at Dundas and the 427!
