8 Reasons Why Each of Us Can’t Live Without Physical Touch

We’ve forgotten how to communicate through touch. Sure, we give others an occasional hug and a kiss on the cheek, but new technology has affected how we relate to people. We’re under the impression that we’re more connected to each other but it’s not true: a screen will never be able to replace a touch on the hand or a pat on the back. This is worrisome since touch is the first sense we used to communicate and it’s the one we lack to do better today.
