Four easy ways to incorporate more touch into your day.

1. Work It Out: Find a hands-on form of exercise, like ballroom dance or instructor-based Pilates. Or do yoga, which Field says is a type of  self-massage: "It involves pushing your limbs together and against the floor,  which stimulates pressure receptors."
2. Check Your Policy: Health insurers are slowly recognizing massage not just as a therapy for injury  but also as a form of preventive care. Call yours to find out if they'll cover a session or reimburse you under your flexible spending account.
3. Hug Someone: Yes, it really is that easy. "When you give a friend or family  member a squeeze, you stimulate their pressure receptors as well as your own,"  says Field.
4. Do It Yourself: Field recommends self-massage for  areas that carry tension, such as the neck, shoulders, and lower back. You can  also roll a tennis ball over any sore spots, like under your feet or between  your wrists.
