    There's nothing more calming than the feeling of a big bear hug or cuddling with your favorite blanket, and there's a science behind that.

In this episode, Marina shares her perspective on how the coverage of mental health / wellness in the media landscape has evolved over the past few years, her inspiration for starting Hugimals, the benefits behind weighted pressure, and how she navigates the challenges of the entrepreneurial lifestyle.
