Also when we rest our hand on an object does that mean we are effectively levitating because of the repulsion of the electron clouds?
Yes ... but let's be careful to understand that the sensation of touch is a psychophysical phenomenon. The electrons at the surface of an object "push" against the electrons at the surface of your fingers. The electrons never touch each other. Your skin deforms a bit, and the nerves in your fingers detect this deformation, and send a signal to your brain. Your brain creates the sensation of touch.
I don't know if I'd use the word "levitate", but it is true that there is a tiny gap between the electrons.
