Love a Pet
Find a pet to snuggle with, play with, walk or watch.
Pets are therapeutic. Numerous studies have shown that a cat or dog can lower your blood pressure, heart rate, and anxiety. The social support pets provide can improve relaxation and reduce stress. Walking a dog increases social engagement and keeps you active. And here's a cool fact: Sharing a long mutual gaze with your dog releases oxytocin, enhancing your sense of trust, connection, courage, generosity and empathy.
