Pets Help Reduce Stress

Did you know that spending time with your pets helps reduce stress?

It can be tough to relax when the world around us seems so unfamiliar. If you are feeling anxious, scared or lonely, look no further than your furry four-legged friends. Have you ever noticed that interacting with a dog or cat makes you feel calmer?

A research study on University students, conducted in 2019, has shown that spending just ten minutes petting a dog or cat reduces cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body. That’s pawesome!

Pets provide unconditional love and companionship and even encourage you to be more active. So spend some time with your favourite feline or canine. You’ll be glad you did.
