There have been studies conducted that shows that dogs reduces stress levels among humans, when petted. Playing with or petting an animal can increase levels of the stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and decrease production of the stress hormone cortisol. This physical condition takes us into the state of being ‘tensions free / happy’. Spending time around animals, such as going bird watching, enjoying the company of a therapy dog, or even playing with your pet spider can be beneficial to your well-being.
Communicating with animals may lower your blood pressure and improve your overall health. Moreover, eating alongside bad company may decrease your appetite, but eating in the company of an animal may improve your eating habits. They impact your overall daily lifestyle and health drastically and lets you be the wonderful and happy person as you can be.
The best part is that a good relationship with your animal friends may spill over into better relations with humans, too. aking care of an animal can also teach responsibility and stimulate feelings of trust, openness, and companionship.
