Why Spend Time With Your Pet?

Our lives can become so busy and complicated with work, family, commitments, children, and of course bills to pay.  Forgetting to relax and take the time to enjoy the life we have can be a challenge.  That’s where pets come into play (literally).  Having a dog, cat, bird, fish, or whatever it is we choose to love and care for gives us a sense of purpose.  Taking time to spend with that animal that we love and adore, it helps us to stop, slow down, and enjoy life.  Find ways to spend more hours with your favorite beloved friend because the benefits far outweigh not doing it!

5 Reasons Pets Are Great For Us

  • They get us outside. Getting outdoors to take a walk with your dog makes you breathe in fresh air and soak up some Vitamin D from the sun.
  • Pets listen unconditionally. Dogs, cats, or maybe a bunny – they all have superior listening skills when we need to vent or just get something out of our own head.  Pets don’t judge what we say and they never talk back!
  • Petting your animal reduces stress. When you touch your pet, hand to fur, oxytocin which is related to stress, is released and thus reduces your blood pressure.
  • They get you moving. Walking your dog or playing with your cat gets you moving and increases your heart rate which is good for your muscles, bones, and overall mental health.
  • Pets make us smile! Smiling is an instant positive mood enhancer which helps us to stay happy and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.

Take Your Pet To Work

Every year people pick a day to bring their children to work, so why not have a “Bring Your Dog to Work Day?”  Since pets help to reduce stress and add positive vibes to our lives, they should be a welcome sight at any job that is safe to bring a pet into for the day.  Have fun this (June 23) by taking your dog to work and have a relaxing day at the office!
