Quick Tip #21: Warm and fluffy stress relief

Being greeted at the door with a slobbery canine kiss may actually make you happier than you realise.

Recent studies have proven that spending time with pets is an effective, natural form of stress relief.

Just five minutes with your pet can reduce your blood pressure and stress hormones, such as cortisol and epinephrine.

Your cat or dog's companionship is also proven to release feelgood endorphins and serotonin.

So next time you're feeling stressed, a cuddle with Fluffy or Fido may be just what the doctor ordered!

Mammals such as cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs make the best companions for stress relief

You're so correct. After a horrible day at work, coming home to my kitty waiting for me at the door automatically gives me a smile and makes me feel so much better.
Aww pets are just the best, Therese!
