Anxiety & Stress: Petting animals have many health benefits during a crisis

The first step in handling a crisis is about practicing techniques to calm yourself.

Yesterday, the post was about using touch to calm unpleasant feelings and thoughts.

Petting animals, especially cats and dogs, but even mechanical animals according to research, has proven to be both soothing and give longer life expectancy.

Pets have been found to bring many health benefits.

They can contribute to reduced stress, blood pressure, anxiety, depression and loneliness.

Animals can enhance the experience of social support, self-esteem, playfulness and raise the mood.

They also make us become more active outdoors.
