Owning a pet is a unique experience that can significantly improve our well-being. Pets enrich our lives with love. Their unconditional affection and amusing antics brighten our days and remind us to cherish every moment spent with them. But along with the happiness they bring, pets can also help us humans with our health. This specific study by Karen Allen and others, along with other studies, shows that spending time with pets reduces stress, anxiety, and even lowers blood pressure. Even if you do not have the time or resources to take care of an animal, there are numerous benefits to just watching animal videos! A study conducted by the University of Leeds showed how animal videos can lower your anxiety, heart rate, and blood pressure. You can find these videos on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram. These endearing antics, whether it is a cat getting scared by a cucumber or a dog gleefully frolicking in leaves, showcase the playful and joyful nature of our beloved pets.
