The article, “Vitamin P: The Secret to Health and Longevity”, by Mark Hyman states
“We all know that techniques such as yoga and meditation can offer major health benefits by reducing stress. They’re great. But did you know that the companionship of a dog can provide similar stress relief and other health benefits?”
Looking to reduce stress? Maybe you should look to a local animal shelter. A new article states that pets lower stress. Our furry friends are excellent at being there when we need stress relief. Petting your pooch can also have a positive effect on our stress. The action of petting seems to allow us to forget about our stress and focus on something else.
