National Stress Awareness Day: Get A Pet!
Stress Relief - The Center for Disease Control found that pets have a tendency to lower stress in their owners. This means that pet owners often have lower cholesterol, triglyceride and blood pressure levels, all three of which contribute to a healthy heart and a decrease in the chance of a heart attack or other heart related illness. Stress relief isn’t limited to cats and dogs, either. Something as simple as installing a fish tank has been shown to relieve stress as well.
