For me (and for many people), one of the greatest tools to combat stress is having an animal. It’s just amazing how purely by stroking your pet, coorying in for a cuddle, swiftly lowers respirations and heart rate. If we are feeling alone with our emotions our animals can offer companionship too. Nowadays some pets are allowed into nursing homes for this very reason. Personally I love animals (well….I must admit I wouldn’t fancy coorying in with a snake but other than that….) so I get so much out of relationships with them. Be it cats or dogs, horses or hamsters, budgies or rabbits we can really benefit from being in the company of a loved pet.
