Do you own a pet? Odds are, after a stressful day, walking into your door and having your adorable pet greet you help reduce stress. Your furbaby can also help:

  • Decrease cholesterol levels.
  • Decrease feelings of loneliness.
  • Boost your mood.
  • Decrease anxiety and depression.
  • Adds more laughter into your life.
