Hi my Inside-Out Beauties!
I can confirm today that Lola, the exotic shorthair kitten I got as an Anniversary gift from my husband, has changed my life... for the better of course!
Many of you know the story of how much I've been longing to have a kitten and why.
Just keep reading to find out more about the top 4 benefits of having a pet and how it can help you boost your Inner Beauty!
1♥ Stress Reduction! Having a cat or dog has many psychological benefits, and one of those is relieving stress. According to many studies, including one by MindLab, people tend to be more relaxed after spending time with their pets. Being able to care for an animal, or having a cat snuggle with you, can help you feel better, and reduce your level of stress. Personally, just touching little Lola's fur or even grooming her makes me feel so much more at peace.
2 ♥ Anxiety Reduction!
In this beautiful but crazy world we're living in, anxiety has become too frequent. Anxiety is caused by thoughts about the future and the past, and the inability to focus on what's happening right now. When you are concerned with caring for another creature, it can help you take your mind off your worries, and focus on that instant. That particular moment when you are touching or playing with your kitten gets your focus, and hence your mind stops.
3 ♥ Companionship!
The presence of a kitten snuggling with you and their unconditional love can heal the loneliest hearts. Just having them around or at home waiting for you brightens up your day! Here you can see me Blogging while Lolita sleeps belly up on my lap.
4 ♥ Longer Life!
Guess what? Along with being married, it is believed that people who share their lives with pets can actually enjoy a longer life ! What do these 2 have in common? LOVE! Giving and receiving love improves your immune system and will reduce your visits to the Doctor :)
So, to sum up, loving a pet just brings more love into your life. And love keeps us going strong on the right path come rain or come shine.
Do you love a pet? And... have you experienced any of the above benefits?
