Pets or Companions ?

     PETS  OR COMPANIONS ?    

There are more of our understanding of the relationship between humans and the natural world. Pets are not just friendly animals and they are our companions. This relationship can influence us over four primary levels - physical, social, emotional and cognitive. It has its own benefits!
I have read the following article in one of the local daily which I would like to share with you this week!

"A recent study showed that there are more pets than children in American households.  Amazed?  Statistics say that there has also been an increase in the number of Indian families opting for pets.  Keeping pets at home has several benefits – and if you’re among those who has always wanted to keep a pet, let us convince you to go ahead and get one home!
PETS CAN ENHANCE YOUR MOOD
Whether you believe it or not, pets are a great way to improve your mood temperament.  Research has shown that people who suffer from various diseases have lesser chances of depression if they keep pets as compared to those who are suffering from similar diseases and don’t keep pets.
HELP TO CONTROL BLOOD PRESSURE
Health experts say that dog owners have less blood pressure and heart rates.  This eventually reduces the need to take medicines and also helps reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
A SOURCE OF EXERCISE
Want someone who will accompany you for walks?  Dogs can be great companions and will happily go out for walks, at times even urging you for a walk, when you’re too tired, thereby keeping you active and fit.  Other activities related to pets like feeding, bathing, playing and cleaning are also good ways to exercise.
AN ANTIDOTE FOR LONELINESS
No matter how low or lonely you keep, a pet will always be there for you.  Whether you want to pour your heart out to them or tell them you secrets, you know it’s all safe with them!  Pets give you unconditional love and are always faithful.
REDUCE STRESS
Stressed out?  Pets are known to reduce stress and anxiety levels.  Experts say that people can get relieve from stress and depression, if they spend time with their pets.
LONG LIFE
Several studies have revealed that people who tend to spend their time with pets are more likely to live longer than people who don’t.
BETTER SOCIAL SKILLS
Want to improve your social skills?  It is said that people who keep pets are said to be good in their social relations.  Kids who grow up with pets at home are always respectful towards living things.
SAFETY
Having a dog at home is especially good because they also double up as caretakers.  No burglar alarm can be better than a dog at home!"
