How Can You Use Animals to Heal?
1.) Talk to Your Pet: this allows you to get problems off your chest without fear of judgement. Studies have shown that speaking to your pet can help you feel understood, comforted and secure.
2.) Stroke Your Pet: the act of stroking has been scientifically proven to help reduce stress and kick start the immune system. A study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease found that the act of touch can help reduce blood pressure, anxiety and stress.
3.) Play With Your Pet: Those who interact with animals receive a boost in the hormone oxytocin, which is responsible for promoting love and trust within relationships. Having a pet can also allow you to be more loving and trusting in your personal life.
4.) Treat Your Pet as Family: According to one study, people who treat their pets as family members and establish a deep emotional bond receive more health benefits than those who don’t. From throwing your pet a birthday party, to cooking for them or playing with them, treating them as a member of your family helps to create social support.
5.) Exercise With Your Pet: Having a companion to join you on long walks can increase your motivation to exercise and keep you fit! We all know how good exercising is, and having a furry friend can definitely make it easier.
Of course, the best and only way to receive healing from your pet is to love them unconditionally in return and to do all you can to ensure that they are happy, safe, healthy and loved.
