stress

We all experience stress, every day. Stress is only a problem when we have too much of it or when it interferes with other aspects of our lives – much like depression .  Research shows that having a dog, petting a dog, walking a dog, and otherwise spending time with a pet is a stress-reducer. Petting a dog lowers our blood pressure and reduces stress hormones in your body. Do you know what else does that? Taking advice from a dog! That’s right, reading Dear Mishu’s column and trying to get in the mindset of a dog can definitely help reduce anxiety. Why? Because dogs have a simple approach to life and live in the moment, so they don’t get hung up with all the little things that cause humans to worry. So next time you start to feel tense or worried, just grab your dog for a pet or a walk, or open up dearmishu.com or @dearmishu on instagram and inhale a little of that dog peace!
