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!

Dear Chloe
Maybe when you’re stressed and wanting to eat bad food, think about all the good things you want to do and what food will help you do them! Also, if you’re stressed, maybe a squeaky toy could help?

Love: Mishu

What do you guys think Chloe should do to avoid stress eating? Comment with your advice below!

I have to fly in a plane but I’m scared of heights! Any advice, Luke asks, Mishu answers

I have to fly in a plane but I’m scared of heights! Any advice, Luke asks, Mishu answers

Dear Luke: I think planes are good because I rode in one when I moved from Guatemala to California. That trip took me from being a rescued street dog to being a pampered American dog. Maybe focus on the good things that can happen from your trip and you won’t be scared?
Love: Mishu

Is anyone here afraid of flying and have some tips for Luke?
