Top Five Ways a Pet Can Improve Your Health

 If you ever had a dog and unfortunately experienced its loss, you know what it meant to you and how close you came to becoming one. Now that you have truly experienced this wonderful relationship, you can say that the dog was part of your family.

Dogs bring a lot to our lives and our family life, but sometimes we forget them.

While dogs bring us unconditional love, there are many other real and tangible benefits to improving health, including mental, physical, social and emotional well-being.

1. improve your mental health.

Today, research shows that pets can improve our mental health. Many years ago, dogs were brought into psychiatric wards as a test to reassure patients and encourage cooperation. Today we know that dogs can dramatically improve our mood.

Have you ever asked your dog to bring you a ball to play with when you were feeling sad or depressed? How did you feel, especially when your dog panted and wagged his tail and looked you in the eye? Your mood has probably changed and you have started playing ball with your dog. This is a perfect example of how a dog can cause an automatic change of mood and get you out of a bad situation. Your dog's unconditional love for you will also cause positive chemicals to be released in the brain, thus avoiding the negative stress chemicals (such as cortisol) that occur in fight-or-flight syndrome. The experience of a positive event can significantly improve your mental health.

2. Improved emotional state.

Dogs can significantly improve the emotions of their owners. Have you ever had a dog that came to you automatically when you cried and licked your tears? Studies have shown that dogs are inherently sensitive to their owners' emotions, and that they respond easily to those emotions. Studies have shown that dog owners are happier than people without dogs.

3. help with physical health.

Studies have shown that people who have dogs as pets are healthier than people who do not have dogs. People who have dogs have a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. For people who suffer from certain diseases such as diabetes or epilepsy, their dogs can often help and warn owners when a negative incident is imminent - this can save their owner's life!

4. It helps with socialization and physical fitness.

Dogs can help defend against depression, anxiety, and panic. Having a dog to socialize with is a great way for many people to exercise.

Your dog's socialization is crucial to his health. It's a good reason to get out of the house and get some fresh air with your dog. Walking, jogging, running, and hiking are great ways to stay in shape and keep your dog fit. You can also make swimming and biking part of your routine. Many owners treat their dogs this way and keep you and your furry friend in shape.

Dogs are excellent creatures to improve people's lives. I hope everyone has a dog in their home, you won't regret it. I have always had a dog in my house and I cannot imagine living without one.
