Pets can bring more to your life than joy and happiness. Recent studies have shown that animals can contribute to long-term mental health, too!
Psychologically, animals have been shown to:
1-Increase sympathy and social interaction.
3-Soothe some brain diseases like Alzheimer's and autism, by providing memory and emotional stimulation.
Physically, animals' requirements will often get their owners to:
4-Leave the house or start a walk -- physical exercise is good for the brain!
5-Ease stress to the extent that their presence can even speed recovery from surgery/trauma.
So if you've been looking for another reason to add a new pet to your family, you can now say that it's good for your brain health, too!
