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.

2-Combat loneliness.

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!
