In this video, we’re going to talk about the mental health benefits of having a pet. Did you know what 96% of pet owners consider their pet as a member of the family?

Research shows three major mental health benefits of having a pet. Pets can…
• Lower stress
• Rid anxiety
• Rid depression symptoms

The reason pets have this effect on people is for five primary reasons. Having a pet can…
1. Lower your cortisol levels - cortisol is known as the “stress hormone”
2. Lower your blood pressure levels
3. Increase your levels of oxytocin - this can improve your sense of wellbeing and support pregnant mothers
4. Increase endorphins - this helps minimize discomfort and maximize pleasure
5. Boost dopamine - this is a pleasure hormone that helps decrease stress and anxiety

Let me know in the comments below if you feel that your pet has improved your mental health.
