My sons have sent me cute animal videos to cheer me up. According to the Kaiser newsletter, having a pet is effective to reduce stress. It helps lower blood pressure and patients who have had heart attacks have shown a significant difference between people who had pets and people who didn’t; one year later the death rate was 1 to 5. With pets people can increase activity level, get comfort and encouragement, and help them connect to the outer world.
For me, an animal lover, the videos my sons send are absolutely a part of healing.
