It also happens to you to have days or even periods in which you feel melancholy or sad?
Some studies have shown that in the winter months, humans tend to be sadder. Cold, long gone Christmas holidays, daily routine, help to create a state of in man sadness and melancholy.
It is true that unfortunately there are situations that are not dictated only by the climate or the temperature, but by personal facts and which cause a human being stress which can sometimes become harmful for the body itself.
How to relieve stress?
Many recommend relaxing by listening to the sounds of nature, the sea or birdsong and above all it has been shown that the cat's purr greatly reduces stress in humans.
This theory is confirmed by a study conducted by an international animal rights organization, namely the "Cat Protection League" and the "Mental Health" foundation which, by collecting the necessary data, established that 87% of cat owners benefit from listening to the own cat doing the purr.
But why are purring a real cure-all for human well-being?
The reason seems to lie in the repetitiveness and in the uniformity of the sound that is emitted by the cat. This causes in man a relaxation of the nerves and the relaxation, accumulated in the muscles, of tensions.
The frequency of the sound emitted during the purr was found to be around 20 and 140 Hertz. This explains why cats purring are anxiolytic.
It has also been shown that thanks to this frequency, the heartbeat the risk of serious heart disease is regularized and reduced by almost 40%. They are also ideal for maintaining the blood pressure in normal reference values. The frequencies emitted by the cat are the same that are used in the medical field to accelerate the healing process after fractures of various importance. In fact, frequencies from 25 to 50 Hz or from 100 to 200 Hz are used.
We can conclude by saying that purring or at least having a cat in general eases our tensions after a hard period of stress. In addition to the purr, the mere fact that he comes to welcome us as soon as we return home after a busy day, makes us forget all the problems we have for a while!
