All of us will have happened to return home with nerves on the surface or with a good dose of stress, caused by work, children, commitments …
And how many times has our beloved cat come to welcome us and a cuddle made us smile and made us ward off negative thoughts for a moment?
Studies have found that just the presence of a cat or a dog is enough to decrease cortisol levels. In fact, cortisol is the hormone that causes stress. And that's not all. In fact, it lowers cortisol, but it increases dopamine. That is a neurotransmitter that allows us to feel calm and safe. It also helps your heart rate stay regular.
And then, listen, listen, another experiment has shown that the love of an animal removes stress and daily tensions much more effectively than a husband or wife.
This was demonstrated with the following experiment:
240 couples were taken and they were subjected to different types of stress. The stress was both physical, such as dipping your hand for two minutes in freezing water, and psychological, ie solving mathematical problems of a certain complicity.
The heart rate and blood pressure of each of the participants were then measured. Scholars have been able to observe two different types of situations:
- The anxiety and tension did not decrease if the partner or spouse was present, on the contrary the participant made mathematical errors more easily
- The anxiety and tension decreased if a pet was present next to the participant
In conclusion, therefore, it can be said that an animal, be it cat or dog, fish or canary, helps to reduce tension and stress, much better than a partner or spouse.
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.
Are you under stress from the last days of school? Is your child, grandson starting to show signs of slowing down due to school stress? If you answered yes, this article is for you. In Australia, precisely in the Saint Francis Xavier College in Canberra, an experiment was conducted to alleviate, at least in part, the academic stress of students at the gates of the final exams.
According to a recent scientific study i cats relieve our suffering in case of loss or separation. It seems, in fact, that the presence of a feline is very useful when we are faced with the pain that comes from a loss or in general from a separation.
This is a topic that is still very widespread today. But exactly because cats are better than dogs ? We would like to clarify, of course, that by this we do not mean at all to mock the image of the dog, on the contrary, we believe that they are just like the cats of the fantastic animals.
Some owners love their pets so much that they can do anything to please them, to make them live the best life possible. In fact, the feline friends we see today in the image they live better of any human being on earth. Don't believe it? Wait and see what man is capable of … Real works of art that would embarrass the greatest architects that human history has known.
