Part of this counselor I give when I discuss becoming energized will be to be social – daily if at all possible. You know, get out with people, do things with family and friends, eat, drink, laugh, be joyous.
It is shown time and again through various studies that interacting with other people — be it a human or animal (more especially a mammal) — keeps our mind busy, our body healthy, and our soul soaring. This is the stuff that keeps us young, and might even help reverse the decay of aging — this is the stuff that makes us younger.
As of now, right now, I am adding an additional parameter to interacting – connect with animals. Having a pet may not match the way you live, though if it does the animal shelter has the ideal animal for you. Getting your own pet on your own home means you receive the frequent and routine joy of being loved up by an adoring animal. Even cats, who have the reputation for being indifferent to their people, do love their humans.
We are all aware of the necessity to give our animals good quality, natural animal feed, but how the feed is stored is equally as important.
If a pet does not fit into your strategy, consider other animal contact choices. Dog parks are an excellent way to interact with dogs and their owners. Offering to take your neighbor’s dog for a walk would get you exercising and interacting with all kinds.
Volunteer in the animal shelter to spend some time with the animals they’re caring for till their new owners are found. Those animals need socializing also, to be touched, to be interacted with as a portion of the health regime.
A normal dose of oxytocin – the love hormone – is delivered as easily from animal contact and interaction as it is from people. It can be even better since animals will not be distracted by their telephones or computers, won’t have to talk about themselves and their problems endlessly, or discuss religion and politics.
