#1 – Get a Pet
Getting a pet? Seems like a lot of work and a weird measure to improve your life, but it’s not – it has been proven that owning a pet can lessen the stress levels, which results in a decrease of the production of cortisol, in reduced blood pressure and in a lower risk of suffering a heart attack.
Also having a pet is an excellent reason to exercise without even noticing you are working out. Being a pet owner helps with depression as well and that’s why so many people use therapy dogs as a means to control their anxieties. So, adopting a pet will make their lives better and yours as well beyond unconditional love.
