This Meditation Monday, we’re talking about those fuzzy, furry, feathery, finny friends in your house – your pets! Having a pet may help reduce stress and improve your mood. Interacting with pets may help release oxytocin, a brain chemical that promotes a positive mood, and having a pet may also help relieve stress by giving you purpose, keeping you active and providing companionship — all qualities that help reduce anxiety.
