What do puppies have to do with getting a good night sleep?

· Sleep,anxiety,pets

You may be wondering, what do puppies have to do with getting a good night sleep? Quite a lot, actually. What did you do when you saw the above image of this adorable puppy? Chances are you smiled and felt warm and happy on the inside. Photos of puppies and kittens are among the most widely viewed and shared images on the internet and with good reason. They make us happy.

Owning pets and even looking at images of cute animals have been proven to lower our stress, boost our immunity, and decrease our chances of having a heart attack. As the article, 5 Ways Pets Can Improve Your Health, from Web MD puts it: "we literally feel the love" from our animals.

If you don't have a pet, now may be a great time to adopt your next best friend from your local shelter or Humane Society. You can always "borrow' a friend or neighbor's dog and take it for a walk (exercise, fresh air, companionship, and rest well at night)... a win win!  

I don't have a dog but this is my cat Mew. He rarely leaves my side and I just took this photo of him a few minutes ago while writing this post (he is underneath my desk at my feet)...
