If you’ve ever had a dog as a pet, you’d agree with me that they are one of the happiest animals on earth.
Dogs will turn almost every sad situation into a happy one.
Anxiety, simply defined as the feeling of worry or unease especially with uncertain situations is common among modern humans. In dealing with the fast-paced societies we live in, now and then, we might tend to feel to excessively worrying.
The very basic human interactions in institutions like school, workplaces, and even relationships, are top causes of anxiety. also, in other cases, anxiety might be triggered as a side effect to certain medication or illness.
Pretty much, it seems that one way or the other, man is bound to be struck with the uneasy feeling of anxiety and that fact is on its own stressful.
Some professionals suggest remedies like eating, exercising and getting more sleep as ways to fix anxiety. Some others may also suggest cutting off caffeinated foods and drinks as ways to curb anxiety. In reality, these remedies work as patients may report that their anxiety problems lessen after trying a remedy option.
Not too many people know this, however, but dogs can be one of the greatest remedies for human anxieties.
What dogs have taught me throughout the years is that despite what they go through, they find the willpower to move on. You might wonder how knowing this will help human anxiety problems and here’s how:
Whenever you feel the build-up of anxiety, remember what your dog does when you get back after leaving them at home all day? They may be anxious at first having been left alone but once they see you, every worry fades away to be replaced by happiness.
I’m not sure I captured this analogy aptly but I bet if you on a dog you’d understand better.
