My favorite Anxiety Relievers

After  yesterday’s post about relaxation, I realized I left out an important part of my own relaxation/anxiety management plan:   anxiety relief  

I could pet these guys for hours, and honestly sometimes I almost do.

  Settling in for a good pet/cuddle session with my hounds not only lowers their anxiety, but my own as well. I think there is actually scientific proof about how petting a dog lowers blood pressure and releases oxytocin. But you know what? Instead of looking that up and linking it here, I think I’m just going to go pet my dogs and experience the results.   May you too have someone warm and cute to cuddle with tonight.]]>
