  • and you are exhausted.

  • You had a brutal day of classes

  • punctuated by the world’s most gruelling workout.

  • Your muscles feel like jello

  • and your brain feels like mush.

  • Uhh! On a day like this,

  • nothing can make you feel better or can it.

  • or can it.

  • Actually, there’s something that can.

  • It’s fluffy and playful

  • and it has four legs.

  • Or maybe it’s feathery with two legs.

  • That’s right! You guess it!

  • On today’s Wellcast, well be talking about pets

  • and how they can actually improve your mood

  • and your health.

  • Hey, we are not telling you to just go out and buy a pet.

  • Instead, were gonna teach you

  • why spending time with cute little fuzzy animals

  • will actually improve your mental and physical health.

  • Well also help you figure out

  • how to spend time with animals

  • even if you can’t have a pet your own.

  • So, what can spending time with a pet do for you?

  • A study published by the Journal of Royal Society of Medicine in Jolly Old, England

  • that dog owners, cat owners, and owners of fluffy little hamsters,

  • generally found that minor ailments improved

  • when they spend time with their pets!

  • Furthermore, a study by the American Heart Association,

  • found that people’s blood pressure drops significantly by merely petting animals.

  • These could be any animals not just their own beloved pets.

  • How do we know? Well

  • researchers with the AMA

  • gave 48 volunteers a series of difficult math problems.

  • while measuring their blood pressure and other stress indicators.

  • Half of them were given a temporary pet to spend time with.

  • So, when the volunteers came back

  • to do more incredibly difficult Math problem six weeks later,

  • those who spend time with pets over the course of six weeks

  • didn’t show the kind of stress reactions that the pet free folks had.

  • They were more mellow, more calm,

  • better able to think rationally about the problem

  • than those who didn’t have any quality pet time.

  • Clearly, animals are awesome!

  • But, if youre not one of the 62% of American households who have a pet,

  • what should you do?

  • Well, we Wellcast have got a couple suggestions for you.

  • Pause and print out our PDF at watchwellcast.com

  • Got it?

  • Awesome!

  • This worksheet will teach you our four-legged method

  • to get you spending time with animals.

  • Now, leg one of our worksheet,

  • brainstorm

  • This is pretty straightforward.

  • Think of all the friends in your circle

  • and think of all the pets that they have.

  • Next, make a list of your top five favorite pets.

  • It sounds silly but don’t worry.

  • We have another leg for this.

  • Leg two, reach out.

  • Call up your friends and ask how you could get involved with their pet life.

  • Don’t forget! Pets are a big responsibility

  • and everybody needs help time to time.

  • So if you ask them if you could walk a dog once a week,

  • or maybe be the first person that they call when they go on vacation,

  • it won’t be that weird.

  • Leg three, volunteer!

  • Another great way to get quality animal time in

  • is to volunteer at your local animal shelter.

  • Not only are you going to be connecting with your community

  • but youll be connecting with a wonderful little puppy or kitten.

  • or something else that needs some TLC

  • and on top of all of that,

  • youll be lowering your blood pressure, and stress as well.

  • Not sure how to start?

  • Check out this National Registry of Animal Shelters

  • or look up a shelter on Google.

  • Write down their contact information on your worksheet

  • and then give them a call.

  • Leg four, schedule.

  • Once youve arranged the time to volunteer at a shelter,

  • schedule your quality pet dates around that

  • so call a buster’s person, soft person, and fluffy person.

  • and schedule some quality pet time.

  • Try for an hour a week just to start.

  • To recap,

  • today on Wellcast, we taught you

  • why spending some time with your favorite non-human cuddly friend

  • was actually beneficial to your health.

  • We also taught you a four-legged method

  • to get you to spend some animal quality time of your own

  • even if you don’t have a pet at home.
