A pet is much more than an animal who you care for. A pet is a family member, a sibling, a child and sometimes your pet is the only reason to keep going on. Enough has been written and said about pets and why having one is essential but just as a reminder for this Pets Day, here are 5 reasons to get a pet asap.

Pets help in lowering your blood pressure

Having a pet can actually lift your spirits

Having a pet can actually lift your spirits. Studies have shown that people who have pets generally have a lower blood pressure than those who don't. The kind of exuberance and energy a pet brings into someone's life is unmatched and couple that with the leg work required to keep up with a pet and you've got yourself a natural remedy for blood pressure.

Pets cheer you up and help deal with depression

Pets help you deal with depression

This has been one of the most talked about things. Having a pet actually forces you to be more active, it becomes a necessity, it also means that no matter how shitty of a day you've had your pal will always be waiting for you with a ton of love to shower. The physical activity you do while walking your pet, playing with them or amusing them releases endorphins in your brain which can instantly help to lighten your mood.

Caring for pets actually make you a better human being

Caring for another being other than yourself turns you into a better human

Humans are inherently selfish. The Darwinian theory: survival of the fittest, proves that humans are competitive, brutal and exceptionally self centered, hence caring for another being other than yourself turns you into a better human. People with pets are genuinely nicer than those without, not that you won't meet a sour dog owner once in a while. Having a pet also makes you warmer and this is why so many people respond to the social media and tinder profiles of people with pets. *wink wink*

Children who grow up with pets are more peceptive to other people's feelings

Pets make kids more intuitive

Another reason to introduce a pet into your family's life. It is also been observed that kids who grow up with pets, turn out to become more perceptive human beings. They are much kinder, empathetic since caring for a being that cannot express his feeling with a language makes them way more intuitive and understanding. Specially Abled children benefit a lot from pet. Pets especially help those on the spectrum become more social and less awkward around people.

A pet can prove to be the most loyal companion

A pet accepts you no matter what

A pet will always love you no matter what, even if you're having a crappy time and not showering your pet with love and adoration, the pet will do that for you. Unlike your exes and the judgemental society a pet accepts you no matter who you are and no matter how you behave. We've heard so many stories of pets helping people recover from physical injuries, saving people's lives and becoming the reason someone wakes up in the morning.

Aren't these reasons enough to get yourself a pet. This pet day adopt a pet and spread a little more joy in the world.
