A great way to relax at the end of your day is by cuddling with your pet. Whether it's a dog, cat or even a stuffed animal, cuddling is a must.
Cuddling releases oxytocin, which is a feel-good hormone, allowing you to feel at ease almost immediately. By cuddling, you can let your mind and body rest without worrying about everything you need to do. In fact, petting your furry family member also helps relieve stress and lowers your levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Another plus is that seeing your pet caring for you boosts your self-confidence. Don't have a pet? Don't fret, your favorite stuffed animal will do the trick! So go ahead and cuddle away!
