De-Stress Yourself Week #6: Play With A Pet

Welcome to my 2012 series “De-Stress Yourself!”  If you missed any others be sure to check them out!

My de-stressing tip for week #6 is something I try to do every day.  Statistics show that around 62% of American households have pets- most of which you can probably play with in some capacity.  (Even fish can be very relaxing to watch.)

Your de-stressing activity for the week is to play with a pet.

I have a cat named Bella.  While she occasionally drives me mad she can also be very relaxing.  (Total side note- have you ever seen Simon’s cat?  I post these videos on A Frugal Chick’s facebook page periodically.  This is the one that demonstrates my life on a regular basis.)

Take a little while and play with a pet.  Throw a ball with a dog, get a laser pointer with a cat or chase your gerbil around the house in a plastic ball.  If you don’t have a pet see if a friend will let you come over and borrow theirs!  I am sure many would be HAPPY to let you walk their dog or talk to their bird.

If you get a chance to hang out with your pet let me know about it!  What do you enjoy doing?
