Interacting with animals stimulates the heart

Effects of animal therapy

①Psychological effects
It has the effect of relieving tension and anxiety.
②Social effects
Animals can become an opportunity to interact with people, soften the atmosphere, and improve communication.
③Physiological effects
Petting an animal puts you in a relaxed state, stabilizing your blood pressure, controlling your heart rate, and reducing stress.

Effects on children

Interacting with animals that are smaller than you and cannot speak will help you develop compassion, kindness, and empathy for others. It also brings out children's social and cooperative skills. It is said that the period known as the ``socialization period,'' during which the human brain gains the ability to become accustomed to various things, ends by the age of 10. That is why it is highly expected that children have the opportunity to spend time with animals by the age of 10, which has a great impact on their brains and hearts, as a great educational effect.

Message from experts

Being with animals relaxes and heals
Research has shown that interacting with animals has positive effects such as relieving stress on the body and mind, and it is also used in medical institutions and welfare facilities as an animal care therapy. Animals don't speak, but they can be said to be silent counselors who can soothe people's hearts.
