#MentalHealthMonth : [Animal Companionship]⁣⠀⠀.⠀These two. They're the most entertaining cats I've ever had! My husband named them Bonnie and Clyde, and they definitely act like outlaws! Clyde instigates the crimes, and Bonnie goes along with whatever's going down. They're always up to something. 😈 Except for the vet bills from Clyde's antics (swallowing ribbon, a suction cup, and rubber band, to name a few…), we wouldn't change a thing. ⠀.⠀DID YOU KNOW? The company of animals – whether as pets or service animals – can have a huge impact on your quality of life and ability to recover from illnesses. Pets can comfort us and help us to live mentally healthier lives.⠀.⠀SCIENCE SAYS OWNING A PET CAN HELP: ⠀.⠀Improve cardiovascular health and physical activity.⠀.⠀Decrease stress and lower blood pressure.⠀.⠀Reduce loneliness, which increases the risk of developing many chronic health conditions.⠀.⠀It's no wonder 70% of U.S. households (84.6 million) own a pet! 🦄⠀.⠀ARE YOU STRUGGLING?⠀.⠀If you are taking steps to care for your mind, body, and soul but still feel like you're struggling with your mental health, visit mhascreening.org to check your symptoms.
