Snuggle a puppy

Man's best friend, you can say that again! Human-animal interaction is an irreplaceable form of communication that can benefit anyone, no matter the species. And that’s not just observation – research says there’s an actual physical reaction that happens in your body when you and Fido interact. Dogs are full of love, and sometimes that's exactly what you need. So take this knowledge, get to the nearest animal shelter, and start snuggling. Consider it a twofer: your outlet for happy vibes, and your favorite new volunteer organization.
