Schedule An Animal Excursion!

33ac1f1ac90a3d863fa3bfad3abfae93-huge-ptIt's day 2 of the Pets to De-Stress challenge. 

Today we want you to think about scheduling an animal excursion. You don’t have to physically touch animals to reap the stress-reducing benefits. Today, think about where you can go when you need an animal antidote for stress. Then find time on your calendar this week to get there. Try some of these ideas:

  • Visit a zoo, farm, aquarium, or nature center.
  • Take a scenic drive in a place where you’re likely to see cows, sheep, or horses.
  • Head to a local park where you can pet other people’s dogs or see wildlife (like geese, turtles, or fish).
  • Find a stable that offers horseback riding lessons.

Post a photo of your trip in our Facebook group.
