In continuation of the 8 top things that can make us happy, today we are going to be discussing the subject, Petting a pet.
Having a pet is a choice. Let me share my own experience.
Initially I was petrified of pets. Then we started getting orders to shoot pets and I used to cordon off myself from the shoot floor. And then came my first pet, Azhagi. I was still getting used to a fur child around. And then came my Gunda – my life changed.
My life changed at so many different levels. I got over my fear and I let them into my life. Then I realised what I had missed all these years. The very presence of these pets, brought a lot of calmness and with that calmness came a lot of happiness.
The happy hormones that get kicked in are Serotonin & Oxytocin. Serotonin is a stress hormone that helps fight depression & Oxytocin is called the love and affection hormone.
There are many things that one can do to bring happiness… Kolam is one of them.
