Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it.

Can I be totally honest? The idea of having to homeschool my kids terrifies me. Mostly because I don’t know if I can give them everything that they get at school. We rely so much on our teachers because they are AMAZING at what they do. We are going to try to make sure we make enough time in each day for every subject. I also want to make sure we incorporate some fun arts and crafts projects and outdoor time. ⁣

We are grateful for the schools providing a list of online resources. I can only hope that we can keep them on the right track. ⁣

Do Dogs Help People With Anxiety?

If You Love It, Share It!

I had planned on writing this post for about a week. I sat down to get started yesterday evening and noticed that our new puppy, Elle, had a lump on the side of her face. We immediately realized she must have been stung by a bee. Within minutes, her eyes started to swell. She was visibly uncomfortable, rubbing her face on the ground as if she was trying to scratch an itch. We dropped everything and rushed her to the nearest vet. On the way there, I was panicked. I could feel my anxiety level rising yet I couldn’t help but laugh. Not because of the situation of course, but because of the irony of it all. Here I was, about to write about the ways that having a dog can help with my anxiety and I was on my way to a panic attack, because of that same beautiful dog.

So… Do Dogs Help People With Anxiety?

Obviously, getting a dog didn’t magically cure my panic disorder, but I can see why so many people believe that having a dog can help people with both anxiety and depression.

When I feel a panic attack coming on, the best thing anyone can do is distract me. They say the best way to fight anxiety is to live your life. Find a hobby that holds your attention, or an activity that you can become absorbed in. Could there be a better, sweeter distraction than a dog? Whether you are feeding, petting, walking or just enjoying your new companion, you are distracting yourself from any fears that may build in your head. You can’t worry about anything if you’re too busy living and loving.

While a similar argument could be made for people, dogs provide protection and comfort, without the drama that people usually present. This is especially necessary for those suffering from anxiety. The unconditional love you get from a dog can’t help but make you happy. Research also shows oxytocin is released and stress hormones decrease when we are petting a dog.  For me, petting Elle calms me down. For those moments, I’m only thinking of her and not overwhelming myself with my chores, my worries or my fears.

Dogs aren’t able to do most things for themselves, so there is always a sense of urgency for the people who take care of them. They need to be fed, walked, bathed, brushed, etc. Having these daily tasks to do, gives their owners a sense of feeling needed and gives them a purpose. Having this routine can completely change the mindset of someone who suffers from anxiety or depression.

Research shows that regular exercise can increase serotonin levels in your brain, lower your blood pressure and help you sleep better. All of these things help your overall mood and can help lower your anxiety level. For me, the problem was making the time to do the exercise. Having a dog has introduced an exercise routine into my life that I have to make time for. Whether we are walking around the block, running around the yard, playing fetch or tossing a frisbee, having a dog means you are exercising daily and most of the time, you don’t even realize it.

Do you need an emotional support dog?

Update on Elle

I’m happy to report that Elle is feeling much better today. The swelling has gone down considerably and we know what to do if she should happen to get stung again (but let’s hope those bees keep their distance). I should mention that my Mama bear feelings took over my feelings of anxiety quickly, especially once we arrived at the veterinarian’s office. All I could think about was making sure she felt safe and was well taken care of. Elle has become like another child to me and I’m so grateful for all of the lessons she’ll teach me and the love that she has and will bring to our family.

If you suffer from anxiety, do you find that a pet helps keep you grounded? Comment below! I’d love to hear from you!

    Dogs are emotional creatures. Of course they support our emotional health! Any pet is a great way to lower our stress.

    I think they do. Based on my experience with my fur baby, he can sense that something is not right. He would lay beside me on the floor and rest his head on my feet. He would even follow me to the toilet to check if everything is okay. He keeps me company and cuddles up when I am going through some “not so pleasant” days.

    I’m glad Elle is feeling better. We have a dog and a cat and I find they do help relax me. Their cuddles do wonders.

  • REESA LEWANDOWSKI

    YES! The answer is yes! The fact that my dog is just there for me with no questions asked is one of the main reasons.

    Dogs are proven to be the best pal and best companion especially those with anxiety. They help to keep you calm and at ease and they know if something is wrong.

    Absolutely, on both sides! As pet parents, we certainly get anxious and worried when our pets get sick or injured. But our fur babies definitely help relieve anxiety and depression, and typically bring smiles to our faces. We have 4 dogs and 8 cats – all rescues – and each of them has a unique personality and their own special characteristics. I love our fur babies!

  • aileen adalid

  • David Elliott

    I think my pet really knows how to read my emotional states. So in that way, he knows when to come when I am experiencing anxiety. And he definitely helps out.

  • Monidipa Dutta

    Dogs, in particular, can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve your cardiovascular health. Caring for a dog can help children grow up more secure and active. Dogs also provide valuable companionship for older adults.

  • Dalene Ekirapa

    When anxious, it’s always best to find something to distract you before you can fall into depression so for sure, I’ll agree that with dogs around, that’s sorted.

  • Gladys Nava

    Really?! That was amazing to know all that from you. “Dogs are man’s best friend” that is the common phrase about the dog, isn’t it? And I do believe also that dogs can help people anxiety.

  • Terri Beavers
    January 10, 2019

    Dogs do help people with anxiety I believe. I have chronic pain due to failed back surgery and my physician recommended I get a little dog. He has really helped me a lot and I went from being bed bound to getting back part of my life back because I’d have to get up to let him out. And one step led to another and another and today I’m giving him 100% of the credit. Laughing at his silliness is another way my anxiety takes a back burner.

  • candy

    Well of course they do. We even take dogs into our local nursing homes to help calm and make the older ones happy. They love petting and talking to the dogs.
