It is a known fact that pets do tend to be quite good for our mental health, emotional health and our overall well-being. But in order to truly benefit from the company of a pet, you need to choose one that will be suit your needs and requirements appropriately and will also be compatible with lifestyle.
If you require little physical activity: If you are an individual who spends most of their time at home and choose not to engage in any kind of wellness workplace programs, then opt for pets that enjoy staying in and prefer basking in the coziness of the home setting. A few examples of such pets include a cat, fish, bunny etc.
If you are looking for an activity partner: People who are active and tend to engage in wellness workplace programs or outdoor activities regularly, for instance jogging or walking, then opting for pets that love outdoor exercise will be the best option for you. The best pets to have for this purpose are dogs!
If you have children or elderly in the house: If you have children or elderly living with you then you need to take into consideration the activity level of your pet and its size. For children it’s best to stick to smaller pets like kittens and puppies and if you have elderly around then stick to docile pets like turtles, fish etc.
