Stress and Emotional Support Animals

With the advent of the digitized age and the development of the smart phone came a new wave of young adults and adults suffering from extreme depression and anxiety. 

The internet and its tools to browse it have created an entire generation of disenfranchised young adults and teens, rendering them virtual hermits who are only comfortable behind a screen and have little interest in anything to do with the real world. Not only that, as the working world has become more stressful and everything has shifted toward being more financially orientated, people have become unable to relax or unwind, which is why stress and anxiety are more a modern issue and more relevant now than they ever have been in any other epoch. Here are some ways to cope with emotional stress.

Get an Emotional Support Animal

In recent years, the use of ESA’s, or Emotional Support Animals, has really taken off. Emotional Support Animals can be a huge relief from the misery of ordinary life and can really provide solace in a dark place. An ESA is often very affordable and a great way to reduce symptoms of stress or anxiety. An ESA for many is a gateway to fitness and socialization. Having the responsibility of a dog for example gets many owners out of the house and socializing at their local park with other dog owners.

It is always important when you purchase or adopt your ESA to make sure it has the temperament that fits you and doesn’t cause undue stress. Many clients adopt senior dogs from rescues as they are already trained in many cases. An ESA should be stress relieving and not a source of anxiety and stress, so for that reason, be certain from where you purchase your animal so you do not have to deal with the unwanted stress of having to get rid of it in the future because it has not been socialized or trained properly.

Get More Sleep

Very often we neglect our sleep and seldom do people get the amount that they need anymore. With digital media came an unrelenting obsession that consumes most people late into the night, rendering them unable to sleep, unable to function, and unable to go ten minutes without looking at a screen. This obsession with social media has left an entire generation walking around like zombies and completely unable to function in normal society without being glued and attached to the screens of their phones or social media devices.

Try to put your phone down and not look at it for at least two hours before you go to bed. By doing this you will allow your brain to shut down and drift off to sleep easier; when you stare at a screen before bed it means your brain does not shut down properly and thusly when you do try to go to sleep you are unable to because your brain has not shut down and is not ready to go to sleep. You should always give yourself a three to four-hour break from screens before you go to bed to stop yourself from struggling to sleep.

Eat a Healthier Diet

Some of the biggest contributing factors to a poor state of mental health are the lack of water intake and a poor diet. A poor diet combined with a state of constant dehydration is a recipe for emotional turmoil. The easiest way to keep yourself in good spirits and healthy is to eat healthier and drink more water. By drinking more water you allow your brain to function properly and by eating healthily you allow your gut to function. There is an abundance of studies that have proven your gut is like a second brain and has a serious impact on your mental wellbeing.

It can be difficult to start eating healthily when you feel rubbish all of the time but if you gradually wean yourself onto a good diet you will soon reap the rewards and start deriving innumerable benefits from it.

If you have been suffering from any symptoms of depression or anxiety you should consider getting an ESA to help cope with consult a clinical the symptoms of depression and anxiety that can ruin your life. There is nothing to be afraid of, tell somebody.

I was helped through the email process. The lady helping me did a great job through email. Online was a bit confusing for renewal. I couldn't find on the website where I could renew. It would be helpful if there was a way to do that when you pull up your membership to be able to go to renewal. I have fully appreciated this service. It has been a tremendous help in my travels that would have been difficult without being able to take my service animal.
