    Mused after… reading one more thought by David Robson on “resolutions” or as I call it, attempts to better ourselves. “When we lack compassion for our missteps, we are not only more likely to beat ourselves up, but also less likely to learn from our mistakes. This is because we assume it isn’t in our power to fix or change our problems when we believe they are inescapable parts of our character. It is only when we see our setbacks as a natural part of the human condition that we can find the resolve to chase our goals. To err, of course, is all too human. Self-forgiveness is both divine and constructive.”

    How dogs help us lead longer, healthier lives.

    Social psychologist Bruce Headey conducted a survey of Australian dog owners and found that they take fewer trips to the doctor, sleep better than non-dog owners and are less likely to be on heart medications.

    James Serpell from University of Pennsylvania conducted a study in the U.K. that found among dog and cat owners that there was a significant reduction in headaches, difficulty sleeping, indigestion, and sinus trouble after following first time pet owners for 10 months.

    The “Microbiota Hypothesis” suggests that dust from homes with dogs may influence the human immune response by changing the gut microbiome in ways that reduce the risk for allergies and asthma. Young children that grow up with dogs in the households are less likely to develop allergies, eczema or asthma.

    (Did You Know? A Swedish study of over 1000 7- and 8-year-olds found that those without pets, 49% developed allergies. The rate dropped to 43% for kids with one pet and 23% for those with three pets.)

    Both the Michigan School of Public Health and a study at Florida A & M found that dogs motivated those with chronic pain to get up and get moving which alleviated some of the pain. Pets also distracted their pain and improved their moods. Increasing their activity gave them a sense of hope and increased functionality.

    Research also suggests that a dog is associated with lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and type 2 diabetes by reducing stress. Dog ownership is associated with a 31% decreased risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
