6 Life Lessons From Cats To Stay Happy And Healthy
Your furry feline friend does a lot more than give you company. Yes, your cat can teach you invaluable tricks to lead a happy and healthy life. You need to watch them closely; they have plenty of life lessons. Let's dive into some...
Don't ignore personal hygiene.
How many times do you spot your cat cleaning itself in a day? Cats are obsessed with their cleanliness. And they want to look their best.
Well, you don't have to take it to that extreme. But, taking your shower every day, washing your hands often, and wearing clean clothes would be enough.
That way, you will keep diseases at bay. Plus, you will also look your best.
Nothing comes before sleep.
Your kitty turns into a ball of energy when it's hungry or playful. But then you observe that the little creature sleeps a little too much. And they hate disturbance while sleeping.
50% of cats sleep 12 to 18 hours a day. While it's normal for them, you don't have to sleep that much. But make sure you get at least 7 hours of undisturbed sleep daily.
When you are well-rested, you will be bustling with energy, and your productivity will boom. But sleep deprivation can make you grumpy, just like when your kitty gets angry. And it can lead to other health complications too.
Eat more fish.
Your cat never seems to have enough fish. It can devour anything fishy within moments.
You can follow your cat's example too! Fish is super nutritious and contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and healthy fats. They ensure you have a healthy heart.
But what if you are vegetarian or vegan? No worries. You can include other sources of Omega fatty acids in your diet. (Remember to thank your feline friend later!)
Soak in the sun.
You often see your cat sitting near a sunlit window and rolling in a playful mood. It also goes out to bask in the sun. Isn't that an excellent reminder to leave your desk and go out at times for some fresh air and sunshine?
Reminder from your pawtective friend – Don't forget to wear sunscreen before going out. You will end up getting sunburns.
Stretch to fetch good health.
Do you envy how flexible your cat is? Start stretching regularly.
Don't try to imitate your cat's poses. You might break your bones and land up in a hospital. But try to exercise for at least 30 minutes every day.
Research shows physical activity maintains proper blood circulation in your body and keeps diseases away. Most diseases are linked to our sedentary lifestyle.
So keep your phone away, get up from that couch, and put on your running shoes. You can go for a walk every day. Even joining a yoga class can be exciting.
