Talking To Your Dog Is Good For Mental Health


Talking about your emotional problems and current emotional state is in itself a therapeutic activity. Confiding in a dog is, therefore, a way of managing a number of psychological problems.

Key takeaways:

• A dog serves the same function as a therapist or sympathetic family member if you confide in the dog.

• Children who suffered stressful events such as bereavement, instability, and illness were more likely to heal faster ifthey had strong relationships with their dogs.

• Adults experiencing negative emotions, especially females, tend to seek comfort by confiding in their dog.

 

If Freud was correct, and simply talking about your emotional state makes you feel better, this suggests that having a dog to talk tonight provide an initial opportunity to begin the psychological healing process in times of adversity.
