Feel Good Friday: Cute Animal Videos
Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed or stressed, I love watching cute animal videos. There's something magical about how peaceful and heartwarming animals can be and they never fail to put a smile on my face. Recently, I stumbled upon some amazing videos on Instagram, and I want to share my top five favourites with you today! These are perfect to watch on a gloomy day or whenever you need a little pick-me-up.
Taking a break to do something that brings you joy is an important form of self-care! I hope these clips bring as much joy to your day as they do to mine :)
The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face are some of the best things. Smiling and laughing has been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress.
