Comment on the following statement:
|Having pets helps to reduce stress.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that pets help to reduce stress whereas others don’t agree.
I think that pets help to reduce stress indeed. First of all, one of the main causes of stress is focusing on something that you don’t want to deal with. When you see a pet you change your focus. Secondly, pets are always glad to see you. It gives a lot of positive emotions to the owners and positive emotions reduce stress. You can also play with your pet and this action is really stress reducing.
At the same time there’re people who say that pets take a lot of time and bring a lot of troubles. If it’s a dog, you have to walk him. If it’s a cat, he will scratch your furniture and his fur will be everywhere. Hamsters or rats smell.
In my opinion these people have a point. Pets might bring some problems. Nevertheless, people usually don’t mind dealing with them. I like to walk my dog. My friend combs out the fur of her cat and made special thing for sharpening his claws so he doesn’t screw her furniture.
In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support pet stress reduce influence against those that say that pets cause stress, we'll see the facts that support pets’ usefulness seriously outweigh troubles that they might bring
