Why babies and animals help you live longer

Hey, this is a fun fact: babies and animals help you live longer because looking at them triggers oxytocin release in your brain! In other words, when you look at these vulnerable, innocent creatures who just want to be fed and be loved, your brain automatically kicks into “loving”mode. “Loving” something or someone for at least a couple minutes every day on a regular basis has all sorts of nifty longevity power-ups, such as reducing your risk of heart disease and strengthening your immune system.

So, next time you simply just don’t have it in you to love a full-fledged human being, get your daily dose of lovin’ right here with these animal babies/baby animals I’ve specially curated just for you:
