THERA-PETS

Dogs aren’t the only animals that raise our oxytocin levels and calm our anxiety.

Cats do it too.

This is why we want to shine a little light on our other furry friends that are used as therapy animals.

Stroking or cuddling a cat can have a positive effect on your health.  Research shows that cats can relieve stress and lower blood pressure, and studies have found that the hormone oxytocin is released when we're around pets, triggering feelings of happiness.
With results like these, it's no wonder therapy cats are often taken to hospitals, nursing homes, schools and even prisons. But what does it take for a feline to become a certified therapy animal?

Cats are often taken to nursing homes and hospitals by groups like “Love on a Leash” and “Pet Partners” as a way to cheer up patients and lower blood pressure.

So next time you get the urge to cuddle up to something, give a cat a try. If you do it right, you’ll have a friend for life.

Football season is back--but leave all the stats and sports talk to the sports announcers. We want to talk about the stuff that makes watching football fun! The food, the beer, the parties---the  traditions!

Here's some stats and lists from a variety of sources:

THE WORST THINGS ABOUT THE NFL
(GuyCodeBlog.com)

While professional football is awesome – it’s not perfect.Here are some less-than-great things about the NFL:

Pregame shows – Lots of hot air … and commercials.

Sideline reporters – What do they bring to the table other than annoying interruptions of the action.

Special teams – Punts and kicks – especially extra points – are a total drag.

Official reviews – When the zebras go under the hood, the action grinds to a halt. 

STUDY: The Most Emotionally Unstable Fan Bases in the NFL (Wall Street Journal)

According to a new study from Emory University, the most emotionally unstable fans in the NFL are Oakland Raiders fans.

Here’s a rundown of the top five most unstable fan bases in the NFL:

  1. Oakland Raiders
  2. Pittsburgh Steelers
  3. New England Patriots
  4. Detroit Lions
  5. New Orleans Saints

On the other hand, here are the five most stable fan bases in the NFL:

  1. Dallas Cowboys
  2. Indianapolis Colts
  3. Philadelphia Eagles (really?)
  4. Houston Texans
  5. Atlanta Falcons

If you don’t check everything off your to-do list each day, you aren't alone. According to a recent survey, only 11 percent of professionals said they were able to complete all the items on their to-do list in an average workday. If you need some help staying focused, here’s a rundown of some important things productive people do to get it all done each day:

  • Write It Down – Believe it or not, you have a better chance of getting everything done if you write it down on paper, instead of entering it into your smartphone.
     
  • Add Structure – Flying by the seat of your pants might be fun, but structuring your day and blocking time off for single activities puts you on a fast track to success.
     
  • Prioritize Emergencies – Days are filled with distractions. There’s no getting away from it. To still get stuff done while being interrupted, it’s important to know that you don’t have to jump every time someone brings you a problem.

If you're starting college at the end of summer, you'll probably soon receive an email with the identity of your roommate. This randomly assigned person will be a huge factor in determining how much fun you'll have freshman year. There are potentially tens of thousands of guys it could be, but most freshmen are pretty similar, so here are some of the roommates you should be expecting...

1. The Shut-In

You may end up with a guy/girl who never seems to leave your dorm room. You know they go to class, yet somehow they are  always studying or playing video games in your tiny shared space. He'll likely grow up to be a lonely hoarder, which isn't your problem -- your problem is that bringing friends back to the room is impossible with him or her around.

2. In A Toxic Relationship

They're trying to make it work long-distance with a high school girlfriend, or maybe they even went to the same college for the sake of staying together. In the former scenario, you'll hear all of their fights over the phone; in the latter, you'll witness those fights in person, because she/he  (much like The Shut-In) won't ever leave your room. Either way, their relationship is obviously doomed, but it will take a whole year for them to figure it out.

Relieving stress (or downright avoiding it) while preparing to head back to school is key to actually having a good first week. If you go to school in a different city of state or if you don’t have your own apartment, back to school usually means packing and moving again. 

Stress can cause an array of problems on your body and mind, according to the Mayo Clinic it can even contribute to conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.Here are some helpful things to do to ease the stress of the new school year:
