I was smiling. I had white fur all over my gray jeans, and drool on my hands.
I love dogs, but can't have one. I walk for at least 30 minutes right at sunset. And I always hope to see dogs out walking too, and pat them.
Why do dogs make us feel so good? Dogs are companions, sometimes assistant helpers, often get brought into hospitals, nursing homes to cheer up the patients. Some people will not fly on a plane unless they have their medical assistance dog with them.
Earlier in the morning, I read an article in the newspaper about science proving that touch, human or animal, causes our serotonin levels to rise. Serotonin is our "happy chemical". Not only does it make us happy, but is essential in treating cardiac problems, including a study that shows higher serotonin levels improve heart valves, especially the mitral valve. Doctors look for a way to raise serotonin levels, and all they need to do is hug, touch, or find a dog to pat for the patient. Well, I don't know if science can cure prolapsed mitral valves that way, but they are experimenting with it.
Patting dogs, getting a hug, improve serotonin levels. How does jade fit in here?
When you are wearing a jade bangle bracelet, you probably touch it during the day. The bangle edges touch your skin, acupoints during the day. When you touch your jade bangle bracelet, move it around on your wrist, you are getting pleasure, therefore raising your serotonin levels. And getting acupressure on major points in your wrist.
Another reason to not only wear a jade bangle bracelet all the time, but also get the one that fits closest to your wrist.
