The Pet Diaries reveals the secret to a good life balance and happy pets, including the family goat!

Balancing the demands of a busy life is not an easy task and can lead to chronic stress and long-term health problems. Good news is that pets can help their owners achieve a good life balance and in return, be happier themselves!

It’s Mental Health Awareness Month in October and The Pet Diaries is encouraging pet owners to have a good life balance by making time for their pet. The Pet Diaries is a free APP that helps pet lovers manage and track their fur babies’ wellbeing, from exercise and nutrition to appointments, events and more.

“We encourage pet owners to have a healthy life balance not just for their own health and well-being, but also for their companion animals, whether it be their dog, cat, bird or family goat,” said Stacey Gadway, the new CEO of The Pet Diaries.

“Research has unleashed many health and social benefits to owning pets1, including improving work life balance by enhancing our social life, helping to reduce stress, providing physical exercise, enhancing family bonding and promoting creativity,” said Stacey.

“Having a pet that we care for makes us feel wanted and needed and takes the focus away from our day-to-day life issues. And the more we spend time with our pet, the more relaxed we are the happier they are! Because a happy pet is a happy life!”
