We won’t sugarcoat this: The news is really stressful right now. It’s stressful for you folks reading it and it’s stressful for us over here covering it. There are, of course, ways to manage your anxiety during a pandemic, and we really think you should check them out, but one of the best tools to manage stress is furrier and very accessible: Pets

Dogs, cats, and other pettable pals are truly man’s best friend when it comes to helping your stress level. Petting a furry friend like a dog can actually reduce stress and release happy chemicals like oxytocin into your brain. That’s GREAT for anxiety, blood pressure, you name it. Of course, not everyone has access to a dog or cat, so here are some pictures of them (and hot celebrities holding them) to ease your weary minds and hearts.

Let’s start with our king of good boys: Chris Evans.

This …Well. Sorta works.

Heck, we don’t even need these HUMANS. Look at this sweetie:

If you need further support, please consult fun places like the #DogsOfInstagram tag. Or you can do what I do when I’m feeling really bad and take things up a notch with, of course, YouTube videos of “Goats Screaming like humans.”

Same. goats, same.
