The Puppy Room

For the last several years Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia has set up a puppy room for stressed-out students. During exam week, students can swing by to play with different affectionate breeds, says Therapeutic Paws of Canada, and cuddling with dogs will hopefully help the students chill out and lower their blood pressure. Other universities have done similar stress relievers. Even a few businesses have tried adding a de-stresser to the work environment.

Stress happens when the life we want collides with the life we have, When the effort we make to convince ourselves that we can manage to balance, and juggle, and compromise, overwhelms our ability to do so.

Everyone needs a place to relax and forget about reality.
