Humans live a hurried existence, and sometimes it may seem as though our lives fly past us at warp speed while we barely manage to survive our exhausted and lonely states. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can take a few cues from our animal kingdom brethren to improve our lives and improve our humanity.
Taking regular naps and exercising may seem like sterile, often-repeated medical advice. But these are both things that animals do every day as a matter of existence. They also form strong social bonds, which helps them to maintain their societies. Imagine how much better our lives would be if we were happy, healthy, and had good friends.
One other key to well-being we can learn from animals is to practice mindfulness. It can actually change the way you perceive the passage of time, which can improve your stress levels and overall quality of life.
