fill your week with smiles!

MONDAY, APRIL 29 NATIONAL PEACE ROSE DAY Revel in bloom bliss! This gorgeous rose, which was given its name to commemorate the end of World War II, projects a simple yet elegant vibe, says floral expert Sharon McGukin, author of Flowers of the Heart. “The blend of yellow and pink reminds us of an early morning sunrise.” To give the roses a fully bloomed look, blow into the center of the flower when petals are soft. This encourages them to open more widely, says McGukin, who suggests cutting stems on an angle so they don’t stand flat on the bottom of the vase, allowing for more intake of water. FRIDAY, MAY 3 NATIONAL SPACE DAY Be amazed! Take time to marvel at the wonders of the universe by gazing at the stars. Jason Kendall of…

Keryn Denroche smiled as she ushered the two newest residents, Gracie and Peanut, into her British Columbia, Canada, barn. “You’ll be safe and happy here,” she whispered, watching in awe as the two cows nosed around their new home, sticking together as though they were attached at the hip.

But when Keryn had first laid eyes on the pair, their incredible connection was something she could palpably feel in her heart. Now, marveling as Peanut led Gracie around their new home, sticking close and showing her the way like a guide dog,…

how farm animal therapy brings on joy!

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) has huge benefits for humans and animals alike, according to a new study at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Their researchers discovered that people (of all ages) who spend as little as one hour engaging with farm animals showed better overall health, had a greater sense of self-worth, were more equipped to cope with stress and had a more positive, joyful outlook. The reason? Rebecca Johnson, Ph.D., head of veterinary medicine research at the University of Missouri in Columbia, explains that interacting with animals floods our brains with oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone,” which generates that loving, warm and fuzzy feeling. “Oxytocin not only makes us feel great,” she says, “it has powerful effects on the body’s ability to heal and to maintain overall health.” To…
