How can Funny Animal Videos Cheer Up Your Mood?
The lock down might have done more harm than good, considering that an empty mind is quoted to be the devil’s workshop. And the sudden onslaught of nothingness to do had the whole world scrabbling to find anchors
Though the initial couple of months of the lockdown might have looked like a sudden, unexpected vacation with a bucketload of rules, it still gave us more than enough time to do or consider doing that thing we had always put off.
And then the boredom set in, and for me it meant I rediscovered the joys of meaningless browsing after high school once again. The internet is a large place. And somehow I wound up falling in love with animal videos. Being somewhat of an introvert myself, both with humans and animals, it was quite unexpected to suddenly pour over the animal videos my friend used to incessantly text me. And then voluntarily search through for more.
I mean it’s hilarious right. Watching a puppy hug a duck and get possessive over it. A tiny baby monkey eating a banana was hands down the funniest thing I had watched the last month, and had me gasping for breath in the middle of the day.
As fairly new introductions into the planet, and arguably the most intelligent species, humans often forget that we once shared the DNA of an ape, once upon a time. And at one point of time, the apes and the humans had the same grandmother. For those of you who have read the Homo Sapiens, yes, I picked that line off of the book. Man, that was one good enlightening read.
Science Backs the Theory that Watching Funny Animal Videos Uplifts Human Minds
And now we have got science telling us that while we always cheered up watching animal videos, it is a legitimately uplifting thing. And if you ask me, I think the ability to understand science or at least pretend to understand science is what set us apart from the apes all that time ago.
While you might find several humans funny, we have now discovered a lieu of funny animals, and that is about one of the most precious things to discover.
While the world is split between dog and cat, and subsequently funny cat and dog videos, with dogs winning out, I am more of a funny cat videos-preferring person, myself.
However, I am on board to see all sorts of funny animal videos, be it funny dog videos, or the neighborhood cat funny videos. Oh, and I also absolutely love hyenas. Oh my god, their laugh is just precious. And I certainly hope my hyena laugh would get its due recognition someday as well.
Why you Should Definiely Watch that Funny Dog Video? Or Cat Video…
Psychologists have given up their equivalent of a thumbs saying that funny cat videos, dog videos, cat and dog videos, or any animal videos can help in the boosting of emotions within humans that strongly resemble happiness, joy, and other positive emotions.
“Watching cute content online is easy and accessible, and has been shown to neutralize negative emotions such as fear, anger, and disappointment,” says a renowned psychologist from the University of California.
One of the most interesting theories I read about why we love to watch animal videos and can’t get enough of them is attributed to us forging a sort of connection or understanding. Man has stood apart due to his various abilities. And all through life, he is expected to relate to other fellow humans. However, when you see animals doing things that are typically associated with human behavior, we instantly relate to it. After all, art has a universal language. This spark of connection or understanding has us sending the video to our friends and family.
Another obvious but to-be mentioned reason as to why funny animal pictures and funny animal videos are forever trending is due to their sheer adorability and hilarity.
The trend of animal videos skyrocketed out of the blue with dozens of videos with funny animals captioned funny cat videos 2020 started cropping up in everyone’s feed, rendering it nearly impossible to scroll past without watching at least two funny pets videos a day.
My favorite funny pet videos include those videos that includes the scrabblig of a pet cat funny, chasing the speck of light. Or the videos where funny puppies in cute little tutus try to keep all of your attention on them. Or the one of the elephant painting, which quite honesty puts my drawing skills to shame. And pretty birds receiving more action than me for the past half decade.
However it is proven that by watching images and videos of funny animals for a period of time can visibly affect an individual’s blood pressure, heart rate and anxiety.
