Understanding Pets and Mental Health

There are so many different ways that you can improve your mental health. At Avalon Malibu, one of our favorite ways to improve mental health is having a pet! Pets can be a great addition to your daily routine and they can even give you a mental health boost. Let’s go over one of our favorite topics: pets and mental health.

Pets and Mental Health

There are a few key ways in which pets can be very beneficial for someone’s mental health and overall well-being. Below are some of the top reasons why you should consider getting a pet if you’re dealing with mental health struggles.


Pets can provide you with a healthy source of motivation. If you struggle to get out of bed in the morning, your pet can provide you with a reason to do so. Pets can also help you get outside and get some exercise, so that’s another important factor to consider.


Loneliness is something that impacts many people and it can have a significant impact on someone’s mental health. Pets can provide an important source of companionship. If you work from home or spend a lot of time at home, then it can be helpful to have a pet there with you.

Having a constant source of companionship (such as a pet) can significantly improve someone’s mental health, so this is an important factor to consider if you’re thinking about possibly getting a pet.
