Sometimes, the world can get us upset. Whether it’s the constant negative news cycle or something terrible happened in your personal life, there isn’t much we can do to avoid those feelings. Thankfully, one of the best remedies for a gloomy spirit already exists – baby animals!
Baby animals seem to be able to make us feel happy even in the worst moments of our lives.
There is a reason therapy puppies are brought into hospitals! It’s so well documented that Cancer.net, released a whole blog on it. They said:
Studies have shown that interacting with animals (even fish!) helps lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, and decrease depression. Scientists have also observed that interacting with animals increases levels of the hormone oxytocin. Oxytocin has a number of important effects on the body. It slows a person’s heart rate and breathing, reduces blood pressure, and inhibits the production of stress hormones. All of these changes help create a sense of calm and comfort.
If you need a pick-me-up, check out this adorable bat!
We don’t normally think of bats as cute animals, but after you see this video, you will fall in love – guaranteed. The bat, a flying fox, is named Miss Alicia and has been living with Denise Wade for quite some time. She lives in Queensland, Australia, and the poor bat had a nasty encounter with a car.
She is currently recovering and is expected to make a full recovery without any complications.
In the meantime, however, you definitely want to see as much footage of this adorable bat as you can. While she is recovering, she spends most of her time in this little blue towel, all snuggled up as Denise feeds her.
Flying foxes LOVE sweets!
They mostly eat fruit and nectar, giving them a huge sweet tooth that would rival any hungry humans! As it turns out, Miss Alicia LOVES to eat bananas! The ensuing cuteness is easily one of the most adorable things you could ever see in your life.
Her cheeks are so puffed out and she looks like a baby!
After her banana, she will definitely be getting a nice nap in. A banana for an animal that size is like eating a whole pizza by yourself! The best part about the whole scenario is that Miss Alicia will be able to be released back into the wild after she recovers without any issues. There weren’t any broken bones and she only had a slight concussion – it’s an incredible lucky scenario that could have turned out much worse.
While she is recovering, however, you better believe we want to see as many videos of her eating as possible!
If they are all going to be this cute, we hope that Denise records as many as possible – Miss Alicia is just too cute to not film her meals, especially since she won’t be there for long.
Make sure you check out the video of her eating the banana below for the ultimate cure for weekday blues!
