Do you lead a stressful life or have health issues? If so, then having an aquarium could have positive effects on your health.
Here’s more information:
- Several studies have proven that watching fish in an aquarium can lower blood pressure, decrease pulse rate, and reduce muscle tension. One study has shown that watching fish can calm children with ADHD, and additional research has shown that watching aquariums can improve the mental state and eating habits of the elderly. Further research has indicated that aquarium-watching also helps decrease disruptive behaviors in Alzheimer’s patients. Another study revealed that observing an aquarium before dental work is often as effective as hypnosis for reducing anxiety, and patients required less pain medication afterwards.
- Although countless studies have shown that owning a pet such as a cat or dog has health benefits, not everyone can accommodate or manage that type of pet. An aquarium is the perfect choice for apartment dwellers, people with physical limitations that may not allow them to exercise a dog properly, or simply for those who lead hectic lives but still desire a pet.
