Take time to distract yourself with videos of happy rescued animals

It’s vitally important that we take care of our mental health whilst in lockdown (tips and resources) and one of the best ways to do that is to distract oneself with videos of happy animals, either rescued or living free and in the wild. While we need to continue to advocate for the oppressed even under these circumstances (check out our recent blog post), that only applies if we’re feeling healthy enough, either mentally or physically, to do so. Taking care of ourselves is crucial; after all, we are animals too.
Take some time to relax with a cuppa or your drink of choice, take some deep, calming breaths and click away! You might even find that you want to share some of these on social media. Everybody is looking for cheerful distraction, and sharing videos of animals which society normally only thinks of as non-sentient collections of edible body parts is a gentle way to remind them that all animals want to live.
