The Latest Covid Calming Technique: Cow Hugging

Cows are naturally maternal and love to hugged. Okay, maybe we made that first sentence up but people are hugging cows and it's making them feel better.

The latest wellness trend is making some people think, "Goat yoga? That's so 2020...I mean, July of 2020." Cows are naturally relaxed. They're large. They have a high body temperature and their heart rate is low. Hugging a big warm animal that's calm apparently helps the hugger feel calm.

These days we could all use a time out from what's been wrong (so much. so very much). If there are cows available and you have a cow costume maybe you can get your significant other to put it on and give them a squeeze. Hey, it couldn't hurt.
