Imagine a beautiful day by checking the animals at Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, feeling a little quieter and happier. Some science really exists.

The results of a well-being study carried out by the recent Detroit Sociological Society and Michigan State University researchers found that animal observation reduces stress levels.

According to news release, study participants were up to electrodes in a laboratory, due to oral maths testing and then asked to deliver a speech.

The participants were then grouped into three groups and showed a vision of a white white screen, Detroit traffic or animals at Detroit Zoo.

MSU scientists measured stress indicators, such as heart rate, skin sailing, and facial reaction. The results showed that the lowest levels of stress in the group showed animals.
