We are all stressed out these days. The pandemic, job changes, gun violence across the nation, road rage, inflation, and just the overall state of our nation seem to have us all on edge.

Given that the majority of us are stressed to the max, what do you think of when you think of stress relievers? Aside from exercise, yoga, breathing techniques, the possible use of pharmaceuticals, etc, pets are a nice distraction from everyday life. A lot of times, they seem to know when you are down or having a bad day and you just need to cuddle about it for a while. You come home from an extremely stressful day and "Snowball" or "Fido" look up at you, immediately sense your state of being, then begin the cuddling or snuggling process until all things are better.

According to an article written by Eileen Abbott, de-stressing with a baby goat is "foolproof." Fortunately for us, we have a place a bit closer that can provide that same "foolproof" goat-snuggling therapy. Syman Says Farms is located at 279 Buckley Road in Salem, CT and goat-snuggling is happening. I am thinking about taking the whole crew over in the station vehicle and spending the whole day snuggling goats.

Syman Says Farms is a family farm established in 2012 in Salem, Connecticut, and has special goat snuggling sessions that go on through Labor Day. They have one hour goat snuggling sessions for just yourself or a group of up to 25 and they are rain or shine so dress appropriately. They also have some other suggestions, tips, and other information you will need on their website.

I have always enjoyed using the GOAT acronym (Greatest Of All Time) and maybe goat-snuggling is the GOAT stress relieving tool.
