It’s inevitable. We all have bad days. Some more than others. In fact I’m having an especially stressful day today.
No matter how bad your mood is there is usually something that can help eliviate it. Sometimes just blowing off steam helps. Other times a silly joke or a child giggling is enough to melt away your bad day. Often my mood improves when I spend some time playing with our dog or snuggling with one of our cats. A happy dog and a soft, fuzzy kitty is enough to make my mood improve. Even watching our fish peacefully swimming around their tank can take the edge off a bad day.
Did you know that even watching videos of puppies and kittens has been known to not only relieve stress but also help to increase concentration?
There are plenty of cute animal videos on YouTube. Instead of watching the same videos over and over again why not experience the cuteness first hand as it happens by watching LIVE webcams.
Thanks to Animal Planet L!VE you have your choice of any of their current 11 live camera to enjoy. They have live streaming of everything from baby chicks, calves and whales to penguins, kittens and puppies.
They even have a live jellyfish cam. I find them very relaxing to watch.
Here is a little more detail about some of their more unique offerings.
A childhood ant farm has nothing on this colony of leafcutter ants from Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium in New Orleans.
In one of several cams from explore.org‘s Pearls of the Planet collection, the sleek Beluga whales from Vancouver Aquarium are put in the spotlight, entrancing audiences.
Watch baby calves find their legs and explore a whole new world from the South Mountain Creamery in Middletown, Maryland.
Spring has sprung for these adorable chicks that, along with the calves, call the South Mountain Creamery home.
While feelings may be mixed on these creatures that have inhabited our planet since the Cretaceous period, viewers will be mesmerized by their activity and surprise setting inspired by the southern home of Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
One of my favorite live streaming cameras is of the wild birds. I love Bluebirds. They are so pretty.
The only downside to the live streaming cams is that sometimes the animals or critters are sleeping and are not very entertaining. The random commercials that pop up too can be a bit of a turn off, but I understand that they are needed to provide the live cams free for all to enjoy.
The next time you are having a bad day stop by the Kitten cam, or for those with a bit more of a quirky side, check out what those icky cockroaches are up to.
