Take a Bunny Break, Release Oxytocin

Okay everybody, stretch your arms to the ceiling, roll your shoulders forward and back, and by all means (please!) take a baby bunny/kitten break right here at your desk!

Want more? is pretty adorable too.

Oxytocin is that yummy hormone released when a woman looks into the face of her newborn, and it effects the “contractions of the myo-epithelial cells of the breast for the milk ejection reflex,” according to this site that explains the phenomenon. The hormone can also be released during sexual stimulation or intercourse. Enjoy!

These are a great destress break – and the g’ma of two nearly grown almost male cats, I never cease to be amazed at how entertainling they can be. One of them loves to have me throw water into the shower or tub so he can lick it. The other likes catching wadded up balls of paper when I am destroying paperwork for discard. ~ Go figure! ~ Joie>

This actually is “too” cute. No, not in a bad way. I don’t get tired of looking at adorable animal pics. My boys will love them, too.>
