Swiss Farmers Develop Unique 'Cow Therapy' to Deal with Stress


One new form of stress therapy is gaining popularity in Switzerland. Stressed out Swiss citizens are lining up to hug and pet cows on the grounds of the Zwygart family farm near Switzerland's Basel. The Zwygart farm offers cow therapy sessions, inspired by similar therapy techiques from the Netherlands, which help clients of all ages forget about everyday stresses by patting and cuddling the cute bovines while the calm and restive animals simply sit back and get pampered. The idea arrived to Sibylle after their cow gave birth to three triplets, a male and two females named Sven, Svea, and Svenja, who were destined for the slaughterhouse. Visitors are first taught about the animals and how to clean them, in order to ensure that both the animal and person are comfortable. The sessions last for two hours and cost about $50.

  • Pandemic Survival Guide: How To Deal When Work Is Grinding You Into Dust

    When work is overwhelming, it's tempting to berate yourself for not getting more done when you're off the clock. But according to Business Insider, psychotherapist Amy Morin says for many people, the secret to happiness isn't doing more--it's simplifying, and doing less. To give yourself the rest and peace you need to deal with a demanding job, start by decluttering your calendar, your obligations, and your environment. Cease unnecessary activities that sap your physical or emotional strength. Declutter your home so it's easy to find things, and fix or replace what's broken. Set up automatic habits that support you in health and reduce decision fatigue. Finally, eliminate everything in your environment that tempts you in ways you don't want to be tempted!

The app, which was unveiled at this year's International Green Week Fair in Berlin on Thursday, can control even the little details of the milking cows. Smart machines connected to the app allow farmers to remotely feed cows with fresh grass and a special milking robot even permits the cow to "choose" when it feels like being milked.
