The Ameowzing Pets

By Marvie C. Paraiso

Having pets around may help reduce stress, improve heart health, and aid in kids’ emotional and social skills, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Aside from this, interacting with animals has been known to decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure. Other studies also show that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support, and boost your mood.

Acknowledging how pets greatly contribute to our employees’ mental wellness, NLEX Corporation celebrated the National Pet Week last April 24-28, 2023 with the theme, “#NLEXAmeowzing.” Our employees got to showcase their beloved pets’ talents by posting their videos and photos on our Northloop page. Here are some of their adorable moments posted by their hoomans:


Marvie C. Paraiso, Human Resources and Administration. Marvie can usually be found looking at the skies with earphones in her ears and wandering off in her wonderland. She loves stories that tinker with her curious mind and make her belly chuckle. She enjoys the sound of music, raindrops, and laughter and the thrill of adventures and the sceneries of a long tiring trip—actually, she relishes it more than the journey’s end.
