You knew this post was coming…What do puppies do that are good reminders for us humans seeking health and happiness? Lots.
1. Drink lots of water.
Maggie guzzles water every time we give her the chance. That also means she pees a lot (and sometimes in the house) but she understands the importance of hydration.
2. Make your workout play and workout with people who are bigger and better than you.
Instead of just walking around the block like every other puppy, Maggie has already figured out the basics of fetch. She also likes to race the 95lb dog that lives next door. Making your workout fun makes it easy to stick to and having a workout buddy that is just a little faster and stronger keeps your pushing.
3. Get plenty of rest.
After plenty of play, Maggie goes to bed and doesn’t want to be disturbed. Sleep is crucial to happiness, cognitive function and weight loss. Maggie only weighs 7lbs so she doesn’t have to worry about the later but us humans need to keep an eye on that.
4. Focus on relationship building.
She is so darn cute, she is the talk of the neighborhood and is meeting lots of dog friends. She is slowly but surely getting to know us as well. She also knows to keep her distance from her enemies. Obviously, the goose still rules the roost. Its so important to maintain our friendships and continue to grow our old friendships. In fact, it might be the healthiest thing that a dog does!
