Health Tips from Dogs: What We Can Learn from Our Furry Friends?
Those of us that own and love dogs know how important it is to take them to the veterinarian, give them baths, walk them, and constantly look for signs of any disease or discomfort. However, what most of us don’t know is the fact that our dogs have a few health tricks up their non-existent sleeves to teach us as well! So let’s now take a close look at these five healthy lifestyle tips, which we can all learn from our canine friends.
Workout like Your Dog
Well, not exactly, but you probably know where we are going with this. Every healthy dog that I have ever seen, loves going out and playing. They need the exercise and they love every bit of it. If you can share even half of the enthusiasm that your dog shows towards outdoor activities, running around and playing, you will without a shred of doubt become a very fit and healthy man/woman.
Eat Like Your Dog
Don’t worry – you won’t have to eat dog food because we are talking only about the portions here. In the same way that we make sure that our dogs are not overfed or underfed, we need to do the same as well to keep our weight in check. Also, just like we use Canna-Pet supplements to keep our dog healthy, it’s important that we supplement our own diets sufficiently with necessary vitamins and other nutrients, especially as we begin to age.
Sleep Like Your Dog
It doesn’t matter how energetic and playful your dog is, he/she will make sure that sleep deprivation is never a problem for him/her and we can all take a cue from that. Sleep deprivation is one of the biggest problems in our busy lives today and it has established itself as one of the prime obstacles in the path of leading a healthy life.
Forgive Like a Dog
If you take a look at any one of the hundreds of videos circulating on social media and YouTube about rescued dogs, you will realize that even after years of abuse and mistreatment, most dogs eventually get over their mistrust and fear of human beings and start to trust and love the people around them once again. Even in our personal experience, most of us have seen that dogs don’t usually hold grudges and if we could show the same optimism, our lives would be stress-free and much happier.
Appreciate Like Your Dog
When you feed a pack of biscuits to a stray dog on the street, it will acknowledge your act of kindness by wagging its tail, rubbing its head against you, and even trying to lick you (which you should not allow for health hazards). When you get home after a day’s work, your dog will jump up and try to show his/her affection towards you in every possible way. All of these actions are shows of appreciation for your acts of kindness and, sometimes, just for being there. It has been proven beyond doubt that human relationships full of appreciation are usually the strongest and prove to be the most rewarding. Appreciation for even regular activities contributes towards the psychological well-being for both us and those around us.
A person can truly be considered healthy if he/she is taking care of both the physical and the psychological aspects of their lives, and that’s exactly what dogs teach us to do if you pay just a little bit of attention.
