Pet health can be a good excuse to keep yourself in tip top form! I’ve read recently that people who own pets tend to be calmer, happier and hence healthier humans. Add a little outdoor exercise to that idea and you have a practically unbeatable way to stay in shape.
Besides, dogs have to go on walks anyway. Why not take your best friend to the beach, or on a long walk in the country? Both of you will benefit in more ways than one. Not only are you getting some great exercise, but you can relax your mind at the same time.
And that black lab probably gets a little stressed out when you’re at work- so it can be a relaxing and completely enjoyable experience for both of you. Simple, fun and valuable. Pet health and human health together!
