Hi everybody, this week I am devoting my post to the humans out there. I have been hearing this word stress a lot lately. I am not sure exactly what it is. I have never experienced it myself, but I don't think it is a good thing. They often use this word with a phrase like, "I need to relax" or "This is driving me crazy". I know we pugs are pretty good a chilling out, and letting things roll off our fur. So I figured, maybe if these humans employed some pug wisdom to their lives, the stress would go away.
So here are a few pointers.
I invite all you pugs out there to share what helps you to relax and feel good too.
Together we can help our people prioritize the important things in life.
Take time for yourself. Even if it is only a minute or two at a time.
use that time to count your blessings...
like a good bowl of food. Eating well will give you the energy you need to make it through
Snuggle your pug. Studies show that just petting an animal can lower your blood pressure. As if you needed another excuse.
Surround yourself with good friends. No one wants to go it alone.
Don't forget to play.
(note sock monkey bed with his dehissed surgical wound, he is scheduled for surgery to repair the wound tomorrow)
Get your share of treats. No day is complete without at least one treat.
Keep the things you cherish close to you, they can always offer comfort.
Get plenty of rest.
I hope that you humans are able to add some of these activities to your daily routines.
I think you'll find that this thing you call stress will just melt away.
After all, we need you in tip top shape to cater to us pugs!
