“Go home and let your dog lick your face. Dog saliva is the most effective anti-depressant you can get without a prescription.”
I know that when I’m down on the floor with my pups romping around, bringing me their slimy, disgusting chew toys and licking my face with abandon, I feel good. And when we go for walks and Lily Pad trips over Betty Lou, or Betty pees on Lily’s foot, well, that’s just free entertainment.
As I write this, I am sitting on the sand at my favorite beach off the coast of Georgia, and this, too, feels good. My feet are in the sand (earthing), I’m breathing salt air (ions), and the people-watching is as entertaining as my pups at home.
Consider this: What’s in your bag o’ tools that helps you feel good? What is available to you, right now, that will put a smile on your face? My suggestion: do it. The more we feel good, the more good stuff we put out there, and the world becomes a better place.
