Secrets of Success

Stress Less



To take away stress and tension I remove myself from the situation by walking with Sparkie my puppy. Long walks soothe us both. Some how the fresh air and time spent with a friend makes for a better day. Unconditional Love can do wonders for ones morale emoticon

More Information:

Studies have proved that animals have a calming effect on people, they cheer people up. Some dog breeds have been taken to nursing homes and hospital wards. Some patients have gotten better just being around the animals. Dogs have also helped in diagnosis of some cancers.

    Retirement and moving away from the stress-producing environment helps even further. I rejoice that you have a puppy for your outlet.

    Focusing on what makes you happy rather than what is wrong with your environment goes a long way to enriching one's life. In here is "do what you love and the money will come".

    God bless you and the puppy that 'brung' you. - by SCOUT03
