Do We Really Take Good Care Of Ourselves?

It may sound like a real obvious question, but once you start to think about it your answer may not be as plain and simple as you once thought. Do we really take good care of ourselves? Honestly, do you? At this time of year especially, we can start to see people struggling with common colds and illnesses, it’s a time of year where people get stressed out, or feel emotional. It’s a time of year of reflection, of looking forward to the new year ahead. Often, in so many situations and circumstances we can put ourselves right at the back of the priority list as we focus on others, on the festive period and our commitments. It’s now time to think about yourself. I wanted to share with you some of the ways you can take good care of yourself.





Our mental health


Your mental health is a huge part of our daily lives and we don’t realise that actually we need to take better care of our mental health. Especially at this time of year, things can get stressful and you can feel overwhelmed with just your ever growing to do list. Mental health issues can come in different ways. It may appear as anxiety symptoms, depression, stress, or simply feeling like you have too much going on. All of which can have a negative effect on your thought process. Instead, why not focus on your thoughts and start to feel grateful for all the good things happening. Don’t focus too much on the stress of the holiday period and instead enjoy it.


Our eyesight and hearing


Another thing to think about would be taking care of our eyesight and hearing. These are two senses we have that are often take for granted. Yet, if they were to disappear entirely we would be at a loss. Don't think, maybe next year I can focus on taking better care of these things. How do you protect your eyes? How do you take care of your hearing? The thing is, it’s just about noticing changes and making sure you take action at your earliest convenience, instead of putting things off which we can often do. Get a check-up.


Our physical health and activity


Another thing to think about is our physical health and activity. We can all become concerned about other people's health and pay little attention to our own. Are we exercising enough? Could we be more active? Could we be outside more in the fresh air walking instead of choosing to drive somewhere or taking other transport options? These things are about a choice, and choosing to take better care of yourself physically could give you a whole host of benefits such as more energy and better quality of sleep.


Our diets


Finally, focusing on your diet is a great way to take better care of yourselves. Maybe just changing what you eat, maybe cutting out some of the bad stuff, can be a great way to focus on your diet and improve your health. It is more about sustainability than a crazy diet to lose a few pounds.

I hope this has inspired you to consider yourself more in the future.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
