And Happy Hug Your Hound Day!
I have to admit, I do miss having a hound to hug… or a border collie, as it were. I’ve been thinking that it’s almost time to get another dog, and I’d half decided I wanted a golden retriever this time around. Last night we went to vote in the advance polls, and didn’t we see three goldens outside the hall! I was thinking maybe it was a sign for me, until I walked in the pharmacy on the way home from my walk this morning and saw the most gorgeous border on the cover of a magazine. So, now I’m torn. But honestly, my first love has always been Aussie cattle dogs, only they are really hard to find around here. It’s a ways off yet, because I really want to have a house with a yard this time around before I get another dog.
So, if you have a dog, give it a hug from me today.
In honour of Hug Your Hound Day, I found this cute article for you hidden in my stash of content. (And yes, in case you were wondering, I really do walk my talk when it comes to using PLR.)
Today’s Read: Advice from Your Hound on Using Social Media
Social media is a wonderful way to stay in touch with family and friends, but it can have its downside. Numerous studies suggest that overdoing it on Facebook or similar sites can make us unhappy.
For example, having more than 7 social media accounts triples the risk of depression among young adults, according to researchers at The University of Pittsburgh. Maybe it’s the multitasking or the pressure to look cool in multiple venues with different rules. Either way, that’s one mistake your dog wouldn’t make. He’s content with playing in the same park each afternoon, and eating his usual for dinner each night.
Here are a few more lessons you could learn from your dog when it comes to using social media…
Always Play Nice
Online spontaneity can lead to regrets if you say something insensitive. Even dogs benefit from being socialized.
Think first. Ask yourself if what you’re typing is encouraging and constructive. Imagine how you’d feel if you were on the receiving end.
Consider your audience. Context matters. Avoid misunderstandings by choosing the appropriate platform for your remarks. Puppy pictures will be more appreciated on Facebook than LinkedIn.
Take the high road. You’ll probably run into some rudeness and aggression online. Try to elevate the conversation or leave gracefully if necessary.
The average mutt can have just as much confidence as any Westminster Kennel Club winner. Loving yourself protects you from feeling inferior online and off. This is a lesson I know that I can always use a reminder of!
Be authentic. Know that you are worthy of happiness and respect just the way you are. Celebrate your strengths and enjoy exploring the areas where you want to grow.
Resist comparisons. Sometimes it looks like everyone else on Facebook is taking exotic vacations and bragging about their gifted children. Count your blessings and pursue your own definition of success.
Think positive. Think of challenges as opportunities. Wake up with a smile and be kind to yourself. When you talk to yourself, choose words that comfort and inspire you. (See yesterday’s read for more on positive thinking.)
Being sedentary takes a toll on your mental and physical health. Maybe you need to step away from the computer.
Take a walk. Exercise each day. Walk your dog an extra mile or visit the gym. I’ve started doing this every morning, just like I would have been doing if Annie were still here with me.
Move around. Incorporate more physical activity into each day. Climb the stairs or do some extra chores around the house.
Interact offline. Cultivate relationships face-to-face. Meet up with friends for a regular coffee or lunch date.
Engage in Meaningful Activities
Your dog can find fulfillment in chasing a stick. You may need to aim a little higher. If you’re feeling down about squandering the last 2 hours on clickbait articles, devote your time to finer things.
Live mindfully. Any activity can be profound if you keep your purpose in mind. Enjoy preparing breakfast for your family or giving your dog a bath.
Find a hobby. Fill your leisure time with projects that expand your knowledge and skills. Play a musical instrument or study a foreign language.
Focus on giving. True gratification comes from helping others and contributing to your community. Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or library. Tell a retail worker when their patience and kindness helps to make your errands more pleasant. And always say thank you! You’ll make someone’s day with those two little words.
If your dog can figure out how to avoid Facebook depression and Instagram anxiety, so can you. Monitor your social media use and pay attention to your life offline. You and your dog will both benefit!
It’s amazing how smart our dogs are, don’t you think!
