A healthy lifestyle begins with the animal's point of view. Upon beginning your daily routine, take time each morning to slow down and really observe your pet's enthusiasm as they greet you. Acknowledge what they get most excited about by writing it down. This helps your brain generate positive inventory memories that can be easily recalled. Make the decision that you are going to focus your attention on the joy you see through your pet's eyes, just like they keep their eye on the ball. This daily exercise will enhance both of your lives and keep you more in tune with your pet's fresh perspective.

Here are a few healthy lifestyle tips to try:
1. Pick one day each week to wake up 10 minutes early to spend more quality time preparing your pet's food. They notice when you put more positive attention to their food.
2. Play soothing classical music before going to bed at night to lull you both to sleep and set your minds at ease. Music calms the mind and allows the body to relax.
3. Notice how your pet stretches its body in bed before moving a muscle to get up? This exercise helps you feel more awake, too!
