It’s 2020! A new year means it’s time to set some New Year’s resolutions for you and your pet, and there’s no reason why these resolutions can’t benefit you both. Whether your resolutions are to get more exercise, eat healthier, or spend more time together, there’s plenty of resolutions out there that both you and your pet can enjoy.
Here are a few ideas for new year resolutions for you and your pet:
Schedule Regular Check-Ups
Health and wellness are integral to living longer, happier, and fuller lives, and scheduling regular check-ups for yourself at the doctors and your pet at the vet can help you stay on track to do just that!
Groom Your Pet Daily
Look your best, feel your best, right? Keeping your pet well-groomed (and yourself well-groomed, as well) helps keep your pet healthy and looking great on the regular.
Get More Exercise
Take longer walks with your pet! Or commit to going on a walk three or four times a week. Run or wiggle around with your pet. All of these forms of exercise are excellent playtimes and bonding time and also expend energy and burn calories. All good things!
Be more mindful of the food you eat and the food you let your pet eat. Cut back on the snacks and the table scraps. Maybe even measure your pet’s food and consider learning more about portion sizes. These habits will help you eat healthier.
Spend More Time Together
Quality time is good for the heart and the soul, and spending time with your pet is something that both you and your pet will enjoy. Try spending more time with your pet as a de-stressing activity. It works wonders!
