Having a pet can calm anxiety, improve your health, and fight off loneliness. All great benefits when you’re trying to keep things running smoothly at home while also staying on top of your workload.
If you don’t already let your doggo — or any pet, really — hang out where you’re working during the day, try something different. Let them in today, whether it’s into a home office, next to your feet at the kitchen table, or beside you on the couch. Be sure to give your pup some attention, take him for at least one walk, and don’t be stingy with the treats!
When your workday ends, you may suddenly find you’ve taken a couple of breaks, gotten up and moved around, that your productivity increased, and that you feel less tired and stressed.
