Today the family worked on building the retaining wall in front of our house. It is still not done but only because we ran out of logs not because of injury.
I wanted to hit the gym today but after the company for building the wall I just didn’t have time. Hopefully I can make it a few times this week now that football is over it is much easier to find time to go.
Today’s happy/healthy tip is:
KEEP A PET
Pet ownership can have a good effect on your blood pressure and heart rate and potentially reduce the incidence of stress and depression. In one study comparing people who owned a dog or a cat with people who did not, participants were required to complete mental arithmetic tests. Pet owners who took the tests in the presence of their pets exhibited lower heart rate and blood pressure, and recovered faster afterward. Also, taking your dog for regular walks brings you into contact with other dog owners, allowing you to connect with others.
