Global Wellness: What Wellness Means to Us At Get Joy

Global wellness plays a vital role in our daily human lives. With that in mind, we’re also happy to see the global wellness movement for pets. At Get Joy, we support this wellness movement wholeheartedly. We aim to see our pets – and yours – live their healthiest, happiest, and most joyful lives. 

So, while striving for wellness for ourselves, let’s remember to incorporate wellness into the lives of our furry friends. 

The Purpose of Global Wellness Day

Saturday, June 10, 2023, the world raises awareness for living healthily and happily. Global Wellness Day is celebrated to recognize and celebrate the value of our lives. 

Nowadays, the pet wellness movement considers pets as individuals and part of society. In fact, it begs the question: “How can we help our loyal companions live a healthier and better life?”

By asking ourselves these questions, we can bring awareness to essential wellness changes for the greater well-being of ourselves and our pets.

Wellness Tips For You and Your Dog

It’s no surprise that we’re dedicated to enhancing the well-being of dogs. We also want to provide enjoyable ways to strengthen your bond with your furry friend. It’s a win-win all around! Here are some tips for a better life with your pup.

1. Lots of Walks

Your dog is not hard to please. They’re already happy with a simple walk. Therefore, physical activity contributes to more than just staying in shape. It can prevent depression and improve circulation, memory, and sleep patterns. 

This is all a part of increasing the longevity of your dog’s health. Walking is one of the best and easiest ways to get and stay fit for humans and dogs alike.

2. Focus on the Right Nutrition

We can't stress enough that wellness at the dinner table is not about the quantity but the quality of our food. Wait, did we say dinner table? We also meant in the dog food bowl.

As we prepare next week's meal plan, what about doing the same for our pup? Ensure the food is an excellent mix of quality-rich protein, vitamins, and minerals. Check out our healthy meal plan options with high-quality ingredients.

3. Prevent Obesity in Dogs

When our dogs get overweight, it’s hard for them to feel fit, energized, and positive. Moreover, they’re at risk of severe diseases such as heart failure and cancer. 

Add in some more playtime, and be sure to include nutritious food. All in all, finding a good balance between activity, relaxation, and healthy food will take us a long way.

4. Prioritize Socialization

When dogs are left alone too often without attention or stimulation, they will not be their happiest selves. On the contrary, dogs can become depressed. 

Dogs like attention and being around people. So, ensuring you spend enough time together will improve their happiness. Indeed, it will do the same for you!

5. Have You Heard of Doga?

When you step onto your yoga mat, you can incorporate your dog into classic poses. It’s all about having fun and sharing time while simultaneously getting your yoga in for your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
