Do you practice gratitude? It’s well-known that having an active gratitude practice can make you happier and healthier, but when you’re always so busy, when can you find the time to do it?

There’s no better time to appreciate the smaller things in life than on your daily dog walk. Whether your dog is up to something silly or you just feel that connection between yourself and them, taking a moment to notice your wonderful partnership is a great way to start a gratitude practice.
