Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.
No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.
There are many different ways people overcome obstacles in their lives. Thankfully, the stigma surrounding therapy is slowly (but surely) slipping away and we're opening up about our problems and needs. For some, a good workout is just as relaxing. Others are learning how meditation can be a helpful tool in their mental health journey.
But y'all, let's talk about therapy dogs.
While we can't all run to the welcome paws of a mama golden retriever when we need a boost, there are good boys and girls who are doing a lot of work so that individuals can go through the day, a helpful paw to hold.
Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week regarding therapy dogs.
