This is a #flashbackfriday Labrador Lesson from January, when the Labs were hoping for snow…
As Labradors, we don’t read the news, but we see just enough television and social media to know that there is no shortage of negativity in the world. Take a tip from us: focus on the positive and remember to have fun. Our fun times include walking with our humans (on leash, for their safety); chewing sticks; and watching deer 🦌 and turkeys 🦃. We also love frolicking in the snow, but even when there’s no snow, we remember to have fun when we get outside.
Whether you have 2 legs or 4, remember to have fun…in your movement practice, and in the rest of your life. Focus on the positive and create fun times whenever possible.
As Labradors, we love to move. We enter every walk with no expectations; we simply look forward to having fun with our humans. We understand that sometimes humans have expectations for their movement sessions. They want to jump over a certain fallen tree, or achieve a specific pace or distance. We know that having goals is important for humans, but we suggest you approach your movement session with an open mind and a positive attitude. Just because your movement session doesn’t meet your expectations doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun. Even though the large tree had been cleared, we still enjoyed chewing on the sticks the trail crew left behind.
Whether you have 2 legs or 4, look for the positive aspects of your movement. Focus on having more fun and fewer expectations.
