I know I can get stressed by a lot of things like school, work, relationships, etc. So for me I have to stop for a moment and enjoy the little things. Little things can be very precious and memorable…like going to DSP’s event called broomball with friends that I love and care about. I have fun playing the game and being in the moment without thinking or worrying about anything else. Being mindful in the moment and enjoying the little things helps me from stressing out.
Many people say it is hard to take care of dogs while you are in college. It is true since you have to balance their care with school, work, relationships, social activities, etc. It is hard to take care of TWO dogs at home with everything else, but I don’t regret it. I love dogs. I have two dogs that are Alaskan Malamute. The Alaskan Malamute is a very hard breed to train. My oldest dog’s name is Sleepy and she is two years old. My youngest dog’s name is is Dopey and he is about five months old. They are my family and owning my pets teaches me how to manage my time. Time management is very important and I have to balance taking care of the dogs with everything else while living off campus. At least I can look forward to seeing them when I get home at the end of the day. I just sat on the couch with my boyfriend and we ate dinner. Then we watched a movie. My two dogs just jumped on the couch and slept on us. These moments are very precious and make me feel peaceful and I don’t have to worry about anything.
