7 top holistic healing articles & videos of 2020

The best of 2020 (so far...) to keep your dog healthy 🐶💪

2020 has certainly thrown us a few curveballs, and despite everything going on, I hold onto the saying: "It may be bad, it may be good, only the future will tell". I wrote about the idea that even seemingly bad things may be a trigger for positive change, and we may need to hold on to this idea in order to pull through this challenging period.

The other “tool” I love, is to envision what the future world will look like, and what role we will play in it. This morning I was on my bike thinking about what the future would look like for me, and I came up with my definition of life, my vision:

“Thriving by making a difference in the lives of dogs and their people.”

The practical side of my vision has many different aspects and angles and can be as simple as sharing what I have learned, without charging anything for the information. (I really didn’t like the financial part of veterinary practice, even though it is necessary.)

Today, I have decided to share some of our most popular newsletters, blogs, videos, and live sessions published this year. Perhaps you were busy and missed some of them, and having them all in one place can definitely be handy.  

My thanks go to Jen, my team member, and ally who helped organize them for this newsletter. Some people are surprised that I write every single newsletter, and to be honest when I see how much I have written and how many blogs there are on our website — I am surprised too! 😂 It just doesn’t feel like work. That may be it!

Anyhow, here are the Top 7 articles and videos of 2020, plus a few extra new things. Enjoy, and thanks for sharing!
