I've recently been sharing tips on social media for staying grounded during busy holidays. It can be a much better celebration when we are feeling focused and calm.
How does your pet react to the holidays?
A stressed out pet can easily ruin your holiday fun so I reached out to pet lover Jess Stern from Three Tree Healing Arts. Jess is a dog mom and veterinary technician and she helps her "patients" utilizing energy healing, aromatherapy, crystal therapy and more. (She even does Reiki on horses!!! Wow, right?!?!)
Here are her tips for keeping your pets happy and healthy during the holidays.
1. Create a “safe space” if you don’t already have one....a crate with bed, room, or separate area of the home where a pet can go and decompress/rest. You can incorporate oils, calming music & gentle lighting
2. Monitor holiday treats...make sure they are pet safe and in moderation so as not to cause GI distress
3. Use puzzle/enrichment toys to keep pets busy & stimulated in the right way

Wishing you and your pets a wonderful and peaceful holiday!!!
