Now that we’ve already made our case for mindfulness and the power of being fully attuned to the world around us, we need to get real with you and recognize that sometimes there’s just as much of a need for mindlessness. We just recommend that it doesn’t impede your bonding time with your dog—or yourself, for that matter.
That said, mindlessness takes many forms and can actually be a good way to take a quick mental break after a stressful or mind-numbing day. Sometimes, mindlessness means binge watching Netflix (we can confirm that there’s no such thing as watching The Office too many times) or browsing through Netflix to figure out what you want to binge watch, then giving up after 30 minutes of choice paralysis.Occasionally, it means searching for the perfect recipes on Pinterest knowing full well you’ll never get around to making them (it’s the thought that counts). For many of us, though, mindlessness means scrolling through Instagram and letting the images on the screen transport your brain to a simpler place for a little while (or, occasionally, hours—who needs sleep anyway?).
While seeing your friends and family is great, we personally feel that the best part of Instagram is its dog population. They are everywhere, looking adorable, acting silly, providing the best meme fodder, and living their best lives. So today, not only are we encouraging you to relax with a little mindless activity (at night, post morning mindfulness, of course), but we’re doing you one more and sharing with you our top 10 dog accounts on Instagram, guaranteed to put a smile on your face each and every day.
