Pawsitivity for 2021

With Boris announcing the UK would enter our 3rd national lockdown on Tuesday 5th Jan 2021, I felt determined not to let this news dampen my positive spirits and fresh new year motivation. January has well and truly arrived, so we at Pawesome Pet Tags want to share our top 5 tips on how you can stay pawsitive and active this January.

1. Explore

Go on an (local) adventure! Research into your local area for your next dog walk - you may even stumble across a hidden gem you never know was there! The National Trust website is a great resource for finding dog friendly walks, ranging in difficulty and length so you can find a country walk that suits you, your family and your dog. Stunning views guaranteed!

Walk checklist

- Water

- Dog lead, collar & tag

- Coats (always check the weather!)

- Wellies/walking boots

- Treats

- Poo bags

2. Breathe

Between awkward work zoom calls, adjusting to life with the kids in the house and making sure your fur-baby is getting enough attention, you may be forgetting to take some time for yourself. Carve at least 20 minutes out of your day to check in and do something for YOU. Read a book, have a bath or hug your best fur-friend for 20 minutes!

20min self-care activities

- Read 1 Chapter of a book/magazine

- Yoga practise (Yoga with Adrienne is our fave!)

- HIIT workout (I'm currently taking part in Women's Health 4 week home HIIT plan)

- Face mask

- Paint your nails

- Long bubble bath

3. Laugh

With everything going on in the world, we can easily feel trapped in a bubble of darkness. Get a little silly! Find something to make you smile and laugh today. Play hide and seek with the dog. Make them the star of their very own photoshoot. Or watch funny dog videos together - the sight of other dogs is sure to get their tails wagging! Take some time to enjoy life at home and let your fur- I mean hair down!

4. Shine

Treat yourself in the January sales and let yourself sparkle with some new year additions. Why not update your fur-babies wardrobe with these fabulous walking accessories from Pup Chic Boutique. They have hooman accessories too so you and your pooch can be, like, totally in sync. Now 25% off with the code JAN25.

5. Call

Pick up the phone and speak to someone you haven't spoken to in awhile. Just because we can't physically be together right now doesn't mean we can't feel close to those we love.

If you're feeling especially low during these times and need to speak to someone, Samaritans in a free helpline ready to help. Call for free on 116 123 or email

The Pawesome Pet Tags team is sending you all the most pawsitive vibes and hope that you kick start 2021 in your own, magical way.

From our family to yours
