Will The Robotic Dog Be The Next Trend?

Some of the benefits of having a dog are improved heart health by reducing high blood pressure and other related conditions. Keeps you going because now you have a dog whose life is depending on you. It’s another way to keep you moving by dog walks. Gives you a way to meet more people while at the dog parks and play dates.

So, what if your next best friend is a robot? You heard me right in 2020 this new dog robot is coming out called Jennie. Tom Stevens is the mind behind Jennie after his mother got diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and had to give up her dog. Stevens said “My mom was devastated, so I started looking at substitutes for live animal companions,”

Jennie does many of the things that an average dog would do, like barking, responding to human touch and wags her tail, which will give that emotional support and love that every human being looks for to have in their life. Research shows that both robotic pets and pet therapy are on the rise in nowadays life. I think robotic pet can be another opinion for those who for one reason or another can’t have a ‘real’ pet.

According to Tombot’s Kickstarter page, Jennie the Golden Labrador retriever dog was created after Stevens own four-legged pup and is expected to be available for the public to purchase in May and will cost about $450. Which considering how many things a real pet would need like, the vet, food, pet sitter, groomer and toys, the price sounds affordable. So, what do you guys think? Let me know me know in the comments below!

Water!

Water is a macro nutrient, which means that we need it in large amounts to live. However, water is the only macro nutrient that isn’t an energy food source. We should be drinking about 2 liters a day more than that in warmer climates due to the fact with the heat your body sweats, and you will need to replace it.

Body Functions That Work With Water:

  • It helps with the production of saliva since water is its main compound.
  • It maintains the right body temperature by releasing sweat from skin pores to you down, which also helps with fevers.
  • It’s a protection for your spinal cord, tissue and joints water helps lubricate and keep body cells together.
  • Water works with fiber to its mix with body waste to help you rid of it and, it also prevents kidney stones.
  • Keeping dehydrated will give you a boost with daily tasks.
  • It assists digestion and nutrient absorption.
  • Improves blood oxygen circulation and fights off illness.
  • It aids in cognitive function and improves your mood.
  • It aids in keeping bright skin and prevents overall dehydration.

Ways To Increase Your Water Intake:

  • There are apps to remind you to drink water.
  • Add spices and favors in your water to add taste.
  • Eat fruit and vegetable since they are water-based.
  • Drink before and after bathroom visits because we lose a lot of liquids like that.
  • Have water on hand everywhere you go.
  • Dilute sugary drinks with water and ice to decrease your sugar intake.
  • Snack on salty stuff and give herbal teas a try!

 

OK, that’s all I have for you today and don’t forget to keep drinking water.

Talking About My Last Breakup

Yes, I know that me writing this post might come back to bite me back in the future. A year ago, this month, I went through a messy breakup, and I’m about to tell you how it all went down. What I’m trying to take away from this post is one my thought process which I always do better in writing form and second I have hopes this might give some courage to those who need it.

So, I guess it’s storytime. I was about six months out as a trans, and of course, I had a lot of questions, so I went on a transgender Facebook and asked questions than someone was rude to me and there was one person who defended me, so I messaged him with a thank you. We became friends. Feelings started to fly, and we started dating. I became friends with his mum because she sent me a friend request. We dated for a week, and he dumped me and blocked me. Back in February 2018, he sent a friend request again. He told me that in a few months he is coming to Malta to see me.

We restarted our relationship, and we started making plans of me moving to Uk and get getting engaged and everything was going smooth. I went to get him from the airport; we need lunch, and he locked himself in my bedroom. In the evening, we went out, and he dumped me in pubic saying that he can’t cope with my disability. He lived and slept in my house without paying a cent for that or any of the places I took him to. All he did was moan how annoying Malta is which hurts.

A few months ago, I decided to plan a holiday and thought about going to a hotel close to where he lives, but after I told him about it and the way he reacted I quickly changed my mind, I’m going to Cyprus instead. A lot of healing needs to be done before I even think about dating again.
