Forever Young ft. Justin Prust
What if you could stay youthful forever? Most of us would love to stay youthful, enjoy living our best life, and give ourselves, our family and our dogs, our best energy. Being forever youthful is less about age and more about vibe, energy and a mindset. Join us with Justin Trust as we share the actions that have helped us to be youthful forever from the inside out.  While many of the actions we take will be relatable and might inspire you to take action, also, there will be other steps you can take that speak to you on a different level. It can be easy to fall into patterns and habits that do not encourage you to thrive. Measuring progress is so essential.  Jump into this episode, leave a review for us, and share with us what was your biggest takeaway!  Support the show
Celebrating Jasper
Jasper sparkled, in life and on camera, always ready to shine as he demonstrated the games he loved, the games that transformed him from a dog lacking confidence to the extraordinary dog he became. Jasper inspired thousands upon thousands of Gamechangers with his passion, his enthusiasm, and his story.  Today, we are celebrating his life, as we will do every day. Jasper may not be with us physically, but, as Michelle, his incredible (and just as tenacious) owner, shares, he is still here in so many ways. Join us in a celebration of everything he brought into her life, including an unexpected, and yet entirely fateful, journey from Bermuda to the UK so that he could become the ultimate teacher, not just for Michelle, but for the world.  Michelle reflects on the beginning of their journey together, as well as how she has discovered a new perspective, and a new appreciation. Jasper’s memory continues to push her in new directions. We know, without a doubt, that he will continue to inspire the world through the power of games, as Jasper X, the NBN dog that gave so many dog owners in so many countries hope that their dog could be their very best version of themselves, too, just like Jasper.   Support the show

Dog Training Provides A Mental Health Boost
Our dogs can give us purpose, they provide us with opportunities to be present, and so much more. While in this episode we're talking about how training our dogs, enjoying our dogs and spending time with our dogs can improve our mental health, we also touch on how our dogs can do quite the opposite.  Going out for a walk with our dogs, going out on the beach, on an off-lead (or on-lead) walk and being in the moment can provide us with such an amazing outlet that will give us an optimism boost, and a mental health boost. Playing games, focusing on the fun and laughter, can bring us out of darker moments where we're struggling.  How does your dog help you enjoy more experiences, experiences you may not have enjoyed without that dog in your life? If you have a dog that tests you, what can you do to overcome what could be a broken relationship and unlock the ultimate real-life results? We have a few tips for you to get a dog-inspired mental health boost.  Support the show
