In this youth-crazed society that we live in, it seems that there is always a new serum or superfood on the market promising a youthful glow and never-ending energy.
Unfortunately, most of these supposed “miracle” products are filled with empty promises that often fall short of delivering.
But what if the secret to a youthful appearance and a bit more pep in your step didn’t come from a skincare product or health food smoothie?

And its not just her appearance that causes people to do a double-take when they hear her age – its her active lifestyle, contagious energy, and cheery outlook on life that truly gives her an all-around vibrant aura leaving all of us wondering, “How do I get some of THAT!?”
Her answer? Dogs!
Brinkley swears by the fact that her two furry friends, Maple and Chester, are the secret to her not only looking, but feeling amazing!
By using her dogs as motivation to get outside in the fresh air and get active, she finds herself rarely missing a day of exercise!
“If you can’t get motivated to exercise for your heart or fitness, do it for your four-legged ‘personal trainers,’” Brinkley said to Woman’s World.
Whether it’s a morning jog, a lunch-break stroll, or an evening walk, making sure that your pups get the exercise they need will inevitably help to improve your own health and well-being.
Not to mention that plenty of scientific studies have shown that being outdoors in nature can have a meditative effect and naturally lower stress levels. And we all know that stress can be detrimental to our health and our youthful glow.
All this means that getting outside with your four-legged friends is the perfect way to stop the hands of time and improve how you look and feel – mind, body, and soul!
