Dogs Looking Out Windows: Submit Your Own! (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

There's a lot you can learn from a dog. But perhaps one of the healthiest is one we consider near and dear to our hearts: Dogs are pros at unplugging and recharging!

When they're not sleeping or eating, dogs just want to play -- whether it's fetch, tag or "Squirrel!". But even when they can't run around, they always are sure to enjoy a few relaxing minutes to themselves looking out the window. A few minutes of serene gazing may not seem like a big deal, but the de-stressing benefits can help everything from your hair to your heart and more.

Not to mention that many of us have jobs where we're required to look at computer screens for many hours a day, causing eye strain in as many as 70 percent of computer workers, according to CBS. An easy solution? The 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away, the Mayo Clinic explains. In other words, look out the window!

For some healthy inspiration, click through the photos of the peaceful and playful pups below. Then submit photos of your dogs looking out windows too!
