Healy – Back in Time

Memphis based singer/songwriter/producer Healy releases his latest track and accompanying visual for “Back in Time” ft. Public Library Commute today (listen/watch here).

“”Back in Time,” much like “Nikes On,” has the central theme of time,” says Healy of the track.  “I really overthink a lot and spend a lot of my energy reliving the past while trying to make it perfect. Time is relative–and sometimes I wish I could manipulate it by slowing it down and living a little longer inside certain moments–so I tried to convey that by slowing and warping the end of the song and offering this really saturated vignette. It only lasts 30 seconds, but it departs from the anecdotal nature of the rest of the song and exists as a really vulnerable portrayal of my core feelings that rarely see the light of day.”

In July, Healy released the track and music video for “Second Wind” which was the first track he wrote and recorded during his trip to Joshua Tree National Park.  The track has nearly 1 million streams.  Earlier this year, Healy released “Nikes On” as well as the music video for his track “Reckless” the latter of which was featured on his debut album Subluxe and has over 47.5 million streams on Spotify.  Healy reached over 1.4 million followers on his Spotify artist page. Healy released “Tuscon,” which has garnered over 2.7 million combined audio streams.  Keep checking for more music from Healy coming soon.

About Healy:

Performing under only his last name, Healy embodies cardinal themes of his work like self-discovery and non-dualism. He released his debut album Subluxe in 2017 in the wake of his second year of medical school.  The album has nearly 60 million audio streams.  The lead single, “Unwind,” caught the internet on its heels, helping to establish Healy’s fixed presence as a promising multidimensional artist in a mercurial musical climate. His work is a fearless transgression—a tonal gradient with origins in classic and indie rock, soul, and Memphis rap.

Healy – Second Wind

Memphis based singer/songwriter/producer Healy releases his latest track and music video, “Second Wind” today (watch here). The track was the first song to be created and recorded during a two-week writing trip to Joshua Tree National Park.

“This song sounds like redemption to me,” says Healy, “I spent a lot of 2019 doubting and second-guessing myself, and writing this song was really cathartic. The song began as a means of self-acceptance and eventually became a general commentary on life as I was seeing it. The song really opens up as it progresses, and as the second verse continues you hear a sort of push and pull between normal and pitched vocals. In the same way, I’ve really stepped into myself more fully this year—and I’ve been working toward finding a balance between humility and ego.”

Earlier this year, Healy released “Nikes On” as well as the music video for his track “Reckless,” the latter of which was featured on his debut album Subluxe  and has over 26 million streams on Spotify.  Most recently, Healy reached over 1.3 million followers on his Spotify artist page.

Last Fall, Healy released “Tuscon,” which has garnered over 2.3 million combined audio streams.

5 Quick & Easy Dog Training Tips

Everyone wants a dog they can communicate with. A dog that you give a simple instruction, and watch it obey. It’s not just for fun but also to make your dog behave accordingly. Some dogs like the security ones are trained and aren’t the same as balanced dogs. It’s your responsibility to train your dog while overseeing its growth from a puppy to an adult dog. You should start with dog obedience training which consists of a few basic commands. Here are five quick and easy dog training tips.

1. Create a Puppy-proof in Your House

Every time a puppy is alone or is not under supervision, he should be in a safe place far from trouble. Imagine coming back home and finding your TV screen on the floor broken, your leather seats torn, and your kitchen looking like you have just been burglarized. Prevent that from happening.

Create a room for your pup and provide any safe toys he/she can play with and chew. Just like you wouldn’t give a toddler total freedom, puppies require the same restriction. You will be preventing accidents and destructive behavior. It ensures your pup doesn’t develop an awkward behavior.

2. Don’t Sleep with Him in Your Bed

It can be tough for you, and we understand. They are part of the family, and there should be no such limits, but allowing your dog to share a bed with you will give him mixed thoughts, and he will be wondering what role he plays.

Allowing him to share the same bed with you will make your dog see himself as your equal, and no reason to respect you. If you insist on allowing him on to your bed, make it an invitation only. Show him that he is not allowed into your bed unless he is invited.

3. Create Short Sessions Throughout The Day

Training is not a one-time thing. If it were, you wouldn’t spend all those years in college. The only way your dog will learn is through undergoing extensive training for a long time with short sessions in between the day. If you find it hard to dedicate some hours each day, enroll in dog training programs with Wag Hotels, and they will educate and train your dog professionally while you are away.

However, if you have the time, train your dog in short snippets. You will be able to notice when the dog is more alert and take advantage rather than wasting your time and annoying your dog by forcing him to learn. Besides, short sessions are easier to manage especially if you have a busy schedule.

4. Be Generous with Your Affection

Most people will mention when they are unhappy with their dogs, but sometimes they ignore the good stuff. As much as you are disappointed with its bad behavior, appreciate its good side as well. Just like we humans, dogs can have best or worst moments.

Ensure that you give your dog the attention it deserves when he’s doing the right stuff. Appreciate and let him know that he has behaved well. Be generous with your words and praise him. Give him some little pats and treats to show that you appreciate.

5. Give Your Dog a Daily Exercise

Just like humans, dogs need plenty of exercise and stimulation on a daily basis to cheer them up and keep them active. One or two walks per day are not enough for your pet especially if it’s a herder or retriever.

Lack of exercise and stimulation can make your dog, bored, unhappy, or unhealthy. In fact, many destructive and aggressive behaviors from dogs are due to lack of exercise and stimulation. A bored dog would find something interesting to do, like messing up your stuff.

Conclusion

When it comes to training your on-four best friend, you have to work hard and exercise patience. It also requires lots of dedication. Training your dog creates a stronger bond, and you can all have fun as long as you treat him/her right and show love.
