How to Unwind: For Dads
Happy Father’s Day! We know that this past year has posed many challenges to hard working dads like you, and so here’s a short guide on how to relax and achieve well-deserved simple joys. We’ve also included must-have items for amazing fathers like you!
Here are 4 things you can do to unwind:
Whether it's hitting the gym, shooting hoops, going on a run, or simply walking outside, physical activities are a great way to destress and stay healthy both physically and mentally. It’s easy to neglect exercise when you’re busy, but never underestimate the power of a workout in allowing you to release stress and feel fulfillment—especially when hitting personal bests!
The beauty of exercise is that it's rewarding, and you get to do the activities you want either alone or alongside people you love for extra motivation and fun! So in unwinding yourself, feel free to work out with your family, friends, or even pets.
2. Have a full body massage
If your muscles are tight from sitting around working all day, or sore from your daily workouts and being on the go 24/7, you should definitely look into having a full body massage. This serene activity can work wonders for you by reducing stress and soreness, while also promoting physical and mental relaxation. It’s the perfect thing to reward yourself with if you’re looking for an easy, satisfying, and comfortable way to unwind.
3. Eat your comfort food
It's called “comfort food” for a reason. When you’re stressed, grab a bite (or two) of your favorite food! Eating food can be an incredibly easy yet effective way to unwind, and you can share this happiness with others by sharing your food too!
4. Give yourself some alone time
While it’s great to be in the comfort of your loved ones, it’s just as important to have time for yourself to do what you want. Whether it’s watching television, playing video games, reading a book, or literally doing nothing—studies have shown that a man is most relaxed when he has some alone time. Take these moments to simply breathe and do what brings you simple joys, and think about nothing but giving yourself some well-earned rest.
