Why You Should Add SweatHouz to Dad’s Toolbox
Although the ‘gift of health’ sounds cliche, it really is the gift that keeps on giving. Practicing self-care has become an essential part of a dad’s toolbox when it comes to prioritizing mental and physical health in order to be a better father, better partner, and even a better boss or employee. This Father’s Day, June 18th, SweatHouz is spotlighting self-care for dads everywhere! Read more to learn why.
Healthier Fathers equals Healthier Families.
Science suggests that the health of fathers influences the health of their families. Not only do children watch and mimic the health behaviors of their parents, but recent research also demonstrates that when fathers’ mental health declines, so does the quality of their co-parenting relationships. The domains of health and wellness – like physical, mental, emotional, social – are all connected. Thus, engaging in preventive strategies that promote physical and mental wellness is something all dads should strive for.
Take it from Zane Clifton, a hard-working father of 2 and the Controller for Legacy Franchise Concepts, who shares that “as a father, mental and physical health is very important.” He adds that prioritizing physical health allows him to “go on countless adventures with (his) kids, like playing baseball outside, being able to pick (his) kids up when they fall, and more.” Further, Clifton focuses on maximizing his mental health because he “knows that if (his) mental health is in a good place, it allows (him) to be more patient and present” with his kids.
Of course, being a rockstar father and partner comes with more time commitments and competing priorities than many realize. For instance, Clifton explains that he faces “multiple barriers when it comes to prioritizing a wellness routine – whether it’s taking kids to daycare, sports practices, or different parties and playdates,” the days and weeks are fun but busy. Using strategies like recognizing your non-negotiables and planning ahead to include time for them in your weekly schedule, can be one step in the right direction.
