With Father’s Day almost here, let’s take a minute to remember the health tips our dads have shared with us over the years (whether they were the best tips or not).
The Importance of Daily Exercise
We all know exercise is important and we can thank Dad for instilling that mentality. As we grow older, don’t forget the memories of playing catch in the yard or throwing around a basketball in the driveway with Dad. Practice this same activities with your own children or try to take a quick jog around your neighborhood or go for a swim in the summer. If you don’t have a lot of time in your day, even 10 minutes of cardio can do the trick.
“Walk It Off!”
Although Dad said this after someone got injured, the same mentality can be used in your life today. If something bad happens, don’t fret over it for hours. Just learn from it and continue about your day. You shouldn’t place importance on something you can’t change, so just “walk it off.”
Rather than taking an energy drink or pop with us on our way out the door, grab a water instead. While drinking eight glasses of water a day is a high goal, start small and work your way up. Water has many benefits, such as decreasing your risk of liver disease, pancreatitis, and some types of cancer. Water also energizes muscles, removes toxins and keeps your skin hydrated.
Remember to Schedule In a Nap
There’s always time for a nap. Just as kids sometimes do anything to get out of their nap times, adults are trying to find time to fit a nap into their schedule. Even a 10 minute nap can have many benefits like increasing your alertness and memory.
