Self-Care Tips for Dads

Self-Care Tips for Dads

Whether you’re a new Dad, or one with years of experience, taking care of your mental health is important.

There’s a tendency in society for men to bottle up their emotions. However, to help improve your wellbeing and get you back to being the best Dad you can be, here are some self-care tips:

Eat well and drink plenty of water – Make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables and drink lots of water daily.

Get a good night’s rest - In addition to a healthy diet and good hydration, you should also get enough sleep.  This will allow your brain and body time to rest and recuperate.

Take some ‘me-time’ for self-care - Just a small amount of “me time” can have a positive impact on your health and wellbeing.  Why not get your family to treat you to a Cher-Mere Father’s Day Spa Package?  Choose from our 10 specially-designed packages which include: “Royal Flush” Manicure, “Power Play” Pedicure, “Ace” Aromatherapy Back and Neck Massage and the “MVP” Aromatherapy Body Massage.   These services will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and stress-free.

Connect with other dads/friends – This can help you as a man and a father, by allowing you to share your experiences with others going through similar challenges. You can reach out through a phone call, social media, text message or by meeting for a chat.  This can do wonders for your peace of mind.

Practice self-care outdoors and exercise regularly - Fresh air and exercise are important for your mental health as well as keeping fit.  When you work out, your body releases chemicals called ‘endorphins’ which help provide your brain with a sense of wellness and happiness. You will also have more energy, as you get into the habit of exercising regularly.  This can be as simple as a brisk walk in a park or savannah in your area, or even joining your local gym.

Take time to breathe and focus on positives - Last but not least, take time to stop and just breathe.  Sometimes, all you need is to give your brain some self-care and a much-needed boost.  During this time, try to have at least one positive thought for the day.

Remember, parenting isn’t always easy, as you try to be the best Dad you can be!
