I know you don’t have a lot of time.
That can be the source of a lot of our problems, you know – not having enough time.
- The kids need to be fed,
- The dishes need to be done,
- You’ve got to make some money,
- And make your partner feel happy and loved, too –
- all at the same time.
Time has suddenly become one of the most expensive resources you possess.
That’s why I made the 5-day Father Fitness Program really simple, dense, and distilled – because anything that takes away from your precious time has got to be worth it.
If you don’t spend time to taking care of yourself, you start doing everything badly.
“Recognize that it is not really possible to steadily help others when we ourselves are not in good physical, mental, or emotional state. We may be able to carry on for a while, but sooner or later we end up feeling depleted, discouraged, or weak. We cannot keep on giving when we are running on an empty tank. We need to be solid.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I don’t know about you, but when I’m super busy and my family and career need a lot of time and attention, I find it really easy to sacrifice the one responsibility that I can cut the biggest corner on – my own self-care.
I’m not accountable to anyone else for how I take care of myself. If I skip that one exercise session, or I cancel that massage because money is tight, or I skip a few hours of sleep to get some extra work done – nobody else calls me on it. Nobody else holds me accountable – except, of course, my own fitness.
The longer I skip out on taking care of myself, the harder it gets to be the better dad, especially in moments of stress or tension.
When I’m not fit, my family suffers. My work suffers. My enjoyment of life suffers.
So I made it really simple to take care of myself.
I don’t devote a lot of time to my own fitness, I dedicate really focused pockets of time to it.
I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what I should do, I select powerful habits and then I stick to them.
You can make it really simple to take care of yourself.
“Our goal is not to ignore the problems of life, but to put ourselves in better mental and emotional states where we can not only come up with solutions, but act upon them.”
~ Anthony Robbins
Before I even started working on BeTheBetterDad.com, I was already developing a program to help working dads maintain balance in their lives.
Young Dads are at one of the most difficult stages of their lives, when the demands on your time and attention and resources are greater than at any other time, yet you have the least amount of experience and momentum you will ever have, during this most difficult of challenges.
It is, in short, the hardest part.
You’re only ready to handle the worst when you’re feeling fit.
The Father Fitness program focuses on the 5 areas of fitness that are most important to Dads:
- Mental Fitness
- Social Fitness
- Emotional Fitness
- Financial Fitness
- Physical Fitness
When a Dad is out of shape in one of these 5 areas, it’s a lot more difficult to Be The Better Dad when times are tough. If you’re feeling tired, or cranky, or broke, or hungry, then a tantrum from your child or a misunderstanding with your partner can lead to some pretty ugly outcomes.
But if you are feeling fit, and balanced, and ready, you’ve got a much better chance of being the better dad, no matter how tough things may get.
That’s what I want to help you to do: feel balanced enough to make a good decision in a moment of difficulty.
I also want to help you enjoy your life more. Those little moments, when your children are being adorable, could be completely ignored if you are preoccupied with a bill that’s not paid or a relationship that’s on the edge.
You’ve got a much better chance of being the dad you want to be, and living the life you want to live, if you’re feeling fit.
The Father Fitness program will give you 5 habits to use in each of these 5 areas:
These 25 habits will help you, little by little, day by day, to improve your fitness – and allow you to enjoy those little moments of life.
