Until we grow, we don’t see the schedule that makes it hard to better our father’s lifestyle. But the sheer example of that can be witnessed by closely observing your father’s lifestyle. It might not be the case with everyone, but it is the case with most fathers.
The perfect reason behind a father’s careless lifestyle is his responsibilities toward work and family. He is so occupied with stress, tensions, bills, and more that there is no time left to take proper care of himself.
You can choose to change and improve his lifestyle because there is always a scope for improvement if there is a strong will. While the habits that he should adopt for a better life depend on his daily schedule, we have succeeded to find some that are universal, and every person can adopt without much adjustment.
The Father’s Morning Meditation
Whether your father wakes up early or he wakes up late in the morning, the very first habit that you want him to adopt in his life is doing meditation. The benefits of meditation practice are so divine and countless that one can only experience them. Meditation helps in increasing self-awareness, reducing negative emotions and thoughts, increasing imagination, patience, creativity, and tolerance. And all these benefits make life much easier to handle. Start with the five-minute-sitting meditation, and the time will increase with daily practice.
After Meal Walk
While a heavy breakfast is recommended to have energy throughout the day, it is unlikely that your father follows a walking routine after having a meal. Lunch and dinner should be lighter than breakfast, and a walk after having lunch and dinner is crucial. Walking 500 steps is enough to help the digestive system digest food easily. While you can keep an eye on your father for an after-dinner walk, you have to call or message him daily for some days to have a walk after having lunch. Good digestion is a benefit that leads to many more, and everyday walking will help him to keep his legs and knees active for longer.
A Quick Rest During Work
If you are frankly updated with trends in the corporate sector, you might surely know that MNCs let their employees have a quick nap so that they can recharge themselves. And it helps the companies to extract higher productivity and happier working environments. Whether or not your father has the luxury to have a quick nap, you can surely ask him to develop a habit of having a quick rest during work. He can just put his head down on the table with his eyes closed and try to relax for around 10 to 15 minutes. It will decrease the amount of work stress he has to deal with on a daily basis.
Habit Of Reading Positive Books
A friend in need is a friend indeed! And if we believe the wise ones, books are the best friends of humans. Even in this era of the internet where every knowledgeable thing is available just at some clicks, reading books can infuse a lot more knowledge. And facts available on the internet can be fake too. You can make a list of books that talk about positivity, happiness, and handling life well and gift them to your father one after another. Ask him to develop a habit of reading some pages before sleep to have a good sleep.
A Routine Health Check-Up
All the above habits are to better his lifestyle and to keep his health on point. But not getting a regular health check-up won’t make any sense. The human body can catch any disease anytime, and with routine health check-ups, it becomes possible to detect and diagnose any health issue at an early stage. It can be every month, once every three months, or twice a year.
You may get scolded sometimes because fathers do have a listening issue, but it will be worth it as your efforts will lead him towards a better lifestyle.
