Salt Lake City — (KUTV) Calling All Superheros! Licensed Therapist Clair Mellenthin visited Fresh Living with 4 Tips To De-Stress Dads.
Today’s Dads often juggle several hats every day: working from home, career, childcare, meal planning and making, as well as partnering in a way that other generations have never seen.
Balancing all of the demands of fatherhood, especially for stay at home dads can be demanding and stressful.
Here are 4 ways to help Dads de-stress:
- Exercise is crucial for self-care. Find a group to exercise with. It takes care of you from the inside out.
- Make time for guy time. It is so important for dads to have male friends and get out and socialize with them.
- Alone time. Even 15 minutes makes a huge difference in patience, tolerance, and clear thinking.
- Nurture yourself. Everyone needs a self-care treat on a regular basis.
