Honor Dad The Healthy Way

Making Father's Day special

Start a New Tradition

Let this Father's Day be the beginning of a family tradition that includes a fun activity before the barbecue feast. You could go bike riding, take a walk at a favorite park, play softball, basketball, tennis, or whatever sport you all enjoy together. This will not only add to the delight of his special day but also give him and the rest of the family a great fitness outing.

Gifts That Keep on Giving

Looking for a unique and thoughtful Father's Day gift? How about a subscription to a healthy men's magazine or if he likes to cook, a low-fat cookbook, or healthy cooking classes? Consider a gift certificate for a massage, guaranteed to relax his body and spirit. The perfect gift might be a membership to the local health club -- or just the time to go and work out. Does he need a new pair of running shoes, a tennis racquet, a new basketball, or some other present that will help him get regular exercise? How about a hand-made book of certificates that includes such things as mowing the lawn, taking out the garbage, and other chores that Dad can redeem? Gifts that allow Dad to be active will help him relax, feel good about himself, and continue to develop a healthier lifestyle.

Whichever way you choose to celebrate that special man in your life, do it with love and respect for all that he does for you. Have a wonderful time cherishing Dad!
