Fun and Healthy Father's Day Activities

Jun 15, 2016

On Father's Day, it's all about your dad! Show him how much you care about him this Father's Day by doing something fun and healthy together instead of laying on the couch watching TV all weekend.

Cooking is a great way to treat your Dad on Father's Day!Cooking is a great way to treat your Dad on Father's Day!

Get Your Fitness On

If your dad's working nine to five every day, he probably wants to unwind by the time he gets home. Well, help him de-stress by going out to play some of his favorite sports and work up a sweat. It could be bowling, fly fishing, or even shuffleboard. Or maybe he's an avid golfer, but you're not too crazy about the game. Whatever sport it is, just suck it up and play a round together.

Get Cooking

The way to anyone's heart is usually through their stomach, so show your dad some love by whipping up some of his favorite meals! On this day, your dad should be able to eat whatever his heart desires, but if what he wants isn't good for his heart, make sure to put a healthy twist on it. If he craves chips and dip, make it homemade dip (so you know what's in it!)

If he loves pepperoni pizza, add a generous amount of mushrooms and green peppers so he'll get his daily serving of veggies. And if he likes bacon with his breakfast, make sure it's low-salt and also include some non-fat yogurt topped with lots of fruit to the meal.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!
