Fun and Healthy Father's Day Activities

Tee off with your dad!
Father's Day Activities

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

Get Your Fitness On

If 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. Remember, it's his day, not yours.

Get Cookin'

The way to a man's heart is usually through his 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 he wants food that isn't necessarily good for his heart, make sure to put a healthy twist on 'em. Like if he craves chips and dip, get the low-fat kind. 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.

Be a Rock Star

Just cuz Dad is old(er) doesn't mean he'll ever stop wanting to party like a rock star. So ask him to join you in the living room to play Guitar Hero or Rock Band! Face off to see who can rock out the hardest!

Have Your Say

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
