Busy Dad's Guide to Total Health

Busy Dad’s Guide to Total Health


We don’t realize how important our health is until we lose it. No man wants poor health to get in the way of becoming the best version of himself, but how do we make health a priority when life gets in the way?

Today Dr. Ryan Wohlfert is back on The Dad Edge to give you the busy dad’s guide to total health. This list of simple hacks for fitness, nutrition, and sleep will fit into any lifestyle. Best of all, these habits can be incorporated into your existing schedule without having to give up other aspects of your life.

Don’t wait to improve your health. Start today!

Busy Dad’s Guide to Total Health

FITNESS

  • Save the drive time to the gym by working out at home.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to take walks and runs with the dog or your family.
  • Do isometric exercises in the car or at your desk.
  • Be active and get involved while coaching kids.
  • Do 10-minute mini workouts of squats, push ups or burpees throughout the day. These will have a cumulative effect.

DIET

  • Ensure you’re getting greens, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins by setting up daily smoothies.
  • Plan your meals out for the week to avoid the last-minute need for fast food and take out dinners.
  • Make easy nutritious dinners ahead of time in the crock pot, like soups and stews.
  • Use apps to make sure you and your spouse are on the same page with meal planning and shopping.

SLEEP

  • If you can’t increase your quantity of sleep, increase the quality.
  • Set a time to turn off all devices and TVs.
  • Take the TV out of your bedroom.
  • We need thirty to thirty-five 90-minute sleep cycles per week, so it is possible to catch up on sleep cycles by napping and catching up on your days off.

Fighting the Busyness Epidemic

Fighting the Busyness Epidemic


Most of us are busy all the time. We feel stuck and overwhelmed. This is because being busy is not necessarily being productive. Fighting the busyness epidemic starts with setting boundaries and being disciplined about what’s most important.

People want something from us every minute of every day, and we don’t know how to say no. We get sucked into a vortex of email, social media, and phone calls. We waste our time and energy on obligations and distractions that don’t move our lives forward. The most meaningful aspects of our lives are neglected.

If your marriage is heading toward a bad place, how much time are you spending learning how to reconnect with your wife? If you find yourself losing patience with your kids because you’re overwhelmed, are the things using up your time and energy worth it? What about your finances? What have you done to be proactive about budgeting, saving, and investing?

Today, we’re going to talk about fighting the busyness epidemic with a simple morning ritual that will help you discern what’s important to you, set boundaries with yourself and others, and say no to anything that does not serve you.

Tips for Eliminating Busyness

  • Every morning, create a handwritten plan of the essential things you need to do. Stick to these items to avoid being a victim to whatever people want from you in the moment. List 3 professional goals and 3 personal goals for your day.
  • Define high-value activities in your life and prioritize time for them. E.g. learning, reading, fitness, diet, family, and spiritual time.
  • Do not check email or social media when you first wake up. Designate a time period each day for answering emails and messages.
  • Limit social media and other internet activities using a timer.
  • Don’t pick up the phone every time it rings. Set aside a time to return calls.
  • Learn to say NO. If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no!

The Holy Grail of Work-Life Balance with James Sudakow

Is work-life balance an unattainable myth? Most of us have tried everything to evenly distribute our time and energy across work, life, and family. Many of us may have also discovered that this is one of the most difficult things to achieve. It almost seems impossible. But it’s not.

Today’s guest is James Sudakow. He is the father of four kids and the author of Out of the Blur: A Delirious Dad’s Search for the Holy Grail of Work-Life Balance. He used to suffer from superhero syndrome, trying to be everything to everyone all the time. Eventually, he realized that he wasn’t showing up in the way that he wanted to at home or at work and came up with his own plan to analyze his behavior and change his ways.

In this episode, James Sudakow talks about the superhero syndrome and outlines the common traps we fall into when it comes to prioritizing our to do list. He gives practical solutions for breaking common habits that suck our time and energy and shows us that a sane, productive, fulfilling life is not as mysterious as we think.

How to Optimize The Structure of Work, Family, and Fulfillment with Dave Hollis

Can work-life balance ever be achieved?

Our guest today is Dave Hollis, and he says work-life balance is unattainable. There is no such thing because our lives constantly fluctuate. Sometimes, our kids need us. At other times, our marriage requires more attention. Maybe our health has been neglected and we need to focus on taking care of our bodies. There will also be points in our lives where work demands all of our energy. Life is unpredictable and we must be prepared to adapt.

We are stoked to have Dave Hollis on The Dad Edge. Dave worked for Disney for 17 years selling movies like Star Wars and The Avengers to theaters, and he recently left his position to help his wife Rachel develop her business. Dave tells us why he quit what most people would consider a dream job and how he and his wife grow their media company while raising four kids. He also talks about their technique called ‘frontloading’ to optimize the structure of work, family, and fulfillment for an incredible life.

'Your kids only have one experience that they know is normal—the one you create for them. They are watching us pursue our dreams ... we are modeling for them.'—Dave Hollis #parenting #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #dadlife Click To Tweet

 

Dave Hollis

Dave is the father of four and married to NY Times Bestselling Author, Rachel Hollis. She began with an event planning business that morphed in to a lifestyle blog, which eventually became Chic Media. Dave was in the sales side of the movie business. He made lots of money, but he didn’t feel like he was challenged. He made the bold choice to leave his job to help Rachel scale up her business. They moved from the outskirts of LA to a small town in Texas where they publish content, podcasts, and books. They also organize events and have launched a line of apparel and other products. Dave says they still like each other after six months of working together, but they have their communication and planning down to a science. They call it ‘frontloading’ and it is how they structure their lives for greatness.

'You can find every excuse why you’re not currently having the intimate relationship you want with your spouse.'—Dave Hollis #relationships #marriage #intimacy #communication Click To Tweet

What You’ll Learn

  • Why you have to acknowledge that you’re not going to “do it all”
  • How Dave got comfortable with the fact that work-life balance is not a possibility
  • How Dave and Rachel use a community of family, nannies, and babysitters to help with their four kids
  • How they deal with judgement about their parenting techniques
  • What ‘frontloading’ is and how and when they do it
  • How to delegate responsibilities to avoid resentment
  • Dave’s recovery from codependency
  • How to stop feeling guilty for other people’s judgements
  • Using apps to coordinate family activities
  • Why health is the foundation of his family’s life
  • Dave and Rachel’s non-negotiable weekly date night
  • Why Dave and Rachel take two vacations–one with the kids and one without them
  • How Dave and Rachel make out regularly
  • The Hollis’ experience with foster children (one of whom they adopted)
  • Why you must fuel your kids’ passions (not what you think they should be interested in)
  • The importance of letting go and allowing your kids to have their own experiences without you
  • How to reach for uncertainty to find growth and fulfillment

 

'You will not be the single force that shapes the way your child develops into an adult.'—Dave Hollis #parenting #helicopterparenting #dads #fathers #fatherhood Click To Tweet
