Dads Need Time Off Too!

Posted on Jun 18 2015 - 6:25pm by Johnny B

As a father, I do not have as much time to myself as when I was a young man bursting with too much youth and even more testosterone. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a dad, and when my life with my family finally started, I was pretty much satisfied- however, I do need some play time in order to work off the stress and make sure that my attitude as positive as possible with my family.

Here are a couple of things that I do during my free time and still be a good dad:


Go to the gym

Hitting the gym might not sound like a fun pastime, but it’s a game-changer for boosting your energy levels. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to decreased testosterone, affecting your mood, muscle mass, and energy. Mixing up your physical activities keeps things interesting and your body active. However, if you’re experiencing significant drops in testosterone, TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) could be a solution worth exploring. Finding a reputable clinic for TRT Santa Monica, or in your local area could help revitalize your well-being. A boost in testosterone can help you get rid of lethargy and make you more active. Remember, staying active is key, but there’s help available when you need it.
Play games online

I started playing bingo a little while ago, because it was both relaxing and a chance to get lucky and win some extra cash. Win-win, right? However, driving out and finding a bingo hall with games that would match my schedule was impossible. While searching online for a general itinerary of the halls in my area, I came across a website that would compare the best bingo sites online. After clicking it, I was entered into the world of online bingo, where I was able to do my pastime while relaxing at home or in the office during break. The winnings were even real, which simply added to the appeal of it- it was just like real bingo that was ten times as accessible. I really began to get into it and I’m still enjoying it to this day. I’m still trying to seek out new bingo sites but I don’t think I’ll have a hard time finding them. It’s a real time saver, this.


Plan activities with your kids

While this technically might not count as time off, it won’t have to take a chunk off your “breaks”. Having fun with your kids will shake off the feeling of being a duty, and you get to enjoy your time. Go kart racing, play some video games or even play paint ball, and you would have given them a good amount of attention while doing something you enjoy yourself- that’s two balls out of the park.

You can read books, invest yourself into a TV series or take an extra class. Just make sure to budget your time well, and remember your responsibilities.
