Thinking Outside the Tie Box

This year for Father’s Day give your dad the gift of health! Improving your dad’s wellness will help him enjoy more time with his loved ones. Sticking to a healthier lifestyle is easier when you have people to support you, so here are some wonderful, healthy gift ideas every dad will dig.

Health at Home

Get inspired and cook a healthy, homemade meal. Making nutritious meals is a fun and easy way to help keep your father fit. A healthy diet rich in fruits and veggies can do wonders to prevent illnesses including heart disease, the leading cause of death in men. For more information about heart health, check out

Stepping in Style  

Does your dad love technology and exercise? Get your dad a stylin’ fitness tracker so he can keep up with his exercise regime and look cool doing it. Regular physical activity can help maintain a healthy weight and decrease the risk for serious health issues like type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. Fitness trackers can do everything from tracking steps, to counting both calories and hours slept, calculating distance traveled, and more!

Movin’ and Groovin’

Help your father stay movin’ and groovin’ by signing him up for yoga, karate, or golf lessons. You can help your dad reach his doctor-recommended 150 minutes of physical activity a week by giving him a package of lessons for his favorite sport or even a gym membership with personal training sessions.

Chill Out Daddy-O

Good health requires not only a balanced diet and exercise, but also less stress and more relaxation. For some dads, nothing says relaxation like an afternoon in a hammock. Others find their peace and quiet taking a hike in the mountains, or paddling the rivers. Finding serene activities together is just what dad needs to refresh and rejuvenate. 

Make this Father’s Day one about making healthy choices as a family! Harbin Clinic cares about fathers, dads, daddies, pops, and papas and wishes every one of them a healthy, happy Father’s Day.
