Some applause for great dads

ZenGate’s Baby Lily & Daddy!

Give some applause for great dads!

Gone are the days of dad working all day to come home to a pipe, slippers, and the evening paper while the kids sit waiting for dinner. This generation of fathers and step fathers are “all in” when it comes to child-raising. There’s more to a dad these days than little league coach. Men who play an active role in their children’s lives deserve a little more recognition.

Whether they are baby-wearing or carpooling, more dads are helping care for families “in the home,” some even full time. According to the US Census Bureau there were 93,000 stay-at-home-dads in the United States in 2000. Fast forward to 2012 and they reported 189,000 stay-at-home dads and it’s not only moms at “Mommy and Me” anymore!

Dads who work in the home chase kids, hold babies, sing lullabies, clean messes, play taxi driver, and juggle after school schedules. They get stressed out, touched out, and overwhelmed. These guys need “me time,” too. What does he do for down time? Work on motorcycles, play video games, hunting, fishing, workout, muscle melting massage?

Stay-at-home-dads aren’t the only awesome ones, though. Many working fathers don’t take a break when they arrive home but dive right in to home life. Cooking, cleaning, and playing with the kids is more than “pitching in,” it’s a part of life with a family. More and more dads share in the sometimes exciting, sometimes mundane activities called life.

Weekend dads are important, too. Sometimes circumstances arise in which a family lives apart. Trying to pack a week’s worth of time into a weekend can’t be easy. Going from a full house to an empty nest every other week can have an emotional effect, especially if they live miles away.

What can you do for the special man in your life who shares your home, your children, and your life? You could find tickets to his favorite baseball team’s game! Maybe there is a concert coming up he’d like to go to. Send him on a fishing/boating/hunting trip or motorcycle show/trip! Slip a muscle melting massage gift certificate into the stack of homemade cards from the kids. Heck, make him a card yourself! Cutting and painting construction paper sounds fun and he’ll know you’re “thank you” is coming from the heart!

5 Zenful New Year’s Resolutions

5 Easy New Year’s Resolutions to Lower Your Stress Level

5 Easy New Year’s Resolutions for More Zen

 Well, the warm & fuzzy feelings of Christmas are over and it’s time to start thinking about those New Year’s resolutions, intentions & wishes. So with an eye to the big picture and setting realistic intentions, there are 5 easy New Years resolutions that can lower your stress level in 2014 and bring in more zen:

  1. Meditate more often than you currently do – Mediation is a powerful stress reliever because it brings you into the current moment and keeps your attention from heading to the past or the future, where the majority of our stressors lie. The beauty of it is that there’s a type of meditation suitable for just about everyone; some forms involve sitting quietly, while others are more active like walking or coloring mandalas. The key is to find a style you like and then set a frequency and time limit that you know you can meet. That might mean 5 minutes a day, 20 minutes once a week, or 10 minutes 3 times a week… what ever works for you. The actual length and frequency are not as important as increasing the amount of time you meditate and doing it on a regular schedule.
  2. Just for Today be grateful for at least one thing – Nothing takes the stress down a notch quicker than being grateful does, and gratitude tends to build on itself. It works by taking some of your attention from what’s wrong, not good enough, or otherwise not meeting your expectations, and moving it toward something more positive. When you first start a gratitude practice, you may only be able to come up with one thing a day (and that may be a struggle some days). But if you’re anything like me, you’ll find that in time it gets easier. Your gratitude practice can be as formal or informal as you’d like, but some common ways include: keeping a gratitude journal, saying a quick but silent “thank you” whenever something sets off your gratitude detectors, or including gratitude items in your daily prayers.
  3. Get massage more often in 2014 – You knew this was coming, right? Massage not only eases stress-related muscle tension, it also causes the body to release a whole set of hormones that counteract the stress response. Just getting one more massage than you normally get is all it takes to succeed at this resolution. Just sayin…
  4. Try a new type of massage or bodywork. There are several of massage and bodywork techniques ZenGate Healing Arts offers. Some über relaxing and stress-relieving ones are: Zen & Hot Stone Massage, Zenful Soles Reflexology, Zen-Out Chakra Balancing Massage, Zenergy Healing Reiki, Zen-Drops: Young Living Raindrop Technique, Zen-n-Tonic BodyWraps and Access Bars.  Pick the one that intrigues or interests you the most and schedule that appointment. To learn more about each service click here.
  5. Make your self-care more affordable. Save money by buying a package from your massage therapist; you pay for all the sessions up front, but in exchange you get a discount on each massage. You can also ask friends and family members for massage gift certificates for birthday, anniversary, valentines day, sweetest day, Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other special occasion you can think of. You can also save up for a massage; it’s easier than you may think. If you save just $6/week (or $24/month), you’ll be able to afford a massage every 3 months!

See. Didn’t I tell you they were easy and stress relieving?

Now it’s your turn. Are you going to set a New Year’s resolution this year? If so, what’s it going to be??
