#7 Care For Yourself To Care For Others


Podcast #7: Care For Yourself To Care For Others

Care for yourself to care for others. Guys so often put everyone else before themselves. This mindset is passed down from generation to generation. While serving a good purpose, this can also be to the detriment of men themselves and their families. 

Not only are you important enough to care for yourself, but your family benefits by having a happier, healthier you. 

In this episode I talk about why fathers need to prioritize their own health, sanity, friends, and lives.
