David Wimberly is Restore’s Chief of Staff to the CEO and a father of four children. While men’s health is important to him, it’s also important to David to get dad time in as well.
According to David, it’s a fine balancing act. He tries to make his self care a time to also engage and challenge his children. And he’s also teaching his children the value in doing the work. For example, he started with a simple chore for each of his kids during the summer vacation: Do one physical thing each day. And they’re adapting to a more physical lifestyle as a result.
In this video, we asked David about how he approached men’s health, and how he balances his time. And the main issue for David was setting a good lesson for his children. “It’s tough for me to do something on my own. I want to engage with them and I want them to see that it’s important to do something.”
But in the process, he’s taking care of himself and challenging his children: To work hard, to know the value of exercise and also build their resilience to stress.
Watch the full video above and ask yourself (if you happen to be a dad), how are you challenging your children to value health and exercise?
