FATHER IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH - Fatherhood is full of responsibilities and hard decisions - and sometimes it may seem that taking care of your children is ultimately wearing you down.  But, in fact, being a father is one of the healthiest professions on the planet. Now I know all you dads probably think I’m crazy - especially those fathers who are currently dealing with teenagers. But it’s true.  Fatherhood is good for your health.
If you were to sit down and look at all of the health decisions you have made since you became a father, I bet you would be amazed as to how many positive steps you have taken towards a healthier lifestyle. First, statistics show that men who smoke have a higher rate of quitting when they become fathers. 

Also, if you grew up not being physically active, once you have a child, you have no choice but to move in order to keep up with them.  And sometimes, this can inspire men to actually start doing some exercise. Fathers, I bet you’ve seen a change in your diet, as well. Being a father means you have to provide healthy food for your child, and there’s no better way to get them to eat well than to lead by example.
But most importantly, the greatest health benefit of all comes from the love that you feel when you see what your children can accomplish. And the unconditional love that they have for you - that love helps you to forget the ugliness in this world - will improve your mind and your outlook for the future.

Every year millions of families celebrate Father's Day to honor a man with heart who leaves his mark on the lives of his children. Father's Day is a tribute to that special person, who with love and patience, educates and guides the children to a productive life. A dad can also listen and encourage them in losses of life. We agree with the thought of Dr. Manny Alvarez, who in his article says: “To me, fatherhood is a privilege that should not be squandered.  And on this Father’s Day, I want to congratulate all the fathers who take their job seriously.” We must also honor today our spiritual father, the Guru, and the father of all living entities, the Loving Supreme Lord.

The Supreme Lord Śrī Krishna is the father of all living entities, who are placed in different high and low positions according to their desires or aspirations. A sane person must know for certain that a living being, however powerful he may be, is neither absolute nor independent. All living beings must accept the origin of their specific power ... The obedient son of the father never goes against the will of the father and therefore passes life very peacefully in concurrence with the head of the family, the father. Similarly, the Lord being the father, all living beings should fully and satisfactorily discharge the duty and will of the father, as faithful sons. This very mentality will at once bring peace and prosperity to human society.
