The benefits to Tai Chi are astounding—think: reduced stress, improved sleep, less pain, and increased strength and flexibility, according to the Harvard Health. And what’s even better is this form of exercise is low-impact and done in slow-motion—great for dads who may be struggling with pain.
While going to or finding a Tai Chi class may be difficult, you could get Dad a DVD to help him learn the basics. This one in particular from Body Wisdom comes highly rated and is great for beginners, showing the movements from all angles so it’s easy to follow along. Bonus: You can do it together!
