Divorced Dad Seeks Mojo

Dear Michele,

I am a divorced dad, father of two precious girls (6 and 9) who is trying to stay active in their lives and yet also look out for myself. How can I become active again?

— Dad

Dear Dad,

To be active, you just have to do stuff. When you say “active”, you could mean many things — but my guess is that you want to meet people, do interesting things and have some fun. Am I right? Best way to do this — volunteer at a local charity you can support. Let’s take a food pantry, for instance. Offer to stock shelves, run an inventory, unload a truck. You’ll feel good, you’ll be active, and you’ll meet people. Some of them may even be women!

Many food-based non-profits welcome children — so you could take your girls and start teaching them the importance of helping out and … being active. All my best to you!
