The definition of “dad” has changed in the 21st century, as has the role of the Physician Dad.

By utilizing my knowledge as well as those of experts in the various fields of the 6 B’s (or core foundations), I am here to help any physician dad become the parent they were meant to be.

The 6 B’s include:

  • BRAIN – How your thoughts and feelings directly affect everything you do in parenting.
  • BODY – Healthy eating, exercise, sleep. All of this plays a direct role in how you parent and how your children view a healthy lifestyle.
  • BELIEFS – Religion. Faith. Race. Gender roles. Politics. Sexual orientation. ALL of these topics and more are derived early in life through your child’s development of their subconscious mind and belief system. Learn how YOU can directly affect this.
  • BETTER HALF – Your relationship with your spouse, significant other, or lack of a partner can directly play a role in your child’s development, behaviors, and future relationships
  • BUSINESS – Your work life directly and indirectly affects your home life. It may be the way you feel, the hours you work, or the attitude you have about your career that can all directly improve or interfere with your parenting.
  • BUCKS – Money is a tool to get to the life we desire. Understanding how your money works, the best way to protect it, and findings ways to earn more while working less can all improve your life at home.

Blue Zones Part 4 – How to Apply This to Being a Physician Dad Imperfect Dad MD Podcast with Dr Jeremy Toffle

The last 3 weeks I have discussed the book Blue Zones by Dan Buettner and how different people within these regions have managed to lived well into their 100's and remained healthy.  In today's episode I am going to take everything I have learned from the book and apply it to the 6 B's of being a Physician Dad – your Brain, Body, Beliefs, Better-Half, Business, and Bucks.  Each of these Blue Zones has a direct and indirect effect on ALL of these foundations.  It is up to us to determine how best to utilize this information and apply it to our own daily routines to provide us with a longer and healthier life.  Next week, we get back into interviewing other dads like yourself.This week's sponsor is from CareCloud.   You can check them out at https://doctorpodcastnetwork.com/carecloudInterested in more topics not covered here?  Check out my blog at https://www.imperfectdadmd.com  to see if I discussed it there.  Can't find what you are looking for?  Send me an email either at my website above or at imperfectdadmd@gmail.com and I can try to cover it in my next show.

  • Remember, you may not relate to EVERY episode out there completely. It is important to recognize that we all go through parenting and being a dad in different ways. Although we may not all be similar, we can still learn from one another. Even if an episode doesn’t sound like it applies to you, I bet you will get something out of it.

My main goal is to help guide other dads with their own sense of imperfections, and hopefully we can all help each other along the way. However, we can’t accomplish this without YOUR reviews.
