Why Move More?

Finding simple ways to add movement in your day is scientifically proven to boost your mood.
Studies show physical activity triggers feel-good endorphins, while reducing symptoms of stress, anxiety and mild-to-moderate depression.
Bottom line: any extra movement counts towards improving your health.

The collective groan you just heard was Canadian kids reacting to the nation’s newest parking trend: Dad Parking.
We already know Dads park far away….so far away.
We’re encouraging all men to park like a dad, guilt-free. Because every extra step benefits your physical and mental health.
How to Park Like a Dad:
- Join CMHF Champions like Tommy Europe, Toby Hargrave, Buzz Bishop and others by finding the worst possible parking spots across Canada.
- Take a photo or video that shows just how far away you or your dad has parked and share it with #ParkLikeADad tagging @menshealthfdn. We’ll celebrate and share the healthy choice along with you.
