Have you ever considered doing a job that involves the outdoors and being able to put your creativity to the test by building things and so on and so forth? I recently learned from sources in school that being a contractor you can earn about $20 per hour. That is if you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty and exerting some labor. Of course, this would have to be your passion or something you love doing because if you don’t love what you do then you won’t be as successful in it.
Growing up, I witness my dad build all sorts of things from tables to designing walls to building infrastructure way back in the Philippines. When I came to America with my father at a young age one of the things that we would do to bond was build certain things. It would even be as simple as hooking up a door knob or adjusting the shower hose. All of these memories led up to me becoming a person very passionate with this type of work. Now that I’m a father myself, I have accustomed this sort of tradition with my own children. I must say that bonding with my children with this sort of work has made me a better father and has made my children interested with this field of work just like how my father influenced me with this passion of his.
A lot of men have forgotten the beauty of getting their hands dirty and doing something outside that involves labor such as installing a satellite dish or making shelves for the garage to put garden tools on. Things like this don’t necessarily define how manly you are but it certainly defines how industrious you are and how good you make use of your time to be more productive especially during your days off.
I have noticed that my father at the age of 86 and as result of doing a lot of yard work has remained quite agile and strong physically and mentally. One day I asked him what his secret was because I’ve noticed that he moves around as though he’s just a 20-year-old man. He told me that his best kept secret is just getting enough exercise outside like doing yard work. In addition to the physical aspect, he reports that it has helped him sharpen his mind in terms of his analytical thinking. Currently, he is still working for garage door repair frisco tx.
Certainly, this is not the type of job for everyone and I’m not saying that this is the only way to keep healthy and young. But what I am saying is that it really depends on how you perceive the kind of work you do and how positive you are about that life style. We all should know that the less stress we have, and the happier we are in whatever we do, this in turn produces more health, and vigor created in the biochemistry of our bodies.
