In the midst of a high-demanding football schedule, being a loving father to three beautiful children, and continuing to be a devoted husband to his wife Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady is ready to “Do Nothing.”
The professional athlete and ambassador for UGG has joined forces with the brand in a new “Do Nothing” campaign in an effort to proclaim that men everywhere deserve to literally … do nothing.
“It’s just about men being in their own environment, chilling, relaxing and finding time for themselves to do the things they love to do,” Brady, 39, exclusively tells PEOPLE about the campaign.
He added, “I think it’s important for everybody to find the space for themselves. You always need that. When those airplanes are going down, they say put your mask on first so you can help other people. I think you need to find the oxygen yourself so that you can be the person you want to be. If you’re helping everyone else all the time and you never have time for yourself, you can get worn out pretty quickly.”
Brady, who is used to a fast-paced style of living, explained that he doesn’t take for granted the solo time he sparingly gets.
“Sometimes it’s just five minutes, sometimes for me it’s just a car ride home,” he says. “You just don’t get as many opportunities, but when you do get them, you make sure that you take advantage. I think it’s just finding the right time and space to take for yourself so you can focus on the things you want to do and accomplish.”
Though the father of three is constantly struggling to find time for himself, he sure does enjoy the time he gets to spend with his “great life partner.”
“I like whatever it is, as long as we’re together,” says Brady. “Whether it’s movies or dinner or walks or whatever, our lives are busy. Especially during the football season for me, I don’t get a lot of time, but whenever I do get the time, it’s a precious time for me.”
With football season upon us, Brady brushes off the topic of retirement in the near future.
“I love playing football,” the Patriots quarterback says. “I love preparing for it and thinking about it. I’ve been that way since I’ve been three years old, so it’s hard to imagine not doing it. Although I know it will happen at some point, I’m not ready for that any time soon.”
