Make time for you and your loved ones. A lot of time I focus on making time for yourself and the things you enjoy, but what about your loved ones and things that you enjoy doing together? Sundays are great days to get things done that you may not be able to do during the week because you are too busy. Make a list of fun family activities that you all enjoy and make a plan to do at least one of them every month. If you are feeling ambitious, try doing two of them a month. Here are some ideas:
- Go to the movies
- Go out to dinner
- Go for a hike
- Go for a bike ride
- Go camping
- Sleep under the stars (even if it’s just in your backyard)
- Cook dinner as a family having each person pick out one part of the meal (i.e. main dish, vegetable, grain, dessert, etc.). Getting kids involved in food preparation will entice them to try new foods and use some of their creativity.
What are some of your favorite family activities?
