Happy New Year! This is a time for reflecting over the past year, setting New Year resolutions, and making changes for an even better year in 2016. I was thinking about what I would like to improve on this year and thought it was worth sharing with everyone. It’s all about family time!Despite all of our crazy schedules, my resolution is to improve the quality and quantity of our family time by making sure that we eat dinner all together at least twice a week. This really gives us a chance to catch up on what’s happening with each other in school, at work, and socially. During dinner, there will be no television or cellphones so that we can have quality conversation with no distractions.Another plan is to go out to different cultural restaurants twice a month as a family. This will give us an opportunity to experience different foods and places together. We will also be having “family game night” once a month to be able to laugh, bond, and have fun together without going out and spending money.
These are just a few ideas to try if you are looking to improve the quality of your family time.
