Have you ever thought that due to your hectic routines what you are missing? You are missing something very important that is your time with family. According to some studies children need the time of their parents and they need to feel wanted and special. Same is the case for parents. If they are growing old they need the time of their children.
Spending quality time with family can make you feel happy and emotionally stable. But what are we doing? We are so busy in our lives that we can’t give time to our families. This routine starts from Monday and mostly ends on Sunday and the cycle repeats again and again. As week days are busy we have busy weekends. This is something that isn’t acceptable for healthy lifestyle. Life is too short to enjoy. It is important for all of us to live a healthy life by spending time with our loved ones. Let’s discuss that how we can spend a good time with our family.
Tips to help you spend quality weekend with family
Some people arrange family trips on weekends. If we can’t arrange trips with our families at least we can have lunch or Night Dinners together. Having dinners together can make you share your important things with your family or you can do conversation with your loved ones on any topic.
If you have a nuclear family and your grandparents are alive what you can do is to go on a weekend and meet them. Give them a surprise and let them feel special. Try to spend a memorable time with them
Put your work aside on weekend and give priority to your family. Go to parks or have morning/evening walks together. If you want to do something satisfactory then what you can do is to go to an orphanage with your family and spend time there with orphans and give them charity/gifts too.
If you are married and you and your spouse are job doers, both of you should spare time for each other and make each other feel special. You can watch movies together by staying at home or go somewhere to spend time together.
We have busy routines, we can’t give time to our families but we have time for social media. Remember one thing the family needs undivided attention. So when you are with your family turns your cell phones off.
While spending time with your children try not to turn your television on. Ask them about their studies about the activities they have with their friends. And ask them about the rose and thrones of their lives.
If you and your family love to read, select a story that can be humorous or informative and ask one member of your family to read that loud so that you will enjoy the unfolding of the story together.
Spending time with family can build self-esteem and self-confidence. It strengthens the bonding between the members of the family. You can create memories by having memorable time. Taking part in meaningful activities with your family can decrease your stress and behavioral problems. And this can make you feel fresh after a long,tired and hectic week.
