Make the time to connect with family


tellyourfavesConnecting with your family is crucial to everyone’s well-being. Here are some things to keep in mind as you make the effort.

1. You do have time.
Balancing all of life’s demands can be stressful and time-consuming. It can often feel like there isn’t enough time to really connect with your family—it can even feel like another chore on your to-do list. See if you can slow down enough to find small moments in each day to make a connection with each other—from saying “good morning” to your children in a loving way or doing something thoughtful, there are so many small moments ripe for connection.

2. It’s not all about you.
It’s hard not to take things personally when someone speaks to you in a rude or unkind way, but often these behaviors are coming from a place of discomfort within the other person.

Doing this can open you both up, releasing defenses and leading toward communicating and connecting in a different way. read more
