5 Ways to Spend Quality Time with Your Loved Ones
Hey gals, we hope you’re having an incredible week! You may have noticed that we frequently talk about the importance of spending quality time with loved ones. Because quality time is SO important we think it would be helpful to explain what quality time is, why it is important and what it looks like in real life. Quality time can be defined as the act of spending time together and giving one another undivided attention which means no tv, no phones and no distractions. Why is quality time so important? Quality time provides you with the opportunity to: 1. Communicate what is going on in your lives 2. Engage in activities that put the focus back on your relationship 3. Show that you prioritize spending time together and 4. Have fun together. The way you each of you chooses to spend quality time together may differ but that’s not important. What is important is that you are willing to find a way to make quality time with your loved ones a reality! Here are five ways we spend quality time with our loved ones:
Share a Meal- Family meal time is a sacred time that physically, mentally and emotionally nourishes people. Want to hear more about this tip? Check out this post!
Praying together- by praying together you experience God’s presence more fully than when you pray by yourself. If you have little ones, a kid friendly bible might be a wonderful resource!
Make a family night a regular occurrence- planning gatherings that focus primarily on togetherness is a wonderful way to build quality time into relationships. Some of our favorite family include board games, themed dinners and charades galore!
Take a trip together- taking a trip with your loved ones is a great way to bond over unique experiences and make memories together.
Unplug from technology- by logging out and shutting down you eliminate any potential distraction making it easier to focus on the people in front of you rather than those behind the screen.
