How to Reconnect With Loved Ones

When life gets busy, it’s easy to forget to take the time to slow down and connect with the people who matter most in your life. Here are three, simple ways to spend more quality time with your loved ones:

Cuddle with your kids
Sit on your child’s bed, and gently smooth his hair as you softly wake him. Or if you’re dealing with a very young child, lie beside him and gently hug him awake. Such a moment will send a quiet surge of joy through your entire day.

Make dinner plans
Eating dinner together and sharing your day is one of the best ways to reconnect with your family and friends. Plan ahead for what you’ll have: who needs to pick up groceries, who will cook, and when everyone should be at the dinner table. You’ll eat healthier, for less money, and with less hassle by following this ritual.

Hug and kiss everybody (Spot and Fluffy, too) before you head out the door
Connecting with ones you love soothes stress, and provides you with a perfect start to your busy day: You’ll be happier and more connected as you shift into work mode, while at the same time staying focused on what’s really important.
