The New Year brings an endless array of possibilities. Many people try
to focus on fixing things, trying new experiences, going on more adventures,
and bettering one’s self. If you are like most of us, you start
your resolutions strong, but then life gets in the way. Why not set resolutions
that you and your family can all pursue together? Not only will this bring
you closer, but you can also have people to hold you accountable. At Matthew
Sheasby, Attorney at Law, we want you to be able to spend quality time
together. That is why we suggest some resolutions you can follow with
those you love.
It seems that everyone and their mothers make it a priority to change their
diet, especially after the holidays. Why not actually keep this goal with
your mother, or any other family member you choose? If the whole family
decides to eat well together, not only will you not be alone, it might
be easier to rid the house of unhealthy snacks and foods.
Be More Active
In an age where it is easier to sit in front of a computer or T.V. screen,
you may need to make the conscious decision to get up and move around.
You and your family can take walks together or go to the beach / park.
You can take dance classes or go play a game of basketball in the backyard.
Whatever you choose, being active together can be a good way to bond.
Whether it is every week, every month, or every so often, make it a point
to have a night dedicated solely to the family. This can be your time
to play games, watch movies, and just spend quality time in each other’s
company. It will give you the opportunity to make memories you can cherish
in the years to come.
Explore New Places and Hobbies
Sometimes it can be tiring doing the same thing over and over again. In
this New Year, make it a point to try something new together. Whether
you explore your city, or try your hand at painting, exploring new places
and hobbies can be fun. You never know, maybe you are meant to be the
next Partridge family!
In a society that has endless means of communication, it can be difficult
to simply talk. Make it a point to turn off your digital devices, make
eye contact, and talk. You will be surprised what you can learn from each other.
