Making Memories Tips for Keeping Family Time a PrioritySpending time with family is one of the most important parts of life, but can easily be neglected with busy schedules, and an overload of responsibilities. By establishing a few habits through simple steps you can begin to bond with each family member now and create stronger long-term relationships.

Plan Fun Activities

Although the living room is often the most common place for the family to congregate, it can often make for too much routine and repetitive time spent together, for a family that needs some variety. Try to plan a few fun nights each month for the family to go out, whether to a favorite restaurant, or to the local fair. By having fun together, it will be easier to bond and you will form true friendships within the family unit. Have each family member take a turn to plan the family activity each week and opt for activities that include going out for ice cream, spending time riding bikes, or enjoying time together in hot tubs, all activities that are low-stress and involve minimal planning and cost.

Forget About The Chores

According to The Quarterly Journal of Economics, having more time for leisure activities has risen since 1965 from four to eight hours a week, due to less time spent cooking and cleaning. By hiring a professional cleaning service once or twice a month, and cooking more simple and convenient meals, it will provide less stress when it comes to approaching family time for peace of mind.

Make Family Vacations a Tradition

Make it a rule to take a family trip together each year, which will make for valuable memories and intentional time where the family spends several days exploring a new place without interruption. Plan the vacation each year, and vote on what destination will be visited, along with the planned activities on the excursion. For kids, a trip to Disneyland or Disney World is appropriate, along with camping in Yosemite, taking a cruise to the Bahamas, or experiencing the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It will require time spent together planning the trip, and will help each family member to truly value and appreciate the tradition.

Eat Dinner Together

Make it a habit to always sit down for dinner together, whether over pizza, or a four-course meal. Schedule dinner for the same time every night, and ask each child to help with the cooking or setting of the table. It will provide a good amount of time each day of the week to practice communication and continue to get to know one another.
