As many of my followers know, tomorrow I am leaving for Seattle with my family. I couldn’t be more emotionally ready for our getaway. It has been a long, long couple of weeks.
With all of this in mind, I would like to take the time to talk about family outings. Family outings are important for many reasons. You don’t have to spend a lot of money either. It can be as simple or extravagant as you wish. A multi thousand dollar vacation or a hike and a picnic.
There are 5 very important reasons you should not put this off any longer.
Getting outside of routine for family outings is very helpful to a stressed out individual. You can forget the worries of the world and enjoy the moment you are existing within.
2.) Family Cohesiveness
Families that do activities together find reasons to bond. It gives people a chance to enjoy a family experience outside of the confines of routine, away from stressors.
As a child, family vacations were such a special time. With my family, I created many happy and cherished memories. Now, I hope to bring that same magic to my children.
4.) New Experiences
By stepping away from the every day ordinary on family outings, you are giving your children and spouse a chance to try new things. New experiences can boost confidence going forward.
5.) New Perspective
By getting away, you can refresh. Often times, this leads to a happier homecoming. With the new experiences mentioned above, it can often lead to a higher perspective on life. Things that once had you at your wits end are no longer a big deal, now that you are well rested.
Make sure that you plan family outings. The memories will last a lifetime, and the rest is well deserved. Not only are family outings good for the family, but can provide much needed self care.
