Summer Holidays – A Time To Reconnect
Why Family Time Is More Important Now Than Ever Before
Summer Holidays are now in full swing and as a father of two boys this is my favorite time of year. Everyone is now past the midway point of the calendar year and it’s the downhill run to the festive period…..another particular favorite of mine! I titled this blog Summer Holidays – A Time To Reconnect because that’s exactly what it is for my family.
We’ve escaped the hustle and bustle of city life and headed to the beach for some sun, sand and swimming but also to refocus and realign our family values. It’s so easy with the demands of daily survival to lose sight of what’s really important. Everyone is busy trying to please someone else and during this process it’s often those closest to us that we neglect because we tell ourselves that ‘they understand’.
I know that I often find myself saying ‘in a minute’ to my boys when they’re trying to explain or show me something that they’re excited about. With our lives now heavily occupied by the digital world we are at risk of missing some wonderful, real world moments.
This week I plan on eradicating the phrase ‘in a minute’ and using the Summer Holidays as my chance to reconnect with those that mean the most to me – my family.
Oh, I’ll also be challenging my boys at Exam Elf! If you have an iPhone or iPad and want to try out Exam Elf, you can download it here.
