How To Spend More Time With Family and Closed Ones

We are in the last month of the year, and the year has been like none other. With the pandemic wave still going strong; our lifestyle has changed. Work from home and staying indoors for the longest period of time has become the new normal. Well, there is a bright side to everything, and so do this period of uncertainty. This period of lockdown, curfews, and staying indoors have given all of us the opportunity to spend quality time with family and closed ones, thus strengthening the bonds. This period made us realize the importance of having a family, appreciating what you have, and how to slow down. 

Though the offices are reopening, people are now again seen flooding the markets, and life seems to be going on the old track, but it’s absolutely important to be with your family. So, we have gathered the best ways to have fun with all those who matter the most to you. 

  1. Family Dinner: At the end of the day, have a family dinner. Make it the house rule. No matter what, the family have at least one meal together, and night time is the best. During the dinner; you all can also discuss how the day went and share some giggles. After all, the family that eats together stays together. Each day, prepare one meal that is the favourite of at least one family member. 
  2. Love Night: If you are in a relationship or married, have a love night on weekends. Make arrangements for snacks and drinks. Then, as per you and your partner’s interest, you can spend the night. You can binge-watch Netflix and romantic movies by cuddling up in the blanket, or you could both enjoy your snacks and drinks in a cosy setup. Dim the lights, light up the candles and have your meal. You both can also spend alone time with each other in a secluded spaced say balconies or bedroom. Dim the lights, light up the candles and have your meal.
