Still Stay Home, Be Healthy, and Build Relationships
By Tom Herrin
No matter what someone may think, staying home as much as possible will continue to be something that may be the best strategy available for many. Even as people begin to move about more freely, the core of protecting themselves is to stay home. It is surely somewhat of a culture shock for many, but it can become a good thing in the lives of those who allow it. While they are together at home anyway, they may as well make the most of it. They may be able to improve their health and relationship at the same time.
Make the Time Work for You
Time often seems to be against people, or so they may believe. When they are trying to squeeze in all they can, there never seems to be an adequate amount of time. This may apply to time for others as well. While they are somewhat stuck at home, it may be a great time to cultivate some relationships in a positive manner. It can start with a game, craft, or puzzle. Once people sit down together to begin one of these endeavors, they may find it to be something that they get hooked on. It can be fun for any and all ages.
Never Forget to Exercise
No matter whether people are at home or away from it, exercise is an important part of maintaining good health. While spending more time at home, it can work out well to begin some group exercise. It is not all that difficult. Taking turns leading can be a way to get more people involved. These exercises don't have to be limited to the traditional ones either. People can be as creative as they want. Anything from hopscotch to dance moves can be enjoyable for most. The main thing is to get started and keep going. Forming good habits is always a good thing.
Develop Communication Skills
We can all benefit from better communication. Exercising together may help improve non-verbal communication. Sitting somewhere and listening may be the best method. I have learned that when I listen better, I am able to open communication with others. Once I keep my mouth shut, everyone else seems to be more open. It may just be me, or I just may be a slow learner. Whichever is the case, it seems to work well for me and our family.
