Getting About Slowly May Be an Opportunity
By Tom Herrin
As the world has taken measures to stay away from harm in recent times, many people have found themselves at home far more than they may have ever been before. While it is likely a real culture shock for many, it also poses some new opportunities. People live such active schedules that many never seem to slow down. This may mean that they spend much of their time going in different directions. With the present situation, many have been forced to spend much of this time together and may have discovered how they lack in this area. With the availability, or necessity, of this additional time with one another, there are more chances to improve relationships and overall health.
Many times, people tend to do their own things even when they are in the same room. It doesn't take a very keen observer to note that lots of people in a room may all be looking down at some device while they are at arm's length of others. This may be a great time to capitalize on this togetherness. Pulling out an old game or puzzle may take others by surprise but can soon turn into a good opportunity for some productive conversation. There are plenty of other things to do for those who are a little creative. Something as simple as a scavenger hunt around the property can be an interesting challenge.
Organize Some Group Exercise
It is sometimes difficult for people to get going with an exercise program when they are at home. This can be an exception to that generality. This is one of those times in which asking everyone to gather for a little exercise may not seem so odd. Doing so may be the start of a good practice. It can become an enjoyable time in which health can benefit as well. Taking turns leading the session can get everyone more involved. If some want to try something a little different, it may be even more fun. Playing some active games is not bad.
Grab Hold and Go
There is nothing quite like sitting together and interacting. We have found that each of us can learn to be better listeners and have a better understanding of others. We particularly enjoy eating together then spending some quality time in casual conversation. Just sitting around the table and talking is something that may be missing in the lives of many. I did this as a child, and we do it as a family now. We have found that it is often the best of times for all of us.
