Let Us Improve Together
By Tom Herrin
The present times are some in which no one really knows what will come next. One can only speculate or wish. There are very few who thought a few months ago that things would be anything like they are today. The world has been saddled with a tremendous weight that has obviously exceeded the planning ability of any nation or group of people. The freedoms that most Americans treasure so much have been shrouded as the need for emergency measures has grown. As a result, many people have lived life in virtual seclusion for weeks at the very least. As some of these limitations are being lifted, many are beginning to return to a more open life. While they are still spending more time at home, it can be a great time to make some traditions that may carry over.
Lots of people seem to talk to communicate with everyone except those they share a dwelling with. As they spend a little more time together, they may be struggling with sharing the same space. Even as things are beginning to open up more, life continues to be much different than it was just a few short months ago. Why not try something radical such as pulling out a board game or some similar activity. If that is not so appealing, a baking contest or doing a craft together may be the key to stimulating more conversation. Spending a little more time under the same roof as others is a good reason to begin to talk more. It may be surprising just how much can be learned about others.
Place Some Importance on Exercise
Whether people admit it or not, they all need exercise. It is usually more than they presently do. Since so many are spending this extra time at home, it may be a good time to begin working out as a group. Taking turns leading may get every one more involved and committed. Being creative can boost interest and add spice. Even simple games or doing some gardening together may help fill this void. If it starts a new tradition, everyone will be that much healthier.
Let the Good Times Roll
Most of us will likely be in for a new, and good, experience as we seek to make the time we have together be of greater quality. Many of us are finding that enjoying one another can be simple. As I drive around, I am struck by the appearance of the neighborhoods that reminds me of something right out of the 1950s. It is obvious that more people are at home and communicating across the yard to a neighbor. This is a stark contrast to the last 50 years or so for most of us. Let's make it stick.
