Once the excitement of big family gatherings and New Year’s resolutions wears off, it’s all too easy to fall back into the same old traps of modern life — the ones that make many of us feel too busy, too tired and too stressed to prioritize family dinners. We know from our work with families that most people believe that family dinner is important, but can’t always figure out how to turn their positive thoughts about dinnertime into actions.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, you’re probably thinking of ways to show a little extra love to the important people in your life. So how about showing a little extra love to the THINGS that are important, too? By increasing your commitment to family dinners this February, you’ll also be giving your family a loving gift that will last long after the 14th.
Commit to planning.
