Can you believe that it’s almost 2020? 2019 has certainly flown by, and your family is most likely ready to kick off the new year with a fun, fresh start. New Year’s Resolutions are a motivating way to start on a new leaf. However, these newly-found goals can sometimes be too ambitious and end shortly after the second week of January. It doesn’t have to be that way! Resolutions are a great way to get all of your family involved in something bigger than yourselves. Check out these attainable, creative family ideas for New Year’s Resolutions.
Volunteer work is a wonderful way to bring your family together for a meaningful cause. Whether your goal is to volunteer once during the year or once every month, this is an awesome way to build up your children’s character and have that special bonding time. There are countless volunteer opportunities. From visiting a nursing home to delivering meals to those in need, it won’t be hard for your family to tackle this resolution in 2020!
The sad truth about the recent decade is that families have grown more attached to their electronic devices than ever before. Make this the year that your family doesn’t turn on the TV or pick up their cell phone during a meal. Replace screen time with quality family time. Whether it’s going on walk without any electronics or simply shutting off all electronics after a certain time in the evening, this goal will be worth it. This new year is the perfect time to start implementing these practices before they become habits.
Practice More Gratitude
A fun, sustainable New Year’s Resolution for the family should include practicing more gratitude. Sometimes days and even months go by where we don’t reflect on the blessings in our lives. Try picking a day out of the week to practice gratitude with your family. For example, set aside time Friday before dinner to talk about what your family is thankful for that week. This will get your family into the habit of practicing gratitude.
Happy New Year! Have an amazing, happy, and healthy 2020.
