New Year’s resolutions don’t always have to be individual goals. Setting up a few resolutions as a family can help you all become stronger and happier as a unit. Depending on your family’s lifestyle, these New Year’s resolutions may be a good start for 2021.
Plan Family Dinners
If your family members have hectic schedules and end up eating dinner on the run or at different times in the evening, plan one day a week to have a sit-down dinner together. Invite the extended family as well to get everyone in the same room at once. Prepping the meal as a family can be a great time to bond, along with sitting around the table and sharing stories during dinner.
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we should be grateful for what we have. In 2021, try to practice gratitude as a family. Share the things you appreciate with one another and feel your positive attitudes soar.
Go on a Family Trip
Everyone needs a vacation now and then, which is why vacationing is an excellent New Year’s resolution to make as a family. Vacations are perfect for experiencing new things together. Fly across the country with your siblings for a sibling bonding trip or grab the whole family, including the grandparents, for a big family road trip.
Host a Game Night
Consider making family dinner night an evening filled with activities. After dinner, encourage everyone to unplug from technology and spend the night huddling around a board game. You’ll create lasting memories on game night that everyone will appreciate in the future.
Learn Something New
Every year, we should strive to learn something new. Why not do it as a family? From new languages to instruments to recipes, get together and find a hobby or skill you’d all like to learn.
It’s essential to keep our loved ones close moving into the new year. Try a few of these New Year’s resolutions to make as a family to bring your family closer together.
