4 Ways to Show Your Family You Love Them
Get Off Your Phone
The average person now spends 3 hours and 35 minutes on their phones. Whether you’re living on social networking apps, obsessed with the news or a game fanatic, it’s time to put down the phone to focus on connecting with the people around you. Nothing shows your family that you care more than when you are mentally present and actively listening to what and how they say things. So ditch the device and get chatting with your children, you will be amazed at the things you’ll find out.
Make Tonight’s Meal Extra Special
Food is the language of love and it is super rewarding to feed your loved ones a special meal. And it doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours and hours slaving away. A small change in this week’s menu might be all your family needs to remind them that your love, effort and energy is infused into the food. We believe curry is the ultimate comfort food, so why not curry spice things up this week? If you need recipes, Rajah Curry Powder always delivers. All you need is a bit of curry powder and love.
Make Time for One-on-Ones
The quieter ones in your family may get drowned out by some of the louder members of your team. So it’s important to make sure you create one-on-one moments with all your loved ones (yes, even the loud ones) to really understand what is going on in their lives. Haven’t really spoken to your spouse this week? Go for a walk and remember to hold hands and chat. Is your teenaged son getting a bit grumpy? Take him out for a cool drink and remind him that everything will be OK in the end. These together moments are so special and will reinforce your family bond.
Consistency, Consistency, Consistency!
It’s easy to tell someone you love them. But words only take you so far, when actions really count. The simplest, albeit not the easiest way to show your family you love them is to be consistent with them. Be consistent with your rules, your behaviour and actions. Be there when it matters and stick to your promises. There is truly no better way to show someone you love them than by being there for them, consistently.
