3. Take a Walk A friend of mine says one of their favorite activities to do together as a family is go for a walk after dinner. My great grandmother and I used to do the same thing when I was a child, and though I have forgotten so many things from my childhood, our walks together still stand out. They were happy moments when we simply enjoyed each other and our surroundings. It doesn’t matter where you walk. It could be around your neighborhood, a local park, or even the countryside. Take time to point out unique events or objects to your family members. What matters most is that you are open to discovery—together. And the best part? It helps you stay fit. 4. Assign Each Person a Day Pick a day of the week and make it someone’s day. I recommend giving the kids weekends because weekdays can get pretty busy with school and sports. When someone’s day comes around, help make it special for him or her. Perhaps they get to choose what everyone eats for dinner, or they’re allowed to pick the book, movie, or activity of the day. Encourage your other family members to give small gifts: a special note, a flower picked just for him or her.
