Keeping family relationships healthy in our workaholic, cash-strapped, time-starved society can be a tough call, but the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. The reality is that family relationships are often compromised by too much focus on work. Work is supposed to be there to serve us, but far too often it seems that we are doing nothing but serve work. If this is the case for you and your family, then you need to begin setting positive habits for your family relationships. Allocate time to honor your commitments to your family, be it making time for your partner, attending your child’s football match on the weekend instead of heading into the office again.
You should also not forget the importance of the family holiday. Family holidays make family memories, and they don’t have to be big and lavish; spending the weekend camping can work just as well in creating times that your kids will remember forever.
