  • Put away your phones and devices. Technology can easily distract us, and by putting away our phones we can truly get the most out of our time with our family.
  • Try doing different activities with your family. Go to a sporting event, go on a hike, or plan a family game night. The options are endless.
  • Be present. Don’t think about your work. Enjoy your time with your family - it will make all the difference.
