25 Ways to Get Connected, Calm and Active this Holiday Season

Did you know that across all cultures, there’s one common thing that enhances the quality of life? Can you guess what that is? It’s having connected relationships. So this holiday season, remember that while taking the time to be kind to yourself and nurture yourself, also enjoy the time with your family. We know from the literature that children ages 8 to 18 can spend up to eight hours per day on their screens, and I hope that you feel inspired this holiday season to encourage them participate in fun activities (like some of the 25 listed below) together. Go outside, have a picnic in your driveway, go ice skating, maybe even a snowball fight. Build a snowman, play with blocks, or build a fort in your living room. So during this holiday season be purposeful and take the time to be close, calm, and connected to your family.
