Enjoy Your Family this Labor Day Weekend

happy-labor-dayLabor Day celebrates the contributions and achievements of American workers, and for families, marks the last weekend of the summer or an early long weekend in the new school year.  The long weekend away from your paid labor gives you time to relax and enjoy your family.

Unfortunately, modern society makes it challenging to eliminate distractions and give your family your full attention.  Here are some ideas to try this Labor Day weekend.

 

7  Tips to Help You Enjoy Your Family This Labor Day

  1. Have a no news weekend.  Eliminate the outside stress and bring your focus inside on your family.
  2. Take a break from your mobile – at a minimum mute your ringer and stop notifications of alerts (emails, news feeds, Facebook posts, Tweets, etc.) – if you can handle it, power the phone off for a day or the even the weekend.
  3. Leave your mail in the mailbox.  Your bills and junk mail will still be there on Tuesday.
  4. Put the out-of-office notice on your work email and then don’t look at it again until Tuesday.  Do this even if your office is your kitchen table.
  5. Do not read or answer your personal email. Your friends will understand that family had your attention.
  6. If you still have one, turn the ringer off on your land line phone and mute the answering machine.
  7. Have a list of family activities ready so all you and your family need to do is pick what to do.  Here are 100 Ideas to get you started.

Happy Labor Day!
