Spending some time with your family can really lift your mood and make you feel so much better than you do. In this competitive world and our busy schedules, we happen to forget the importance of spending time with our family. Family bonding isn’t and shouldn’t be a formality, it should rather be a time of giggles, jokes and expressing our weirdest behavior.

Something as simple as eating your dinner together every day will enhance not only your relationship with your family, but also your intrapersonal relationship. For me personally, playing some light music and enjoying a simple dinner with my family is therapeutic. Its even better when everyone contributes something to the meal. Be it something as simple as getting a can of Coke from the nearby shop, or cooking your favourite dish for your family, it has its own pleasure.

When everyone sits together on the dinner table and share their daily experiences, not only are the conversations interesting, but they are also memorable. Years later, you may not remember estranged friends, but you will certainly remember the daily dinner table conversations.

These family meals are even better if you create a good atmosphere. Having a candlelight dinner, or having dinner with your grandparents with 1970s Hindi music on would be a different experience for you. You will learn and absorb so much from such experiences, that it will give you a new perspective of how you look at togetherness.

Usually, we have music, movie or relationship talks with our friends. Why not have those with your family? Well in my family, we talk about everything from boyfriends to LGBTQ to hot celebrities. If you open up to your family, they will open up to you. They will be your best friends, and you’ll stop cribbing about how your friends ditched you and went with some other guys for your favourite Marvel movie.

So, start the daily family talk! Start the daily dinner togetherness experience with your family!
