5 ways to spend more quality time with your children even when you have no time Let’s face it, life is busy! In the midst of juggling work and life responsibilities, the days pass us by in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, your little one is not-so-little anymore it hits you that they are growing up too fast and you start to feel guilty about not spending enough time with them. To make things worse, social media posts from stay-at-home parents who are able to take their children to the local zoo or work only add to this anxiety. Here are 5 ideas on how you can optimize the time you spend with your kids! 1. Make and eat meals with your children whenever possible. If time is limited, look for simple meals that require very little preparation, or grab a healthy snack such as an apple and sit for a few minutes and chat with your child. 2. Schedule time for doing an activity of your child’s choosing. Be sure to follow through and complete the activity without any distractions. 3. Turn off technology when you spend time with your child. Try not to text, answer calls, scroll through social media, or watch television. 4. Exercise together! Although your kids may not get this message, working out together is the ULTIMATE quality time to spend together. Think about it…exercising regularly adds years to your life…that’s YEARS more that you can spend together! And you get the bonus of those little snippets of bonding time during those daily workouts. 5. Don't Drive Everywhere The minutes that we "save" by driving our children a short distance to the neighbourhood park or a friend's house are actually priceless moments that we lose in the name of convenience. The next time you need to take your children somewhere nearby, try to get there on foot. Walking with your kids is a great way to slow down the pace of your lives and to have more unscripted moments with them. And if all else fails, well.. You could just take a trip down to The Polliwogs and have some SERIOUS FUN! In fact, parents get to enter the play area for FREE so you never miss out on another magical moment.
