Life, particularly here in the Middle East is busy. Between school and nursery drop-offs, work commitments, getting stuck in traffic there never seems like there is enough time in the day. And sometimes along the hassle, you might forget about bonding with your family. And no one wants that.
Spending time with your family is essential. And you should always focuse on quality. There is a huge difference between sitting together in the same room, often on devices not engaging with each other compared to spending a shorter amount of time sitting and chatting with your family. Just 10 -15 minutes of quality time can be beneficial in building a stronger bond with your children.
Creating a space that encourages these moments will help your whole family to bond and enjoy each other’s company. This space could be a corner in your family room. Or with the weather cooling down in the coming months it is an ideal time to make the most of your outdoor space. By creating comfortable areas where you and your family can relax and connect.
Bonding with your Family: An indoor space.
An indoor corner made just for family bonding is a great addition to every home. This area can be whatever you or your family want it to be. It can be a floor seating, an arts and crafts table, or a place to do a big puzzle. What is awesome about this indoor space is that it’s there for you all year round. Especially if it’s too hot or too cold to go outside.
Bonding with your family outdoors
On the other hand, nothing beats a day spent in your backyard or balcony. You can cook out, play a round of Uno or Jenga and have a blast. But to make sure your outdoor bonding space is perfect, you need the right outdoor furniture.
