Nothing beats a family dinner. There’s something special about gathering around the table to share a meal with the people you love. Eating dinner at the table may feel like a lost art, but the following blog post contains three reasons why you and your family should eat your meals around a table.
In today’s modern era, we’re more likely to eat a meal in front of the computer or T.V., or on our way to school or work. Sitting down and eating a meal at the table has gotten lost in the shuffle of our busy and media-filled lives. Even if you feel like you and your family are too busy to plan a meal at the table, this isn’t the case. Take the time to eat together at the table at least once a week for the following three reasons:
1. Slowing down.
Our lives can easily feel busy, rushed, and hectic. Gather around the table and allow time to slow down. Relax, unwind, and take the time out of your busy day to spend time with the people you love. You and your family can enjoy breakfast together, just by waking up 30 minutes earlier. You can also set aside time for dinner by staying up just 30 minutes later. This little amount of time can make a huge difference.
2. Being present.
With social media, T.V., and the internet, it’s easy to feel like you aren’t present. Put the phone down and take a step away from the T.V. to connect with the people you love. Eating a meal with family and friends and ignoring your phones can allow you to create real, genuine connections.
3. Connecting with others.
Like previously mentioned, eating together at the table can allow you to connect with others. Whether you’re cooking a meal yourself or ordering from your favorite restaurant, you and your family can bond over the prepared meal. You can also talk about your day, catch up, and listen to what one another has to say.
