Health is instrumental to the enjoyment of a long and happy life; living a healthy life can be simple if you stick to a few basic guidelines. Health family life can usually be obtained by eating a healthy and balanced diet, ensuring good personal hygiene, doing regular exercise and spending quality time together.
Spending time together
It can be difficult to enjoy quality time together if everybody is busy doing different activities but you should try to schedule some family time each week; this may be as simple as eating dinner together or spending the evening together playing games, doing a sporting activity or watching television, for example. Spending time together helps to form stronger relationships. Research suggests that those who regularly spend time with their family are less likely to suffer from stress and anxiety and more likely to achieve success in their school, social and working lives.
Nowadays, it is common for parents to be separated and children to spend time with both parents at set times of the week. If you are struggling to come to a suitable arrangement try to discuss the problems between yourselves away from the children; children who regularly hear their parents arguing are more likely to blame themselves for a break-up and are prone to suffering from a lack of self-esteem. If you cannot reach a compromise, it may be necessary to seek mediation or legal services.
