“Communication is key to a healthy relationship. However, it remains one of the more difficult aspects of healthy family interactions,” said Sue Rogers, CEO of Oregon Hot Tub. Even with the ease of modern technology, people are busier than ever before, and most people rush from early morning to well into the night.
Here are 3 ways to improve relationships and family connections that will help strengthen bonds and get everyone talking again.
Gather Together in a Hot Tub – Pay attention to how the family spends their evenings together. Make sure that a fair amount of time is spent interacting with each other. One of the easiest ways is to create a gathering spot that is attractive and fun. A hot tub can provide just that. A small, 2-person hot tub can fit in almost any available area, making it easy to find the perfect one. If space is not an issue, consider a swim spa, or more elaborate small hot tub.
Options for hot tubs include built-in stereos and televisions, lighting systems and even waterfalls. All of these extras are well worth the extra cost, making the area inviting and luxurious. The benefits of the hot tub will reach beyond healthy communication for the family.
Shut Down – Set rules for family time in the evenings. Electronics, while a vital part of most daily activities, should not be allowed when the family is spending time together and talking about what is going on in their lives. Shut off cell phones, turn off televisions, games and other distractions so the focus of all attention is centered around the conversation.
Talk About the Past –Talk about the past, not just current past, so that everyone knows the history of their lives. This can help strengthen identity and instill values into younger family members while reminding adults what is important to them and their loved ones.
