One of the Best Ways to Get Closer to Your Family

We’re so busy we don’t talk much to each other during weekdays. Weekend is the best time for us to be together. We make it a rule not to take our gadgets out (except for me taking pictures, and for my wife to upload the pictures to Facebook so the grandparents can follow our activities). It’s difficult at first, but after we tried hard not to use our gadgets, the conversation started flowing. Sharing stories is good to increase empathy as well. We listen to others’ opinion and share our thoughts. We’re not busy building the world around us, like what we usually do when we use our social media apps. This is one of the best ways to get closer to each other.
