The last of the wintertime holidays may be over, but that holiday mindset doesn’t have to go anywhere. In today’s blog, we will be sharing a few of our favorite ways to incorporate cheer, relaxation, and quality family time into your everyday (minus the frantic shopping and scheduling that goes along with the holidays!). Take a look.
Schedule family fun into your day
For many busy families, quality time together isn’t just something that will come along—it’s something that needs to be worked toward and planned for (at least when you’re just starting out!). Don’t forget to make time in your day for simple family adventures like dips in the pool, trips to the park, special meals, or visits to your local museum. Even on busy days, a family outing or a favorite movie can help you feel like the holidays never really left.
Try delicious family recipes
If there’s one thing the holidays are known for (besides beautiful decorations and light displays), it’s the abundance of delicious foods and sweets. Who says those treats need to end when the holidays do? While you may not be munching on gingerbread men and holiday fruitcake all year long, you can still make time for perennial treats like chocolate chip cookies, spaghetti nights, and other culinary classics.
Don’t be afraid to take a break
One of the biggest things we look forward to during the holiday season is time off—a large chunk of time for kids still in school, and often at least a few days for us who go to work every day. While it may not be feasible to take this kind of time off throughout the year, it’s still okay to take small “mini” breaks here and there—turning your day around with a delicious lunch out, getting away for a weekend, or simply shifting an average day at home into a staycation where you explore your home city. These small excursions won’t require you to use your vacation days, but they will certainly give you a chance to relax and enjoy some much-deserved relaxation throughout the year.
We hope that these ideas help you accomplish a cheery mindset all year long. Don’t forget to include Peach Valley Cafe in your family festivities in the months ahead—when it comes to brunches, lunches, and everything in between, we know that more really is merrier!
