Simply Inspired week 5 with Logo

WELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  For the next few weeks I will be sharing (1) simple tip to help inspire you to lead a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.

Tip #5 – Gather Around The Table

There is something about gathering around the table and sharing a meal together that really connects our family.  It’s one of our favorite times of the day (and usually the loudest).  The meal is not grand but really boarders on the simple side.  When you have a family of six, simple is good.  To help facilitate conversation (because, let’s be honest, with 5 women in the house and one guy there is a lot to say) we play the “high – low” game.  Each person takes a turn to share their high point of the day and their low point of the day.  It’s a simple exercise but one that helps our family stay in tune with one another.

So today’s simple tip and challenge is to sit down for a family meal – whatever family looks like for you.  Take time to listen, to speak and to just spend some un-hurried time together.

Does your family sit down for meals?  How do you create margin for the things that matter to you?
