Statistically the majority of families have a holiday in August and interestingly families with young children take the most holidays per year – an average of 4 holidays (2 abroad and 2 in the UK).
Downtime is so important to recharge the batteries and reconnect with relationships. It sounds silly doesn’t it? Reconnecting with your family. I’ve actively notice in our house that on holiday when the daily cadence of life stops (commuting, dinner planning, kids activities, domestic duties… the list goes on) we pause and reflect on what’s important to us…
Often when we return from holiday friends and family are interested to know what we did, where we explored and what did we eat! All great things to talk about however often it’s the harmony we bring back with us into the home is what I value the most.
It’s our “holiday harmony” and keeping us balanced.
