Did you know that studies show if you do something for 21 days it becomes a habit? That is why it is so important to stick with any new positive lifestyle changes for at least three weeks until it becomes part of your normal routine.
During the month of September I am teaming up with an old friend of mine, Erin, from 21 Day Experiment in a challenge to be more aware and invested in bonding with our families. A 21 Day Experiment does not have to be about healthy eating, exercising or stopping a negative habit. With our busy schedules we often get sucked into our daily routines and forget to consciously take a step back and cherish the moment to truly bond with our family.
Over the next month I will be blogging about our progress in this experiment. Erin will be sharing the ways her family is bonding together – from simple bedtime prayers to playdates with her two young boys and husband. I will be sharing ways to bond as a blended family with kids ranging in age from 8 to 17.
I hope you will follow along with us and we both encourage you to join in! Leave comments sharing how you bond with your family and share photos on Instagram by tagging #21DaysFamily so we can interact.
Is it easier for you to bond with each family member individually or everyone bond together as a family?
