A productive family is a happy family. When everyone is working at their goals and keeping one another accountable, things run smoothly. This year is a year of change and new beginnings for a lot of people. Productivity means accomplishing what you set out to accomplish. Learning how to be productive with kids in the house isn’t about finding ways to avoid spending time with them, it’s about spending your time on the right things.
What are some of your family goals?
A few ways to raise your family productivity go as such:
1. Eat Meals Together
It is such an important part of a family dynamic to have at least one meal together, most likely dinner. By eating a meal together as a family that is at home or at a restaurant, each member is able to speak about their day’s successes and/or challenges.
2. Play Games Together
Another great way to keep the excitement in your family is organizing family game nights. One member of the family picks a game for each game night. Healthy competition is a perfect way to keep the minds busy, laughter all around and productivity high.
3. Read Often
Believe it or not, there are children’s books on productivity. How great would it be if your children already knew how to manage their time and maximize their productivity before they entered the “real world”? By reading books and being an example for one another, the shift of energy within your household will feel empowering.
*Bonus Tip* Define 3 outcomes you want to get out of the week.
This type of goal setting allows you to create concrete targets to hit and focus on. Those outcomes could be as small as hanging up those picture frames you’ve had sitting in the closet for months to acing your project in World History.
Be the movement in your family by keeping one another accountable and proactive to achieving the family life you all deserve.
