1. Have a games evening

Friday - - Society -

Of­ten the old-fash­ioned pas­times are the best so choose one evening a week or a month where you sit around the ta­ble and play a board game. If the phone rings, ig­nore it.

2. Let the chil­dren plan a hol­i­day or a weekend away

If your chil­dren are old enough, get them to choose a break for the whole fam­ily and then help them to re­search it. You’ll prob­a­bly end up do­ing some­thing you never con­sid­ered, like horse rid­ing or wind surf­ing or rid­ing as many roller coast­ers as you can in one day!

3. Do a DVD

Put on an ex­er­cise DVD or a dance DVD and all join in. Ex­er­cis­ing to­gether gives you a dou­ble boost of feel-good hor­mones be­cause you’re mov­ing and you’re with peo­ple you love. If you want to go out, swim in the sea or go for a run to­gether, then en­joy a cof­fee and cake af­ter­wards.
