Here are 4 quick proven steps that will definitely help you achieve your dreams and also enjoy your time with your family.
- Wake up early
When you wake up early, even if every other member of your family is busy sleeping you will have more time for yourself. More time for yourself actually means more time for your family. You will have double benefits as you will spend your distraction-free mornings and you will also be able to complete your daily routines without any hindrance or disturbance. Then give your family a chance to charm you.
- Learn to ignore things you don't like your family members
Generally, we are not able to spend time with people we love because we can't ignore their behaviors, expressions, talks and sometimes their attitudes. We constantly find a way to ignore them even when we know we want to spend time with them. Ignoring things, you don't like them will simply make space for spending more time with them. Also, you are happy to accept who they are and just love them for being your loved ones. This does not mean that you ignore them when they seek your help and advice.
- Walk away from things you don't like
If there is something you don't enjoy doing, say, attending dance classes that you aren't really interested in anymore, leave them. Start making space for other enjoyment instead. A simple step like walking away from things you don't like and move toward things you do like can shift your energy and help you spend more time with people you can enjoy life with.
- Be happy, smile a lot, let the law of attraction work for you
How can a smile help with spending more time with family? With a smile, you get work done faster. Stay happy. Make others happy. Law of Attraction says that when you focus on a subject long enough, it will bring you more of that same stuff. Concentrate on happiness, laughing, smiling, enjoying and it will bring back to you lots of stuff that's much similar. And if your family is one of that, you'll attract it without question.
