5 Signs that You Are Not Giving Enough Time to Your Family
In this fast paced, competitive world, many of us have become hoarders of material wealth but have lost out on emotional happiness and the small things in life that bring happiness – such as spending time with the family. Here are 5 signs that you are not giving enough time to your family.
1. You don’t know much about the latest happenings with your loved ones
If incidents like your daughter’s SATs, your 10th anniversary, your son’s first prom night, Thanksgiving surprise and grandma’s fall in the house come to you as small surprises every now and then, it’s a clear sign that you are not spending enough time with your family. You should be informed about these things by default, not by co-incidence.
2. You are always on the phone
Are you carrying your smartphone with you even in the loo, in case your boss calls? Are you emailing over your phone, while your husband is talking to you about something important? This spells a clear sign that your professional life has taken over your personal life.
3. Your last vacation was 2 years back
Yes, the recession may have caused many families to cut back on traveling. But if your last vacation was 2 years back, then it’s a clear sign that you are not spending enough time with your family. You desperately need to take time off your hectic work schedule and plan a short trip with your loved ones.
