May 18 is always the day dedicated to vising your relatives each year. It’s intended to help build and strengthen family relationships. Of course, it’s easier to find time to visit relatives when May 18 falls on a weekend instead of in the middle of the week. Even in the middle of the week, there are lots of ways to reach out to those who are important to you.
If your life is too busy during the week to get stay in touch with relatives, try these options:
•Call them. So many of us have forgotten how important it is to connect via phone.
•Send a text or email.
•Snail mail works. Jot a short note or send a card.
•Get together for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
•Reach out with a social media message or post.
If you have sick relatives, give them a little meaningful gift. Readers love books. Candy or foods may be a welcome gift for people who don’t have diet restrictions. Patient Scrubs® are helpful for people in rehab, medical treatments or have problems dressing.
It’s easy to get out of touch with loved ones in today’s hectic society. Make today the day to get back in touch. Five minutes can bring joy in your loved one’s life. Plus, research shows that reaching out to others has a calming effect on you too.
The Patient Scrubs® lady wishes you and your family a wonderful Visit Your Relatives Day!
