Top 2011 Resolution: More Time With Family and Friends

If you were asked to predict the top resolutions for the new year, what would you guess? Lose weight? Get in shape? For years, losing weight has been the #1 New Year's resolution. NOT THIS YEAR!

A recent poll showed that more than 50% of Americans vow to appreciate loved ones and spend more time with family and friends in 2011.

All of us here at Enjoy Utah! are thrilled that this is the top resolution for 2011! That is exactly what Enjoy Utah! was created help you find ways to spend more time with family and friends! After all, "time is love".

What can YOU do to create more time with family and friends?
  • Schedule it!
    • Important events like work meetings, parties, concerts, and others, you schedule them onto your calendar to make sure you don't allow anything else to get in the way of that. Your family and friends deserve this same special treatment.
    • Decide on a date and time you are going to spend time with family and friends, and don't let anything get in the way.
    • Make sure the people involved know about your plan, and that they plan accordingly as well.
    • Setting aside a certain day of the week or month helps everybody stay on the same page. If the entire family knows that the first Saturday is family day, or the second Wednesday of the month is lunch with your best friend day, then it's easier for everybody to schedule and plan for it.
  • Make a plan and make it fun!
Make it a resolution this year to spend more time with family and friends, and keep that resolution!
