As the old proverb says, ‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’
Or, in the immortal words of Rihanna, “Work, work, work, work, work, work.”
We’re all busy with work, family, and responsibilities. But it’s important to view yourself holistically or “whole-istically” and give other areas of your life attention, too. After all, life isn’t just about work.
Rockland County Pediatric Dentist Dr. Dorit Hermann of Rockland Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics of New City, New York, understands the importance of maintaining a balance between her work and personal interests and passions. Dr. Hermann gets lost in music, books, and belly dancing!
This sense of fun serves her well in her work with children who understand the importance of joy better than anyone else.
Hobbies and Spending Time with Your Kids
A hobby is just a fancy adult way of saying play! Kids play, adults have hobbies. And whatever you choose to call it, having fun is important. Plus, hobbies are a great way to bond with your kids. Include your children in engaging activities and have a great time together.
· Take a pottery or art class
· Volunteer at a pet shelter if your child loves animals.
· Read with your kids
· Turn on some upbeat music and dance together
· Buy a karaoke machine and belt out your favorite tunes
There are so many activities you can share with your child. And you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’re laughing and learning together. In fact, kids learn so fast that you may find yourself working to keep up with them!
Build memories by finding some shared hobbies.
