As we close this month of vision setting and plans for the new year, one area we should remember to focus on is Family. Casting a vision for your family is a great way to teach kids goal setting and to work together as a unit to achieve a common goal. Visions can include Healthier lifestyles, which can equal activities of weekly family bike rides and cooking healthy meals together. Design a vision with your family to make a impact on the local community. This year HAULYP is offering family friendly service projects to help get the whole family involved in the movement. Look for the family icon on event flyers for activities that are open to all ages.
Family Vision Tips
Include The Whole Family
All members in the family should participate in the Family vision. If you have young kids, ask them about their personal goals. This a great way to understand and support the aspirations of your kids.
Don’t Over Do It
Keep your visions and goals limited to one or two at the most. This will help the family stay focused on completing them.
Always set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
Family Vision Crafts
Order in dinner, and create a fun night of Family Vision Crafts. Work as a family to create a Vision board to place in a common household area. Design dream pillows with young kids, the concept is to have them draw their dreams or goals on a pillowcase and then lay their head on them every night.
Make sure to schedule family time quarterly to review your vision and make any updates or revisions.
