Here at Parent Hub Donegal January sees the launch of the 2018 Make One Change campaign inviting families to make some small change to their routine which could make a big difference to their life as a family. For some families it is a choice to make more time for family meals, sitting together round the table. That can make a big difference to family life, taking time to catch up with each other, hearing what is going on, noticing how people are feeling. We also notice our food more when we sit down to eat rather than grabbing food on the run or eating in front of the TV. That means we may eat more healthily and be less likely to overeat—all good reasons to sit down together!
Last year families chose to-
Get out and do more as a family
Go for a walk—healthy, free and a great way to unwind
Improve communication—listen more, make time for conversation
Have a games or movie night
Make time for laughter and fun
Eat more healthily, keeping treats for the weekend.
And lots more!
What is important is that a family thinks about what small change could make a big difference to them—and then commit to making it happen! Forms to sign up for Make One Change 2018 will be available from January through all the primary and secondary schools in the County as well as through Family Resource Centres and Community based projects. The form will also be available on line on our website www.parenthubdonegal.ie
