Celebrate Family Day
Did you know there is a day of the year dedicated to spending quality time with your family? The United Nations proclaimed May 15 as the International Family Day to highlight the importance of families as basic units of society. Especially now during a pandemic time when we are forced to stay at home this day is intended to remind us of the values of love, loyalty, happiness, and togetherness. Here’s a list of 4 things you can do to show your family you care about them:
Cook a homemade meal
Nothing brings people together like good food! What’s your husband’s favorite dish? Or your wife’s favorite dessert? If you want to show your loved ones how much you care about them, you can prepare their favorite meal. Studies show that cooking for others brings positive psychological benefits, why? Doing something nice for another human being, like cooking for them, is a form of altruism. And altruism can make people feel happy and connected to others. So, next time you want to bond with your family, think about delicious recipes you can surprise them with!
Leave little messages
If you don’t like cooking you can also opt for leaving little messages to different members of your family including your kids, your parents and siblings. You can put a cute note with a nice message such as “have a good day today” or “I miss you when you aren’t here” in places that they can find when you’re not there. You can leave it in the nightstand, the refrigerator door, the lunchbox or simply send it as an email
Have fun together
Spending time with your wife, husband or kids is another great way to show them how much you love them! Plan fun activities at home or outdoors if you are lucky to have garden or big terrace, a board games evening, dance like crazy or simply laugh together. Remember, life is too short, so we have to give priority to the little moments in life that make us the happiest with our close ones.
Care about their health
One thing you could do to care about the health of your family at home is to provide them with fresh, healthy water! Some families tend to drink water straight from the tap and truth is, tap water can be contaminated with harmful chemicals such as chlorine. To solve this problem we suggest you install water filters at home to have peace of mind that your family and you will always have clean, great-tasting and healthy water to drink. What’s great about filters is not only the fact that they help you save money and contribute to the environment by not buying plastic bottles, but they are also easy to install and available in different sizes.
Here at Aquasana, we offer 4 types of water filters for consumption:
- The over-the-counter filter: Suitable option for families or homeowners that tend to move frequently from house to house. This filter is a great alternative to bottled or tap water because it’s super easy to install and it isn’t expensive.
- The under-the-counter filter: Great for families or homeowners that don’t move often. What’s great about this filter is that you install it under your counter and nobody sees it in the kitchen. Now we have 2 sizes available.
- The Clean Water Machine Dispenser great filter at a great price. The best option if water pressure is problematic and if you don’t want any fixture or installation.
- Reusable bottles with filter: These are perfect for anyone in the family, especially for the little ones to ensure they drink clean water wherever they are.
Keep in mind, you don’t need a special day to show your family members how much you care about them! Be spontaneous and make little moments count. The more love you give them, the happier and appreciated they will feel.
