During the winter season, it's easy to get restless and bored when you are cooped up in your house all day. Escaping the weather and heading to the gym to fit in some exercise is one way to break up the winter blues, but how else can you stay motivated when it's too cold to go outside and enjoy your free time? One activity that is both fun and beneficial to your whole family is volunteering!
For over 20 years, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service has encouraged individuals to volunteer their time to improve their communities. As we look ahead to 2017, that spirit of community service can be as a rallying point to heal our differences through a common cause as giving back and strengthening the places where we live, work and play is something we all can agree on.
There is a reason why the holiday season is a favorite time for many. Kids get off school for a few weeks to enjoy the cooler weather (and maybe a little bit of snow); families get to come together to celebrate the special time of year, along with some delicious holiday feasts; and more than ever, it is one time during the year that we truly get to sit down, relax and get in some quality time with our own family.
