So, I was sitting in on a webinar titled The Happy Healthy Kitchen: Creating Delicious Meals to Support Dietary Advice. Lots of good information, but what stuck out was a small side note that the speaker glazed over about Millennials and “the table.” She didn’t quote where she got her info from, but she said that more Millennials don’t own a table (I’m assuming she is referring to the dinner table).
I don’t know how factual her statement is, but I can believe it and that is a little depressing. I’ve mentioned how people are moving away from conversation and socializing because of the cell phone and now that the dinner table is gone, families and friends won’t even gather or be in the same room anymore. It was a time of day that we could count on to catch up on news and anything else that was going on with our loved ones.
In my situation, it’s usually just me and my little brother, but we sit at the dinner table and guess what…we talk and I find out what’s been going on with him and I let off some steam with whatever stressed me out at work.
The dinner table. It can improve mind, body and spirit. Get one…or make use of the one you already got 😉
