Enjoying the backyard on warm summer night with friends and family is probably one of the most gratifying feelings of a long work week coming to an end. Seeing the warm glow on everyone’s face as the flickering lights of candles, tiki torches, and a fire pit replace the suns light as it disappears over the horizon and the relaxing time has begun.

 The saying goes “Work Hard and Play Hard” well there is a time to relax hard also. No one can take for granted that time stands still for no one and that is more especially true the older we get. When you are young and healthy time is just a word that more mature people use to stress the importance of getting things done. When your young, you feel like you have all the time in the world. When you age, you realize time does not lay idle waiting for you to catch up to it. So, we must make every effort to live each day as if another day will not come.

Spending time with family and friends makes us feel refreshed and connected to each other. Telling stories and catching up from the prior week’s events makes us feel passionate about each other’s feelings and provides us with a form of communication that is getting lost in this digital age, “The spoken word”.

Many times, certain phraseology, and the inflection in someone’s tone is completely lost in a text or email. When asked “Hey, what did you mean when you said this?” it is replied with “I didn’t mean it to sound like that”.

Years ago, sitting around together and speaking to others was the only way to communicate an idea to everyone. It gives the receiver of the information the opportunity to give instant feedback on the topic. We called this talking to one another. Seems silly to have it described this way but for a lot of younger people today most of the communication they are receiving today does not work this way. They are communicating electronically with pictures or hyphenated sentences. One on one communication is getting lost in time.

Communicating with someone in the backyard across from a table or chair gives you a sense that you were in the moment with the other person as its being described to you. So many of our communication techniques as human beings involve using gestures with our hands and the movement of our lips, eyebrows, and facial expressions. Certain levels or volumes of our voices can put an importance on certain words. All of this cannot be communicated electronically.

For these reasons we should value all time spent with each other in person. Let us not forget how to have one-on-one talks. Find out what your kids are up to and ask them who their friends are. We all must take an active approach in talking to each other in person. That’s why backyard time is important. It gets us out of the house and outside with the fresh air.

Looking to start conversations in the backyard with family or friends? First let’s start with making some fresh tasting dry dip mixes from www.dipdelivered.com. Making these dips is a great way to grease the mouths of young ones who are too preoccupied eating to notice you when you are asking them questions.

Next try these helpful conversation starters.

  3. What are you going to do this weekend?
