An Essential Guide to Family Bonding

Family Bonding is the indispensable ingredient for a productive and rewarding life. A Family is reminiscent of a compass that guides us and is the inspiration to reach great heights and are solace when we occasionally falter. At various facets of our lives, families present us with immense pleasure and at times hardships and pain too. Hence family bonding, spending quality time with our family, help in learning to understand and manage our own emotions and behaviors, to communicate efficiently, and cope with stress effectively. It can help bolster our own emotional health, as well as our connections to the important people in our lives.

At Rakkh, voted as one of the finest resorts in Palampur, we believe inRelax, Rejuvenate, Reconnect. The resort situated on the hilltop in the foothills of Dhauladhar mountains, spreads over an expanse of four and a half acres. The humbly beautiful rooms provide for a traditional ambience and ensure one has the most serene environment to spend time with their family. Rakkh is one of the few resorts in Palampur that afford spectacular views of the snow-covered peaks of Himalayas, the warm villages and flawless valleys. The resort provides a splendid place to relax amongst the placid panorama and rejuvenate oneself and reconnect with their families.

There are essential beneficial influences by spending time together as a family together. An individual’s behavior is characterized by the environment they are exposed to in the early stages of their life. Expected social behavior and reaction to situations in one’s life can be modeled by parents by setting an example early on in their children’s life. This can be achieved by the entire family spending time together and learning to communicate effectively. Rakkh, an experiential Resort in Palampur, perched on top of a hill is specially designed to cater to these needs by creating a global environment with activities which serve the purpose of families coming together and spending quality time. A simple activity of preparing Maggi together at the Maggi station at Rakkh Resort is a fun family bonding experience. The mother guides the father and the young ones, and the father and children team together concoct an entirely new delicacy- they even name the dish after their family name and all’s well that ends well!

Building a channel to maintain reciprocal communication is exceedingly essential. Individuals in the absence of formidable emotional grounding can be effortlessly influenced by their peers and can be swayed by unruly behavior and advances that don’t necessarily have the best interest at heart. Family bonding opens channels of communication where they can impart wisdom to their rapidly developing adolescents, help them reform into active listeners and amicable, humble social beings. Birding is the perfect family activity that makes listeners of adolescent children. Rendezvousing with nature is always a humbling experience. Take a walk together into the mountain forests with our expert birding guides and you never have to venture too far to get some shiny feathers in front of your binoculars!

Family bonding also involves displaying a keen interest in your spouse, rekindling the ever-growing love towards one another and making your significant other feel comfortable to converse and seek advice about personal and professional hindrances in their lives. Actively emphasizing family bonds creates mutual respect towards one another. With developed mutual respect it is easier to diffuse aggressive or nervous verbal confrontations and have healthy and fruitful discussions. To help engage in productive and transformative experiences, we at Rakkh Resort in Palampur have devised activities focused around couples and families with young parents such as pottery workshops, mountain biking, in-house spa, the tea experience, village hikes, evening bonfires, yoga, paragliding, slacklining, various children’s activities and cultural immersions!

Taking up a creative activity and a physical task together as a family helps improve family bonds and assembles a team building spirit and a sense of belonging. Designating time together will help eliminate unpleasant ways of dealing with stress. Family bonding helps value one another and this way, they are more likely to have a strong, energetic long-lasting relationship.
