A ritual can be thought of as a routine with meaning - a sequence of actions that we perform and repeat with symbolic meaning. Rituals can have lots of functions, including marking transitions, reducing anxiety, helping to process loss, and facilitating group bonding.
In families, participating in rituals together has been shown to improve marital satisfaction, adolescents' sense of identity, children's health, academic achievement and generally build stronger family relationships. Pretty powerful!
Since you have lots of routines that you have to do on a daily basis anyway, look for a couple of spots to infuse with meaning. You'll likely have specific things your family already does, but some examples are things like:
a loving note or heart that you include in your child's lunch
the special way you say good-bye at school every morning
Monday night mother-daughter pow-wow
the pre-game de-jittering dance
family pizza movie night
To turn moments into rituals instead of buzzing past these moments in a "routine" way:
pause and consider the meaning in your child's life
tune in with your child and focus on connection between you
perhaps express some gratitude for the moment
tell a story about this thing you do together and what it means
