Print out and cut up the SP monthly calendar. Put into a small box on the table and use for your dinner conversation game. Draw a "card" and start the conversation going around the table. (These games sell for a price and yours is free and healthy.)
Whenever someone calls me on the phone, instead of sitting and talking, I walk around my apartment while I'm talking.
