What does every family want most in life; a happy home. No matter what they think they want most in life, a happy home is the root of all desire. Some people think they want more money, and that’s because they think it will make them happy. Others want to meet someone wonderful to marry and start a family with, because they want to be happy. However, if you really want to have a happy home and a happy family, you need to start with a few basic rules.
You cannot have a happy home if there is no respect in your home. This means that everyone is required to show and earn respect for one another. If you don’t respect your husband because he’s lazy and doesn’t help with the kids, you’re never going to be happy. If he doesn’t respect your way of dealing with the household, you’re never going to be happy. If your kids see that there’s no respect in your house, they’ll not have any and no one will be happy.
The best way to make sure your house is a happy one is to show affection. Hugging, kissing, cuddling and being close to the people you love most makes you happy. It releases feel-good endorphins that cause you to feel less stress and more happiness. Make sure you tell your kids you love them, hug them for no reason and kiss your husband when he walks in the door, no matter how busy you at the moment.
No one is happy without a little silly in their lives. Be spontaneous. Be funny. Tell jokes, laugh, read together and play silly games. The more you laugh as a family, the happier you’ll feel when you’re with one another. Make it a point to laugh together to ensure that your home is a happy one. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
