A harmonious home is a happy home but how do you create that in your own family abode?
Our family home is an extension of who we are so it’s no surprise that we want it to be a tranquil oasis where we make memories and relax after a hard day at work. Our home can shape the mood and productivity of every family member so if you can perfect the mood, you’re onto a winner.
It’s incredible how a few small changes to our home can have a massive impact on the mood within your home.
Think Positive Thoughts in the Morning
When you wake up in the morning, think positive thoughts, read inspirational quotes or set yourself goals for the day. This will instantly set your mood for the day and inspire you to get up and get on with the day ahead of you.
Make Your Bed
Making your bed is a three-minute task which will instantly boost your mood. Research has suggested that making your bed every day is linked to improved productivity and stronger skills at sticking with a budget. It further leads to a boost in happiness.
Clean up After Yourself
After eating, after getting ready or after getting up in the morning, cleaning up after yourself can boost your mood. No one likes to walk into a messy kitchen or room, and as much as you will resent tidying up before you head out or before you go to bed, you will be happy once it’s done. This will make for a more relaxed happy home.
Keeping an eye on the volume of your home I find is really important to keeping the mood a good one. No one likes shouting and screaming, unless necessary, so keeping a harmonious level in your home can help to boost the mood and keep everyone happy.
Spend Time Without Technology
Whether it’s at family breakfast time, dinner or whilst you’re playing a board game, dedicating a certain amount of time to not being on your phones, social media, checking emails or watching TV is super beneficial. Enjoy each other’s company, talk about your day and really spend some quality time together can help to make your home a happy one.
Display Sentimental Belongings
Being reminded of happy times is a huge factor in boosting our mood and making us feel happy. From fond family photos of awards or keepsakes, displaying them around your home will boost your mood without you even knowing about it.
Go Out of Your Way for Others
From giving someone an unexpected compliment to taking them a cup of tea in the morning, the smallest of gestures can make for a happy home. Go out of your way for others and expect nothing in return and you’ll soon see that the favours are returned and everyone is living in a happy, harmonious home.
