A happy home...

With Mother's Day just a few days past, I have been pondering an article I read regarding how women set the tone in their homes and specific things they can do to make those who live there, as well as those just visiting, feel loved and accepted assuring happiness to all involved.  

We all know that eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep will lead to feeling well and should increase our chance for feeling happy.  But did you know that happy people have stronger relationships, and are more generous with both time and money, all leading to more happiness?  A happy person tends to be more forgiving, more helpful and has tons more self-control, all leading to more happiness!  Happy people know how to have fun and be silly...all leading to more, you guessed it, happiness!!

So, the specific suggestions for a happy home are the following:
  • Hug and kiss hubby and kids everyday and tell them you love them
  • Give hubby and kids a real hello when they come in
  • and a real goodbye when they leave

I like the "hello" and "goodbye" suggestions ... stop what you are doing and greet them letting them know they are the most important thing happening at that moment.  It seems like a no-brainer, but how often do we stop and meet someone at the door when they are coming or going?  Something to think about.
