Increase Your Family’s Happiness and Health


Being a parent is such a joy, but can also make you a ball full of anxiety too. Are you doing enough for the kids? Are they happy? Are they safe? Are they healthy? There is a lot to think about when you’re raising children. But as Tolstoy has said, happy families are all alike.


Well, that is that they are all doing similar things to create a feeling of happiness in their home, and they have that as a foundation for everything else. So if you want to create a similar foundation in your home, then here are some things that you can be doing to make sure that the environment is a safe, healthy, and happy one (and you never know, it may help you to curb your anxiety a little).



Cuddle Time

One thing for children is for sure; you can’t spoil them with love or ‘too many’ cuddles. This kind of secure love and physical touch can give such a feeling of reassurance of children. But let’s face it, it can be fun too! Reading together, playing games, or just chatting together on a lazy morning in bed can be fun for all.

Make Time For Fun

Our children getting an education, as well as doing chores to make sure that they are doing their fair share around the house is all well and good. And it teaches them important things like discipline, hard work, and cause and effect. But making sure that there is time for fun is so important too. It can help stress levels as well as their anxiety levels if they have time to just be themselves with no pressure. Play games, go for walks, or things like cooking or baking together can be lots of fun.

Eat Well

We all love to have treats. And our kids love to have treats too. But too much, and being too lenient with them can have an impact on their overall health. When health is impacted, then it can have a knock on impact with mental health as well, and a general feeling of lethargy. So to have the happiest children, we need to offer the balance and make sure that they are eating a good diet. Another side effect if that you may you may find that you’re needing to use your health insurance more and looking for CHIP providers near to you. And too much illness or sickness isn’t going to help a happy home and happy children.

Go For Routines

Some people can be quite against routines. But research has shown that children really thrive with a regular routine. Deviation from time to time is fine, but they feel secure when they know what is going on and when especially if you have children on the autism spectrum. It can also help you to have more peace of mind on things like school mornings as everyone knows what they should be doing and what is expected of them, which does also give them a feeling of responsibility.
