10 Ways To Make Your Home The Happiest Place On Earth

Whether you’re in a relationship or single, at home or out with friends, I think we can all agree that the happiest place on Earth is where you feel at home. When you think about it, your home is one of the most important places in your life. It’s where you come back to after a long day; it’s where your family and friends gather together; it’s even where some of us spend most of our time! So if we want our homes to be the happiest place on Earth, why don’t we try making them that way? Here’s how:

Focus on What You Can Control

It’s easy to get caught up in the mess of the world, but it’s also important to focus on what you can control. One way to do this is by focusing on what makes your home a happy place and replacing any negative feelings with positive ones.

One example of this would be if you’re having a bad day at work and come home to an empty house—instead of dwelling on how annoying it was that no one bothered calling or texting, take this time as an opportunity for self-care: cook dinner for yourself and unwind by curling up with a book or watching Netflix (or both). If there’s something that makes you happy when you’re feeling down, try doing it! You’ll feel better immediately.

If your partner is unhappy about something that happened during their day, try talking them through their emotions rather than letting them stew in silence—and vice versa when they need some extra love from you!

Create a Cozy Retreat

Creating a cozy retreat is one of the most important things you can do to create a happy home. Have you ever walked into someone’s house and immediately felt at ease? Maybe it was because they had a beautiful foyer with soft lighting, or perhaps their living room was set up in such a way that you could sit and enjoy the sound of rain outside their window. Whatever it was, their home made them feel relaxed and at peace.

Now imagine if your own home had those same qualities—how great would that be? No matter what happened during the day, when you came back to your personal retreat, it would be like coming home. This is an important part of creating happiness in any environment; having somewhere where we can totally relax and let go for as long as we need (without worrying about being interrupted).

Say “Thank you”

It can be so easy to take for granted the things we have in our lives, whether it’s our family, friends, jobs, or even just the fact that we have a roof over our heads. So make sure you are always saying thank you when someone does something good for you or helps out with something. It will make them feel good to know that they made a difference in your day and it will help instill gratitude into your own life as well!

Try paying forward the kindnesses that others have done for you by doing kind acts of your own towards others who may not have been as fortunate as yourself in life (this could include paying off someone’s lunch bill at school/work). This will help build self-esteem among those around us while also spreading positivity which helps create happier environments overall – so come on guys let’s do this together!!

Choose Soft Colors

If you’re looking for a quick way to make your home more inviting and welcoming, consider soft colors. These include light blues, greens, and yellows. Soft colors tend to be relaxing so they can help you unwind after a long day at work or school. They also provide a soothing backdrop that can help you relax when it’s time for bed. While there are many shades of blue that would fit in this category (including navy blue), green is probably the most common choice for walls because it has an inherent calming effect on people who view it. Yellow is another color that can be used as an accent wall in combination with either green or blue – its brightness helps brighten up any room while providing a sharp contrast against the other two primary colors.

Live in the Moment

Living in the moment is one of the simplest ways to make your home a happier place. When we’re living in the moment, we are more engaged and present with what’s happening around us. We feel more grateful for what we already have and can be happy with less.

Living in the moment isn’t always easy but it is possible if you start practicing mindfulness meditation or gratitude journaling every day!

Create an Oasis to Relax in

Creating a space to relax and recharge is an important part of staying happy.

Try creating a little spot where you can escape when life gets overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy—just somewhere that feels comfortable with some sort of calming aesthetic.

If you don’t have much free time, then this is especially important! Think about the activities that help you relax and make sure they’re available in your home whenever you need them (e.g., books or music).

This doesn’t mean having a room dedicated solely for relaxation; it could just be a chair or couch in your living room that’s designated “The Relaxation Station.”

Cook and Eat Together

Cooking and eating together is one of the best ways to bond with your family. As you all prepare meals together, you’ll get to know each other better and develop traditions that will last a lifetime. Cooking also teaches children important life skills, like how to measure ingredients and follow recipes, so they can make healthy meals for themselves later in life.

Help Each Other Out

If you want to take your relationship to the next level, consider helping each other out around the house. Here are some things that you can do:

  • Cook dinner together. If you’re both in the mood for something different, try switching off who makes dinner each night and share it with your significant other at the table. It’s a great way to spend quality time together and also saves money on takeout!
  • Clean up after yourselves. If you’re used to leaving messes wherever you go and don’t have someone else who cleans up after you then this might be an easy change for you. The act of picking up after yourself is one thing but having another person there who expects it from their partner sets a good example that will benefit both of them in many aspects of life outside just cleaning up after meals or doing laundry together can lead to what could become a very satisfying relationship between two people living under one roof–so long as they keep trying new things together until then too!

Find the Humor in Life

It’s easy to overlook the humor in life, especially when we’re busy and stressed out. But that’s no way to live! Look for the funny side of things, and don’t take anything too seriously. Look for the little things that make you laugh, like a funny email or joke shared with your friends, or even just something silly that your dog did this morning. And don’t forget to appreciate people who make you laugh—your significant other, coworkers, or friends—because laughter is contagious! You can also find humor by looking at situations from different perspectives; if something bad happens, try thinking about how it could be worse (for example: “I got into an accident this morning but it turned out fine”).

Have a Dream Goal to Keep You Going

Dream big, but don’t forget to dream small. It’s great to have dreams that involve the whole world, but it’s also important to make a dream for your home, even if it’s just for one room. Having a clear goal or direction can keep you going when things get tough and help you stay motivated when you need inspiration. For example, maybe your dream is to restore an old piece of furniture so that all your friends and family can sit around it during holidays and family gatherings. Or maybe your dream is to turn an unused basement into a fully functioning game room where everyone in the house can get together every weekend for games and fun!

Focusing on what makes you happy is something we can all strive for.

This is a very important step. Focusing on what makes you happy is something we can all strive for. It’s also an opportunity to reinvent yourself and your life.

If you are feeling down or depressed, it might be time to reevaluate what really matters in your life. You may have been focusing on the wrong things, which could be causing the problem or exacerbating it.

Remember that what makes us happy changes over time and with experience, so don’t think of this as a one-time fix but rather as a continuous process that will change as we grow older and wiser in our lives together with those around us!


Focusing on what makes you happy is something we can all strive for. Even though we may not be able to control everything in our lives, we can make sure that we’re taking care of ourselves physically and mentally by focusing on things like exercise and sleep. And if some days are harder than others, remember that it’s okay! Just keep yourself moving forward and try your best to stay positive throughout the rough patches—because no matter how tough things get out there in the world, there will always be moments when life feels good again

10 Relaxing Weekend Ideas For Families

I love the weekends. I love being able to sleep in, take my time getting ready and eat a leisurely breakfast. But sometimes, on the weekends that are supposed to be relaxing and fun, I feel like I’m living in a zoo. My kids want to go out at every single moment of the day, and even though I want them there sometimes too (and we do go), it’s nice to enjoy some quiet time at home instead of always being on the move. Here are some ideas for how you can have fun at home or outdoors on weekends when you don’t have any plans:


A staycation is a vacation that you stay at home. You can still enjoy a mini-vacation by taking your kids to the beach, zoo, or amusement park in your area, then spending the night at home. In this way, you save money and have a relaxing time together as a family.

You can also learn new skills such as cooking or baking together by using recipes from Pinterest or YouTube videos. You could even make homemade gifts for loved ones during your staycation!

Cooking Night

Cooking together is a great way to bond with your kids. For example, you could try making a new recipe or using an ingredient that you have never used before. You can also make healthy and nutritious meals for your family. Cooking together can be fun and easy as well!

If you’re looking for a new recipe, try this easy vegetarian chili recipe from Skinnytaste! It’s made with black beans, kidney beans, and carrots in addition to ground beef so it has lots of protein while being lower in fat than most other chilis. It’s also super customizable: throw some cilantro on top or add some cheese if you want! If cooking isn’t really something that interests you but eating what comes out of the oven sure does–then give this recipe a shot! It makes enough servings so everyone gets their fill without wasting any food; just double up on how much meat goes into each bowl if needed (and don’t forget about leftovers).

Spa Night

Spa night is a great way to relax and unwind. It also can be a fun activity for the whole family and a great way to bond with your children. Spa night can be done at home or in a spa, which makes it even more convenient.

Spa nights are especially helpful if you find yourself feeling stressed out from work or everyday life. Spending time away from all that stress will help you feel better about yourself, making it easier to get through the rest of your week!

DIY Crafts

It’s not just for kids! DIY crafts are a fun way to spend time with your little ones and give them something useful to do when their friends come over.

  • They’re inexpensive. If you can’t afford the latest must-have toy, consider making it yourself instead of buying it at the store. This is especially true if your child has a specific interest in crafts or other DIY projects already; then she may be able to help you find supplies and assemble them into something cool that she can show off proudly.
  • You can use it yourself! Many DIY projects end up being household items that you can use as well—like this adorable fuzzy felt pet bed or this easy-to-make chainmail bracelet kit.

Camping In Your Yard

Camping in your yard can be a great way to give the children a taste of what it’s like to sleep out under the stars while they are still young enough that they’ll love it.

It’s easy to make camping in your yard happen, too. All you need is a tent, some sleeping bags and pillows, and a fire pit if it isn’t already built into your backyard. If it is already built into your backyard then all you need are marshmallows and graham crackers! You can roast them over the fire pit or just eat them right out of the bag (this works well for younger kids who don’t yet know about s’mores).

If there isn’t an existing fire pit, set up one using stones from around the yard or purchased from any hardware store. It should have sides that go up high enough so that nobody burns themselves when lighting matches nearby clothing items such as hats or scarves which could easily catch fire if left lying around unattended too long before being moved away from their original resting place​

Stargazing Night

  • Go to a dark place. The idea is that you’re looking for the moon and stars, so it’s important to be in as dark of an area as possible. If you can’t find a good spot at night (or if it’s hard to get there), try going somewhere else during daylight hours when it’s not working or school yet.
  • Look for the constellations. There are many constellations that are easy to see with the naked eye, including Orion (his belt), Cassiopeia (her chair), Taurus (the bull), Gemini (the twins), and more! Check out this guide from Space.com for more details on what each constellation looks like.
  • Look for shooting stars! These are actually pieces of space debris that burn up in our atmosphere as they enter Earth’s orbit around our Sun—but don’t worry about them hitting us! Shooting stars don’t actually star at all—they’re meteors instead—and this means we won’t ever run out of them either because there will always be new ones coming down every day 🙂

Spend the day at a park or outdoor recreation site.

  • Take a hike.
  • Go canoeing.
  • Visit a museum or art gallery.
  • Go to the park, zoo, or nature center (or all three!).
  • Go hang out at the beach and wave at people as they drive by in their cars.
  • Pack a lunch and head to the lake with your family for some swimming and fishing fun! Or if you prefer being in nature instead of water, try going mountain biking on those trails that lead up into high altitudes where there’s no oxygen for miles around—that sounds like relaxation to me!

Indoor hopping on the weekend!

  • Indoor hopping is a great way to get out of the house and enjoy some time together as a family or with friends.
  • You can do it at home or at your local community center.
  • The activity can take place during the day, or at night!

Go to the movies.

The movie theater is a great place to enjoy some family fun, but it’s important to choose a movie that is appropriate for your kids. For example, if it’s cold outside (or even inside), maybe don’t see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Instead, pick something that everyone can enjoy together—like The Incredibles 2 or How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. You could also go see a classic like Mary Poppins Returns or Aladdin this holiday season!

Also, keep in mind the time of day when booking tickets. If you’re going on a nice sunny afternoon with the kids, maybe don’t get tickets for an 8 PM showtime at the theater and then have everyone staying up past their bedtime later on!

Finally… remember this rule of thumb: never take your toddler under age two into an R-rated film unless they really really want to go see it (and aren’t scared).

You can have fun at home and outdoors on weekends, even when you don’t want to go anywhere.
