There are many factors that affect the tone of the home. Our goal here is to work on the ones we can actually control. Why? So we can create a refuge from the world for our families. A safe haven.
This blog will be focus on a few key areas:
- Healthy Spirits
- Healthy Minds
- Healthy Bodies
- Healthy Relationships
- Healthy Habits
When we develop these areas, we can’t help but have a happier, healthier place to call home. Over the coming weeks and months we will delve more deeply into each category.
I like to think of the above as a kind of formula for creating the home I desire. None of these are a one shot deal. This happy home thing is a constant process. We must continually work on it. We can’t expect perfection, but we can do our best (that looks different for everyone).
Below is a quick overview of each category:

Where do you feel like you are doing well? Which areas do you want to improve? I’d love to hear!
