3 Scientifically-Proven Ways to Create Happy Memories at Home

What’s the first thing that you felt when you heard the word “home”? Is your house a place of happiness or a source of stress?

Research shows that human memory is biased toward happiness – it helps improve our quality of life and keeps it that way. And where do we seek pleasure other than at home?

3 Ways to Create Happiness at Home

1. Focus on Frequency Rather Than Intensity

A psychologist said that frequency is a much better predictor of your happiness than the intensity of your positive experiences.

This means that when you have enjoyable moments each day, you are likely to be happier than someone who has something awesome happening just once a month. Instead of determining what makes you happy, ask yourself; “When am I happy?” Then recreate those moments over and over again.

If you’re living with family or housemates, increase the number of positive interactions and make others in your household feel great. No need to wait for the weekends to do something special. Husbands and wives, the little things are greater when repeated than going a one-time big time.

If you’re living alone, do something enjoyable at home each day. It can be something as simple as sipping coffee while lounging in your most comfortable chair. Some people swear by daily rituals that they only do at home: meditation, yoga, even doing chores or watching TV. Make sure you look forward to going home by keeping it clean, secure, and filled with your favourite things.

2. Remember That Community Is Key

There has been a lot of research on happiness, but one thing is certain: being social makes us happy! You can boost your enjoyment of your home by creating positive relationships, strengthening connections, and spending quality time with your family and friends.

You need to commit to staying in touch with people who “fill your tank” – people who make you happy. Greet your spouse, child, or relative with a smile or a hug. Give them your focused attention during mealtimes and conversations. Tell each other funny stories about the day or share something that you are grateful for. Reserve the best part of your day (and yourself) for the people at home.

3. Be Immersed In the Moment

A study found that humans are most happy when completely immersed in what they are doing. If you want to be happier at home, choose activities that let you achieve “flow” – a state of heightened focus and engagement. Whether it’s art, play, or work, give it your undivided attention.

3-scientifically-proven-ways-create-happy-memories-home-in-the-moment

Relish the peace and quiet of early mornings. Live in the moment.

“Happiness is the sum of hundreds of small things,” said Daniel Gilbert. There is no such thing as a magic pill that will give you instant results; instead, happiness is an ongoing and persistent effort.

The famous adage sums it up; “Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.” And that feeling is when you are convinced of what matters most.

That’s why at Ohmyhome, we believe that by making information accessible, empowering those who lack the confidence and experience in transacting properties on their own, or by providing a complete end-to-end property ecosystem, we help build happy homes.
