Mental health tips that makes a happy family

1. Spend lots of time together with your family
If you have a family, it is important to spend plenty of time together. Your children, especially, need that face-to-face time. It is in these moments that they will tell you about their day, their feelings, and their innermost thoughts. If you do not make time for this, you will miss a lot of the cues and signals that might mean your children need additional support.

But it is not enough to just be with them, you really have to listen to them too. They want to tell you about the drama they experienced in school? Their play during leisure hours (even for the hundredth time)? Their school? All you should do us listen. Do not be in the mood to advice or a scold, but just listen to what they are saying. This has been proven to be an effective way to make your children feel heard, safe, and secure in their own home and their own world, which is a huge step to keeping their mental health intact.

2. Surround yourselves with  people that can influence lives positively
Children rely on their peers for a lot of choice and decisions, and that is okay. But since all children are different and you cannot choose their friends for them, it is also important to make sure that they are surrounded with positive influences in their lives. Make friends with other families that share your values. Invite family (if they are positive) over and into your lives. As your kids grow, they may or may not want to let you into their personal space. This is normal. But to make it through these times, make sure that positive people are available to help them through when you are not around.

3. Stay active as a family
Families that do activities together are among the happiest and healthiest. This might include playing sports, seeing movies or plays together, visiting museums, or taking day trips. It does not matter what you do, but make sure that at least some of your activities are done together on a regular basis. This fosters trust, encouragement among each other, and opens communication. You do not have to do everything together, and honestly you shouldn’t. But allowing some time for togetherness is a great option for staying mentally healthy.
