How to make my family happy? This important question holds the key to more meaningful relationships with the other members of your household. To help you get started, we’ve put together plenty of ideas and suggestions to brighten your family members’ days. With any luck, you can start forging even more powerful and fulfilling connections with your loved ones.
Talk to your family members at the end of the day.
It is very important that you let them know about your life. That way, they can understand you, congratulate or empathize with you and generally know what’s going on in your life. In turn, it is equally important that you know about their lives too, so that they feel understood, supported and can be reassured that they are not alone
Spend time with your family members.
Do fun activities with them. This could include going for walks together, visiting museums and art shows, watching a movie, going for picnics, spending time together in a hobby, building something together, cleaning or renovating together, shopping, playing sports, and so forth
Take interest in the interests of each of your family members.
Learn what they love doing and ask questions about it. Ask them how their hobby, their interest, or their work is going. Be an active listener when they tell you and learn what you can. Get informed on the things they are interested in, so you can have meaningful conversations or go to meaningful events together.
Show genuine concern about your family members.
Do not keep your feelings bottled up. If you love them, then tell them that you love them. If you care about them, tell them this. Go out of your way to remind each family member what glues you all together––love, care, and support
Surprise your family members sometimes.
Notice the little details and help them out without them asking you. Make dinner for them, prepare a trip somewhere for them, or do a chore they dislike doing.
Be a good listener.
Do not always shower your family members with advice. Just hear them out at times. That is all they need. Make sure they know that whatever they are talking about, you are there to listen and be supportive.
Try small gestures to help.
Even the smallest things count. With a simple text or a brief phone call, you can make someone’s day. Just make sure you leave a positive message that will leave them feeling happy. When you know that someone is going through a hard time, call text, and be with them in their time of need like you would like them to do for you
