Happy families are built on a set of pillars. The most important of these pillars include: love, understanding, and mutual respect among everyone. These pillars manifest based on how everyone in the house, big and small, interact with each other and commit to them.

Happy families distinguish themselves with certain positive habits which bring their hearts together and leave no room for disagreements and bickering. Following are some of the most important of these habits which every family seeking happiness should implement:

Eating Meals Together

Although family members are usually busy in their lives with work, school, university and other scheduling conflicts, it is very important for them to sit at least once a day together for a meal on one table. Studies show that doing this helps families share emotions and thoughts among each other.

Greetings in the Morning and Evening

It is a must for families to exchange greetings in the morning after waking up and in the evening after returning from work or school. These greetings must be accompanied with a clear smile. This increases the bonds of love between everyone in the house.

Talking More Than Watching Television

With availability of numerous means of entertainment today, such as, television, computers, video games, etc., family members often no longer find time for chatting. This has greatly [negatively] impacted the power of social and family relationships in the homes. Therefore, it is a must for families to get together from time to time and keep away for some time from means of modern technology.

Family Trips

Collective trips is a tradition which now is lacking among many families. It is an important activity for sharing memories and strengthening family relations. For that reason, specific time must be set aside from time to time for family trips. Include all members of the family for such trips whether outside of the country or within it.

Mutual Trust

It is advised not to keep secrets and hide them from the rest of the family members. This is because they are your main support whenever you get into a problem. Keeping secrets contributes to weakness in family relations and shattering of mutual trust among them.
