Our homes are an extension of who we are and that's why it's so important that you always try to find ways to be happier in your home.

What we do in our homes shapes our mood, affects our productivity, and even influences our outlook on life!

You want to have a happy and relaxing place to come back to after a long and exhausting day out in the world.

So here are 7 ways to be happier in your home to keep you smiling and motivated!

1. Make Your Bed

I'm going to sound like your parent but find the time to make your bed!

This three minute task is one of the simplest ways to be happier in your home.

Believe it or not, making your bed (and other feel-good tasks like exercising and cooking) is something called a keystone habit.

Keystone habits are those routines that, if you can identify them, spill over to other habits.

Plus, seeing that your bed is nicely made may inspire you to clean the rest of your room.

You know the saying, "a clean room is a happy room," which in turn will make a happier you!

2. Display Sentimental Items

Anything that will remind you of happy memories should be on display in your home.

Maybe it's pictures of you and your siblings when you were kids, or a picture of a pet who died.

Anything that reminds you of how great your life has been so far!

Create a collage of all your concert and movie ticket stubs to put on the wall or have a memento you kept from your wedding framed.

3. Do Small Favors for Your House Mates

Mow the lawn for your husband, or take the trash out for your roommate, just because.

The ability to cultivate strong, healthy relationships is one of the biggest contributors to health and happiness, but when you start to keep score, the benefit is lost.

We've all said things like, "No!

It's YOUR turn to clean up the dog poop!" But instead of keeping tally of who does more, just do what you can, when you can, without expecting some kind of reward.

It's a well-known fact that when you do good, you feel good!

Plus hopefully doing small favors for your house mates will cause them to do it for you too.
