8 Tips for creating a peaceful home environment for your marriage

The basic tips below will get you started on how to create a peaceful home for your marriage.

1. Agree on this goal (having a peaceful home) with your spouse.

Discuss and understand what their idea of a peaceful family or peaceful home means for both of you.

Then come up with a plan of action and implement it.

2. Eliminate any unnecessary activities, relationships, arguments, and anything that could be adding unwanted stress in your life.

In addition, stay out of unwanted drama or fights with family and friends.

A great book to read to help with this is Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life by Dr. Henry Cloud.

3. Get your finances in order.

Budgeting and getting out of debt can help relieve so much stress!

Dave’s book is a proven step-by-step guide that shows you to get out of debt, build wealth, and budget right.

4. Become active together, exercise, eat healthy, and drink plenty of water.

This will help you and your spouse to FEEL better too.

5. Be intentional with your relationships.

Marriage comes first, spend time and connect with each other and your kids; children spell love time.

Do something like playing a game, going to a hands-on science center, cooking, playing a sport, etc.

Or anything that gets you focused on each other while having fun.

6. Peace at home requires decorating your home too.

Therefore decorate your home to be:

» Serene.

» Calm.

» Welcoming.

» Peaceful.

» And cozy.

7. Organize your home to prevent clutter.

Kids do not make this easy at all but being organized has awesome benefits.

Our daughter is a little over 15 months old so we know what it is like, and often have a messy living room (her playroom for now).

We just try to pick up once or twice a day.

8. Set rules for your home.

We don’t imply you make your home to be a court room.

Just set your principles or standards and stick to them, while being flexible with the minor and unimportant things.

Make it a priority

Becuase creating a peaceful home environment does not depend on you alone. You and your spouse have to make it a priority. It’s best to have your spouse in agreement with you.

Then commit to achieving this goal by a specific date. Make it a priority and be very intentional about achieving this goal.

To do that, you both have to be on the same page or you will simply be working against each other. Which means you won’t be able to achieve the peaceful home environment you both want for your marriage.
