A happy kid makes a happy home is something we all know. But what makes a child happy? Children don’t make a fuss about anything. A healthy child will never crib. They don’t like cribbing. They don’t complain unless they’re in trouble that they can’t manage. So everything boils down to just one point – a healthy baby seldom throws tantrums. Now the main question is, how to keep my baby healthy? How to decrease my baby’s woes? Well, for that, the first step lies in keeping yourself healthy. That doesn’t mean physical health alone. Mental health is of prime importance. Prima facie every mum is happy because she has become a mother and is enjoying motherhood to the fullest. But that is not always the ideal scenario. Mums can go through hell too. You can have piles of clothes lying to be washed when your child wails his lungs out to find you close. You can feel your hormones being nasty on you when all you can do is get up and prepare food for your little monster and then struggle to feed her instead of relaxing in bed for a while. So life can be tough even on a mum. But the real test is to put your chin up and face the odds staring back at the sun. And what helps in such situations is staying happy. So how do you stay happy? There are innumerable ways. Yes. You can do hundreds of different things to keep yourself happy depending upon your nature. You can either read while feeding your baby or listen to music while going about the entire house. You can even take up a hobby or pursue your passion for keeping the interest alive. To share an experience, I was depressed to turn into a babysitting homemaker after eight years of work experience in the corporate world. But then instead of blaming it on destiny, I decided to twist the fate line to suit my convenience. I joined hands with my passion for writing to create a brilliant masterpiece that fetched me loads of name and fame besides happiness. Yes, I was ready with a novel by the end of it all. And lo and behold, I was happy. After working day in and day out to keep my house maintained and after spending my entire day’s energy behind a hyperactive toddler, I did come up with a published novel. I was more than happy and my child, healthy because of the healthy surrounding and exuding happiness.
So stop cribbing and start living. You will crave for a touch of your kid’s hand once they grow up. So feel their warmth till their childhood lasts.
