Peaceful home

A peaceful home can contribute to inner peace which is a predictor of happiness[4]. Living in a peaceful home is associated with higher levels of happiness[1][3]. A peaceful home helps to reduce stress[2] which is bad for the health. A peaceful home is important as a way for adults to set a good example for children by being polite, caring and not fighting/yelling. A peaceful home allows for children to feel loved. A peaceful home is a place where everyone in the house feel physically and emotionally safe.
