The second thing is to ask yourself: are there some things I can control to make my home sound more peaceful? Could I put felt stoppers on doors and drawers to eliminate the slamming? (I LOVE FELT STOPPERS!) Could I turn off the TV and radio? Could my children please use their inside voices? How about the level of my own voice? Could I play some beautiful or upbeat music? Sometimes just being aware of sounds is enough to make me take a little bit of action to do things better. I want my home to appeal to my ears so that it SOUNDS like home to me.
