There goes a famous saying ‘a healthy home is a happy home’ and rightly so because improving your health is directly proportional to the health and sanity of your house. Most often, people who wish to enhance their health and sanity throughout their lives emphasize on nutrition and exercise. They often tend to ignore how the environment can affect their body.
We spend a lot of time in our house, especially considering the pandemic where the work from the home situation has forced people to lock themselves inside their homes. Hence it is crucial to figure out ways to enhance your homes’ health.
This can be as elementary as cleaning your desk or as complicated as removing the toxins and paying attention to the environment surrounding the house. Although everyone’s living space and concentration are different, there are some easy ways to tweak and improve the homes’ health. In this article, we are going to discuss how you can improve your home’s health.
One of the first steps to purify or enhance the homes health is to clarify the atmosphere in which we live. Breathing in fresh air improves good health. The fine particulate matter present in dirty, polluted air often enters the lungs. It causes long-term heart diseases and lung diseases. Hence, purifying the air mitigates the risk of welcoming those diseases into our house and body.
Avoiding chemical-based products
Chemical pesticides and germicides are often used to clean the surfaces, floors and cabin counters of the house. Surfaces are to use essential oils with necessary soap water or any plant-based sprays or products. This can eliminate the need and the growth of toxic chemicals which may aggravate asthma and enhance the cancerous cells in the body.
The lighting of the house
As much as it is essential to get in the vitamin D from sunlight, it is also imperative to block excess sunlight which can impair your sleep. If you live in a city area, which is exposed to higher sunlight, it is essential to get curtains and covers that block part of the sunlight into the house.
We cannot stress enough on the advantages of gardening or planting trees and small pots in the ambience of your house. If you don’t have space, you can always utilize your terrace to perform some gardening work. Staying amidst the plants and greenery can naturally purify your air and provide more oxygen and a piece of mind and calmness to your mind and body.
Accumulation of hotbeds of dust is a common scenario in every household or apartment, whether it’s piling up of the corners of the room or even under your bed or the untouched bookshelf you can see dust everywhere. However, chronic exposure to these dust particles might increase the chances of obtaining allergies and asthma. Hence it is imperative to dust your home as frequently as possible.
