Thinking about improving your health doesn’t just mean focusing on nutrition and your exercise routine. Your home is where you spend most of your time so you want to ensure that your house enhances your lifestyle in a positive way. This could mean cleaning up a bit more, dusting when you can, removing toxins, and all-in-all paying attention to the environment you live in.
If you're in need of a few ideas, here are a few things you can tweak easily that can help improve the health of your home:
Love having candles around the house? Avoid petroleum-based paraffin wax candles as they can emit potentially hazardous chemicals. Instead, opt for soy-based candles that don't emit those harmful chemicals and are a more sustainable source. Soy-based candles also typically last longer than paraffin wax candles.
Tap water can contain many chemical contaminants, such as heavy metals, chlorine, pesticides, arsenic, and even rocket fuel. These contaminants can be harmful to our health. Using a water filter can help remove some of those contaminants, allowing you to live a healthier lifestyle and not have to worry so much about what you're drinking.
Plastic containers can be extremely detrimental to our health. They can contain toxic chemicals that slowly leak into the food and beverages we store in them, which we then consume. Look for reusable and recyclable glass containers instead.
Toxic chemicals have been known to agitate asthma, contain carcinogens, and can be linked to a handful of health problems.
Try to use more natural products when you're cleaning, such as essential oils, organic soaps, or plant-based products. Vinegar, lemon, and baking soda work together to make a wonderful cleaner to help remove dirt and grime.
Air pollution has a huge effect on our health and can cause a variety of adverse health problems. When you invest in an air purifier, you can help mitigate the pollution in your home and improve the quality of air.
