Top 5 Ways to Create a Healthier Home

Monthly Message

Did you know the average person spends 90 percent of their life indoors and two thirds of that time is spent in their home? With so much time spent at home, imagine the impact a healthy home can have on your mood, health, and overall well-being. In the spirit of new year resolutions, try these five simple tips this year to make your home healthier and yourself happier:

Bring in more light by pulling back the curtains and letting natural light in your home. Exposure to more natural light through the day can have a positive impact on our mood, behavior, and sleep quality.

Clear the clutter to create a more calming space. In doing so, you can have what you need, where and when you need it, which is a great way to reduce stress and save you time.

Find peace and quiet. Reducing noise in your home can allow you to better relax after a stressful day and improve quality of sleep.

Get the temperature right. The temperature of your home can have a profound impact on both your mental and physical wellbeing, especially at night. Studies show that sleeping at a cooler temperature can help you sleep better, plus you’ll save money on your energy bill!

Let the fresh air in by opening your windows, even if it’s just for a short period of time. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pollutants can accumulate in your home to unhealthy levels if you don’t let enough outdoor air in.

We focus so much on improving our health, but we tend to focus solely on diet, exercise, and sleeping habits to live a healthy life. But when we spend so much time in our home, it’s just as important to figure out ways to improve our living space!
