Good habits start at home, and that includes healthy living. To improve your health and your quality of life, you need to make sure that your living space encourages healthy living instead of enforcing already bad habits.
Here are a few things you can change around the house to get the ball rolling.
When you experience a lot of stress, the last thing you need is a messy, cluttered home. Decluttering by storing your belongings and cleaning your living space can also clear your mind and create a calmer, more relaxed home environment.
Sunlight and clean air
We all know how good sunlight feels on your face, so open those windows and let the fresh air and light in. Oxygen stimulates your circulation and helps you to think better. The natural light will also have a cheering, refreshing effect on the soul – after all, who likes living in murky semi-darkness? Also remember to regularly check and replace the filter in your air-conditioning unit.
Green is good
Indoor plants not only add colour and beauty, they also help to oxygenate your home and improve the quality of the air throughout your home. There are many indoor plants from which to choose, each with its own beauty and look that can fit into your décor and style.
Make sure that wherever you look, you are reminded of how good your life is. Have plenty of happy family snaps and pictures of things you find pretty. Buy a blackboard for your kitchen wall with an affirmative message of the day and hang signs with positive messages to subconsciously boost your mental happiness.
Creating a healthy home is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Not only will it improve the quality of your life, it will also make everyone who comes to visit you feel good. Look out for Part 2 where we look at more ways to create a healthy home.
