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 some more things you can change around the house to get the ball rolling.
Water is life
Unfortunately, water is also a source of pollutants that may affect your health. Fitting a water filter either to your taps or having a water filter pitcher in the fridge will ensure you drink only the cleanest, purest water. You might also want a water filter for your shower. Depending on where you live, you might need to avoid tap water completely, so make sure your fridge has enough space to store all the bottled water you need.
Cooking your meals at home allows you to use fresh, organic ingredients that you bought yourself, from reputable and sustainable suppliers. Make sure you have all the gadgets you need to maintain a healthy diet such a blender for smoothies, a steamer for meat and veggies and an indoor contact grill to cut down on fatty meals. Leave fruits and nuts out in attractive bowls for when you feel peckish.
Exercise is a great way to not only get a healthy body but also boost energy levels and make you a happier person thanks to all those endorphins. If you have room in your apartment, create a fitness corner – even if you can only fit in a treadmill or a stationary bike. A yoga mat and an exercise ball along with a medicine ball and some loose weights completes the picture.
You spend a lot of time sleeping so making your bedroom a healthy living space is crucial. Use eco-friendly linens that is hypo-allergenic and make sure your pillows moulds correctly to your body for the right posture to avoid neck and back pain. Make sure your bedroom is clean and uncluttered to create a restful atmosphere. If possible, sleep with a window open to breathe good fresh clean air at night.
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.
