Creating a Healthier Home

By Donna Stark

We all want to be happy in life, but just as important as our desire to be happy is, we also need to be healthy. Nothing can take the place of good health. We've all learned that this past year, haven't we? And although we've been eating nutritious foods, getting the recommended amount of sleep, reducing stress, and exercising daily, it seems like there is more to be done. If you want to ensure the safety and health of your family, while making sure all your bases are covered, take a look at your home. A well-designed home can have a lasting impact on everyone's well-being. Here are some suggestions.

Update Your Bedrooms

Whether you realize it or not, your sleeping environment plays a huge role in the quality of sleep you get each night. Ideally, the vibe of your bedroom should be completely different from other rooms in the house. You want it to be relaxing and refreshing, but how can that be achieved? Take a look at the following tips..

  • Keep the room dark and cool
  • Remove electronics that emit blue light
  • Eliminate distracting noises ... use a white noise machine if you have to
  • Add some houseplant or humidifiers to improve air quality
  • Clear out the clutter

Redesign Your Workspace

Working from home? Online school? Save everyone's back by investing in some ergonomic furniture and equipment. And if you aren't able to buy new furniture at the moment, see what you can do with your existing pieces. Can you purchase new cushions or a lumbar support chair pad? What about a standing desk attachment that you can put on top of the desk you are already using? Try to figure out effective ways to stop working from the couch and the bed. Your back will thank you for it!

Eliminate the Germs

If you are looking for more tips on how to prevent the spread of germs in your home (other than deep cleaning), you came to the right place. Check them out below.

  • Place a shoe bench by your front door to keep dirt and germs out of your home
  • Replace your bathroom and kitchen fixtures with hands-free models
  • Keep your air clean and healthy with air purifiers
  • Open windows regularly to let fresh air in

Happiness and Good Health? You Bet!

Thankfully, we don't have to choose between one or the other when it comes to happiness and health. Although we may have to put some work into it, we can have both! Here's to a healthy end of the year!
