5 Steps To A Healthier Home

Believe it or not, being healthy at home isn’t just about what’s in your fridge. Sure, it’s a good starting point, but there are actually many ways to create a prohealth environment through- out your home. Here are five simple ways to start.

1. DECLUTTER THE KITCHEN

In this case, we’re not talking about knickknacks—we’re talking about food. Go through your cabinets, pantry, fridge and freezer and say goodbye to anything that’s been lingering for way too long. Donate canned goods you’ve been saving ‘just in case,’ get rid of freezer-burned processed meals and old packages of crackers and snacks. Once your shelves are cleared out, start buying and eating mostly fresh items, picking up just what you need every couple of days as opposed to doing a mega shopping trip every couple of weeks.

2. HONOR THE EATING AREA 

If you’re wolfing down meals standing up at the kitchen counter or on the sofa in front of the TV, it’s likely that you’ve adopted some poor eating habits. Make sure you have a dedicated dining space to sit down and enjoy an eating experience that includes quality time with your loved ones, as well. Not only will this lead to eating better prepared, healthier meals, it will force you to eat more slowly, which will help you avoid overeating. 

3. CHECK THE AIR QUALITY IN THE MOST FREQUENTED SPACE 

Whether it’s the living room or family room, make sure the air is healthy in the room in which you spend the most time. Dust and vacuum more often than usual (especially if you have pets or use a fireplace frequently), open the windows to circulate air, or use an air purifier or salt rocks to remove impurities. Add some house plants to help absorb carbon dioxide and release additional oxygen.

4. CREATE A REST-INDUCING BEDROOM 

Many of us aren’t getting enough sleep, which is at the root of a wide variety of health problems. Do a quick analysis of your sleeping quarters to make sure they’re conducive to a good night’s rest: Is your mattress well-suited for your sleeping needs? Is there a television that needs to go? Is the temperature cool enough? Is an after-hours quiet zone enforced? If not, get your bedroom in sleeping shape pronto.

5. CARVE A RESTORATIVE NICHE 

Whether it’s a small workout area, or a reading and meditation nook, everyone needs to build their own private space within the busy walls of their home. Whether it’s for exercise or simply quiet time, having a mini-escape right at home is essential to both your physical and mental well-being.
