Most of us these days own a home while the others consider their rented space as their “Home Sweet Home”. Whatever the situation it is, we put in a lot of thought while moving into a new home and do our best to make it as cozy as possible. We even spend a lot of money on the interiors, the furniture, the electrical fittings, etc.
However, how many of us do actually consider converting our manmade houses into a space that is naturally healthy? We simply assume that our houses are clean and hence it is a naturally healthy habitat but it is time now to put in more thoughts as to how to make our homes naturally healthier.
Here are four simple steps by which you can do this.
- The very first step is to concentrate on what we eat. Eating healthy is creates a healthy home naturally. For this, we can start by cooking our own meals rather than depending on restaurants to deliver our food or buying processed food. We should also pay attention to the ingredients we use and switch to natural products & whole grains and strictly avoid synthetic additives.
- Secondly, we should avoid buying fruits and vegetables that are soaked with harmful chemicals and opt for organic products. Another way by which this can be achieved is by growing your own garden where you use only natural pesticides to ward off bugs and weeds. We should also limit the use of pesticides on our crops and rely on efficient equipment such as the dry herb vaporizers.
- Next, we should reduce using toxic products slowly and ultimately such as plastics, chemicals, synthetic cosmetics/shampoos, and other such items. Instead, opt for more safer and natural products like natural cleaning products such as baking soda or steam. Additionally, avoid products that contain sulfates, phthalates, parabens, and other such harmful chemicals in your daily use items.
- Lastly, implement steps to clean the air inside the house naturally. For this, try avoiding the sources of indoor air pollutants by buying on safe and non-toxic products. You should also ensure that your home has good ventilation and ensure to deodorize it regularly. Additionally, you can grow natural air purifying plants to improve the quality of the air inside the house.
