Why creating clean air environments could be the best investment into your health this year
The quality of the air we breathe is now considered one of the biggest health concerns worldwide. Air pollution is now a global epidemic and according to the Global Wellness Institute, toxic air is responsible for the premature deaths of 6.5 million people each year, making it the fourth leading cause of death in the world.
Second to the sun, pollution is also the biggest cause of aging of our skin. Air pollution can also impact our energy levels, mood, hormones, cause fatigue, anxiety, depression – and even affect our performance. The more polluted the air we breathe, the less productive we are said to be. Even sleep disorders are said to be interlinked to poor air quality. There’s increasing research that the negative effects of air pollution can cause us to lose sleep.
It’s not just the quality of the air that we need to be aware of – indoor pollution can be highly toxic as well. In fact, outdoor air pollution is around 4 to 5 times less polluted than air indoors. We need to be mindful about the toxins emitted by building materials, household cleaning products – and even our skincare and aromatherapy products like candles.
Which is why it’s more crucial than ever for each of us to take responsibility of creating cleaner and greener environments inside our homes, offices, gyms, schools, and other indoor spaces. The good news is that there are many ways we can keep our air quality thus our lungs and respiratory system, cleaner so we can breathe well.
Planting trees is essential for our health and well known to help boost your phycology. Trees can clean the air we breathe as well as filter our water quality.
Placing plants around our indoor living environment is also beneficial as plants act like natural air filters and purify the air by absorbing certain chemicals in the atmosphere. Plants have the ability to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen – a win-win situation for both trees and humans!
Purchasing a high-quality air purifier could be the best investment for your health this year and this is why;
Getting outdoors into nature and lung-cleansing hiking holidays is an inspiring way to keep on top of your health. However, our home is our sanctuary, our haven of safety hence we need make sure the air we daily breath is clean and purified!
