Even with the pandemic nearing its end, chances are you’re still looking for ways to create a healthy environment for everyone in your family. Fortunately, you can promote wellness at home with a bit of effort and some extra help with these tips from Decks & More.
Breathe Easy Indoors
According to experts, indoor allergens can trigger respiratory issues. With your family spending more time indoors, you need to pay attention to the indoor air quality. Poor indoor air can lead to asthma flare-ups and allergies.
One way to keep your air quality high is to keep your home clean of dust and animal dander. Regular vacuuming with a HEPA filter and cleaning drapes, bedding, and other linens can remove many allergens from the house. Additionally, consider an air cleaner or purifier. Use a portable cleaner or upgrade your furnace or HVAC unit.
Bring Relaxation Home
If you’re feeling a lot of stress, there are ways you can relax in the comfort of your home. Stock your home with coloring books and ways to occupy your mind when anxious. Pick up a hobby to recharge after work. Likewise, play music and sing out loud to create a happier environment.
To relax, many people turn to yoga. You do not have to go to a yoga studio to enjoy the health benefits of this activity. Instead, consider DIYing a yoga studio at home. Choose where you want the studio to be, such as an extra bedroom or a storage area in your garage. You need a yoga mat and plenty of space for everyone to stretch and work out in. Consider warm lighting and house plants to boost mood and focus for a more comfortable design.
Continue to take care of your body at home. Stock your home with healthy food options and encourage your family to exercise regularly.
Make a Major Change
When you care for your personal space, you care for yourself. It is easy to feel out of control, but remodeling and redecorating puts control in your hands. For instance, you could add wallpaper that’s one of a kind for a little style. And if you have something bigger in mind, think about hiring professionals for your home. They can help you understand what permits may be necessary for construction and how much work your project requires.
One way to remodel your home for positivity is to add light to the space. Vaulted ceilings and skylights provide natural light, which can make the house look brighter and more open. If you have an unfinished basement, consider updating it. Create a playroom for your kids or a media room. Not only does finishing your basement add value, but it provides you with extra space when the entire family has to stay home.
In addition to creating a functional and healthier space, remodeling can improve your property’s overall value. If you plan to sell the home in the future, pay attention to what buyers may be interested in. For instance, if you live in a neighborhood that prides itself on landscaping, ensure your landscape is up to par. Always take photos of your work before and after and keep receipts for all changes you make to the home.
Focus on the cleanliness and organization of your home to create a more healthy and functional environment. Additionally, if you make healthy options readily available, you can encourage your family to remain well.
