We all want to lead as healthy lives as possible, and as well as eating right and taking plenty of exercise, one of the best things we can do to this end is to make a few simple changes to our homes, which will allow us to be healthier than ever before.

Sound good? Here are some of the most effective ways to make your home healthier right now:

Pick up a plant or two

If you do not currently have any houseplants in your home, you should hit the garden center and pick a few up right now. Why? Because plants are great at purifying the air of various toxins which could cause your allergies to flare up or make it harder for you to breathe. Have at least one plant in every room for maximum benefit.

Install a water filter

A good water filter, like the ones you can buy at this website, will help to ensure that your water is as pure and delicious as possible, which means it is less likely to upset your stomach, and you are more likely to choose healthy water over other beverage too, so it is certainly worth the investment.

Make your own cleaning products

Many cleaning products you can buy at the store contain volatile organic compounds that can irritate the lungs and make conditions like asthma worse, as well as potentially having a carcinogenic effect. By giving them up and, instead, making your own products from common kitchen ingredients like baking soda and white vinegar,m you can improve your whole family’s health and save money at the same time.

Install vent fans

Installing vent fans in your home’s crawlspace is a good way to keep humidity levels below the 50 percent mark, which means your home is less likely to develop a damp and mold problem, which could make you or your family sick. If you live in a high humidity area it is, then, a sensible upgrade to make.

Invest in a shoe bench

Investing in a shoe bench for your hallways - a place where people can sit to take off their shoes and store them, is a good way to encourage a no-shoe household, Why is that important? Because when people do not wear shoes in the house, they do not drag in dirt and pollen which can cause sickness and allergies in the family. Buy everyone a pair of slippers and it will not be so hard to convince them.

Switch to soy candles

If you are a candle-burning household, then switching away from paraffin to soy or beeswax will mean you release fewer unpleasant chemicals into your home which could cause sickness and allergies, while still enabling you to enjoy the soft lighting that only candles can provide.

As you can see, there are lots of pretty simple things you can do to improve the health of your family when you are at home, so why not make a few changes today? You won’t regret it.
