They say that your health is the most important thing, since without your health, you can't have anything else. So, it should stand to reason that when you're creating your home, the most important thing to think about is how your living space will impact your health. You're there every single day, so it's a worthwhile investment to make your home conducive to a healthy lifestyle.
"Considering how much time we actually spend in our homes, it’s unreasonable to think we can simply outsource our health to the gym or the therapist’s office," health coach Laura Ellen tells Bustle. "Health must be built into our lives, especially ours homes. More Americans than ever work from home at least part of the work week. And, in the age of social media scrolling and show streaming, we’re spending more time lounging and passively comparing ourselves to others late into the night. Your environment affects how you physically move and live, the activities you spend your time participating in, even the way you think about yourself in relation to the wider world."
Making your home a healthier place doesn't require a complete overhaul. Here are some small changes you can make to it that will improve your health.
