How to Change Your Home to Enhance Your Health

We spend a good portion of our lives inside our homes. So it would be a good idea to have a home that helps you look after your health. But how can you do this? Luckily there are many ways to make a home that is conducive to looking after your health. Sometimes you just need to put in a little effort and get creative, and there you go. Also, it helps if you look inwardly and discover things about yourself that you want to express in your home to inspire and lift you up. Here are a few ideas:

The Kitchen

The kitchen is the space you make all your meals, and if you don’t want to be in there, then it may make making healthy home-cooked meals more challenging. So, you need to work on making the space a place you want to spend time in. If you have the money, then it may be an idea to have a complete overhaul. Kitchens tend to date relatively quickly, and as it is used a lot, so surfaces get damaged. Therefore a new kitchen makes sense. However, if a new kitchen is not in your budget, there are many other ways you can upgrade it and make it more pleasing. Perhaps all you need are new lights, some music, and a few attractive images on the wall. Maybe you need to rearrange where all your cooking utensils go. Near the stove where you cook is a good shout. You can make little aesthetic changes to the kitchen by changing the taps, cupboard and drawer handles. How about a paint job or sticking fake tiles to the wall? If you are limited in space, maybe you need a space-saving table and chairs, one that you pull out from a wall. Get creative, and you can definitely make the kitchen a better place to be. 


Decluttering is a great way to enhance your health in many ways. First of all, it reduces stress and anxiety as you have reduced the amount of clutter, and this causes an over-abundance of mental and visual stimuli, which can also stop you from sleeping well. Clutter also keeps you stuck in the past by constantly reminding you of it. Another way it damages your health is by allowing dust, mould, pollen, insects, mice faeces, etc., start building up. A cluttered home is a breeding ground for infestation, and all these things can start contaminating the air. The causes respiratory illness and allergies, among other things. Children are especially at risk of these things.
