New Year’s Resolution Made Easy: Being healthier is just a breath away!

Healthy Air: Are you making a new year’s resolution to be healthier in 2020? While you can swear that you’ll hit the gym or cut out those delicious carbs from your diet, there’s a one-time choice you can make that will have a positive effect on your health. It has to do with improving the air you breathe in your home.
Many nasty things could be lurking in your home’s air.
The ones that come to mind first are usually smoking, germs, pets, mold, trash, and those particles kicked up with every flush of the toilet, but here are some you may not have thought of:
Chemicals used in manufacturing can linger in products and slowly evaporate over time. One of the most well-known off-gassing scents is the “new car smell”. Any manufactured product can off-gas, whether it’s plastic, metal, or cloth.
Ceiling Fans or Vacuuming:
Every time air moves, it disrupts settled particles. Dust mites, pollen, and pet dander settle on fabrics throughout your home, including on your curtains and bedding. Vacuuming is one way to suck up dust and dander, but it isn’t always efficient. Sometimes vacuuming simply stirs dust mites around, rather than removing them, according to a study from Woolcock Institute of Medical Research in Australia. In fact, vacuum cleaners can increase levels of dust particles in the air that contribute to allergies, another study found. (YourCareerEverywhere.com)
Burning Candles or Incense:
Your everyday candle is typically made of something called paraffin wax. Paraffin, made from petroleum, will throw all sorts of nasty garbage into the air if you light it on fire. Some examples of this “nasty garbage” include acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. These compounds can lead to respiratory issues, asthma, and other conditions that you definitely don’t want. (SecondNature.com)
