Improve Your Health with These 7 Eco-Friendly Tips
Apr 15, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

The environment in which you live has a large impact on your health. There are many ways that you can improve your health by paying attention to the environment that you live in and how you treat your body.

Use Non-Toxic Cleaners

One of the things that you can do to improve your health is to keep your home clean. Use eco-friendly products instead of the chemical-filled cleaners that are so common. You should use plant-based products that don’t have these harmful chemicals. Or, you can make your cleaners from common ingredients like vinegar, lemon, baking soda, or even essential oils.

Protect Against Infestations of Pests

Protect your home against infestations by keeping a clean house. Pests like the smoky brown cockroach are common, especially in places with a lot of moisture or standing water. You could consider an eco-friendly company to help you prevent these insects from invading your home, and eliminate any pests that you’ve already found.

Eat an Organic Diet

Eating an organic diet is a great way to improve your health. Purchase organic produce whenever possible. So many of the fruits and vegetables that we eat have pesticides and chemicals sprayed on them to ensure that the crop is large. Even the grains that are used in cereals can contain pesticides, as well as the meat from chickens and cattle that were fed with crops sprayed with chemicals. Read your labels and try to buy local whenever possible so you know where your food comes from and what is in it.

Grow Your Food

Another way you can improve your health and the environment, as well as save yourself some money, is to consider growing your own food. If you don’t have space outdoors, you can still use small containers or lighted grow boxes in your home. Or, you may consider a small collection of plants on your window sill for a few vegetables and herbs.

Growing your own food helps you to save money and also ensures you know exactly what is in your food. There will be no pesticides and you can control the food and nutrients added to the soil. There is also the bonus that keeping plants in your home can help clean the air and provide you with more oxygen.

Go Outside

If you want to stay healthy, then go outside. Spending time in nature is a great stress reliever, and the sunlight provides you with Vitamin D to boost your immune system. Fresh air can help you feel better instantly and give you more energy. The outdoors is also a great place to get in some exercise. And, you can reduce pollution by choosing to bike or walk to work or complete errands instead of driving your car.

Hydrate

Drinking enough water is a great way to keep yourself healthy. Every cell and organ of your body is made up largely of water, so it’s important that you drink enough to keep all your systems running smoothly. Carry a reusable water bottle with you. This is convenient and will save you money. Don’t waste money on plastic water bottles that produce plastic waste and potentially contain harmful BPA’s.

Unplug

Constant use of electronics like computers, televisions, and cell phones can have a negative impact on your health. You can do yourself a favor and improve your health and save on energy at the same time by unplugging these devices on occasion. Shutting down your devices or banning them from your bedroom will give you a much needed break and improve the quality of your sleep. And, by removing them, you won’t be distracted or kept awake by any annoying blinking lights or alerts.

If you do your best to follow these measures, you will start to improve your health and do the environment a favor by reducing your impact and pollution.
