Healthier Home Habits For Your Family

Healthier Home Habits for Your Family

All the best habits start at home. By creating a healthy home life, this tends to naturally expand into other areas of your life, which benefits you, your family and those around you. We’ve put together our favourite tips to get you started.

 Keep Active

  • Spend Time Outside
  • Clean and Green
  • Reduce Screen Time
  • Breathe Healthy Air

There are a multitude of ways you can introduce physical activity into your life. Perhaps you like to start your day with an early visit to the gym, or a leisurely stroll with the dog is more your style. Whatever you choose, it’s important for your body and mind to keep active every day.

Experiencing the world outside your home is a great healthy habit to implement into your life. If you have a backyard, doing some gardening is great for your well-being and sense of achievement. Plus, it’ll contribute to your ‘keeping active’ habit. If there’s no space for a garden, you can use your balcony or other outdoor area to meditate or simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the outside world.

It feels amazing when your home is clean and tidy, but the smell of nasty, chemical-based products can be off-putting (and dangerous). A healthier habit for your household is to only choose ‘green’, less-harmful cleaning products. You still get the great, clean home feeling, but with less of the nasties.

These days, our screens to tend follow us throughout our homes, so consciously reducing your screen time is an important healthy habit to create. If possible, try to introduce a technology-free day, once a week, or at least once a month. Being away from your phone and computer screen allows you to reconnect with people and form new relationships, as well as become more aware of the world.

If your home is air conditioned, this plays a significant part in the quality of the air that you breathe. Keeping your air conditioning units well maintained and sanitised is a great healthy habit to create. You’ll benefit from cleaner air and reduced electricity costs.

The best way to improve your indoor air quality is to have a HydroKleen technician inspect, clean, and sanitise your system. Call us today on 1300 608 318 to get started with a new healthy home habit.
