How to Start Being More Healthy in Your Family Home


Making your home healthier can be an incremental process. Unlike a fresh coat of paint or new flooring, creating a healthier space can be done with just one new houseplant in the corner, one essential oil diffuser, or one basket to capture clutter. Consider the tips below to make your space fresher, cleaner and better for you and your family.

Add a Water Filter

Add a filter for your drinking water. This can be as simple as a pitcher you can pour directly out of or a stainless steel countertop filter from which you can fill up your reusable drinking water bottles. To make life even easier, you can create a water routine at the end of the day. As you clean up the kitchen after dinner, simply get in the habit of loading up your water filters or pitcher filters each evening before bed so you can enjoy fresh, cool water each morning.

Bring in More Fresh Air

Depending on where you live, opening up windows can be a challenge. However, even 30 minutes of open windows and doors will allow you to create a cross-breeze that will freshen the air in the space. Consider investing in a window fan with side flanges that will create a vacuum around the van. These fans do a great job of drawing air in from outside and forcing fresh air through the space. If you can’t open enough windows to create a cross breeze in a small space, these drafting fans can increase air movement.

Add Fragrance With Essential Oils

Treat yourself to an essential oil diffuser to freshen the air without a lot of VOC’s. If you don’t want a diffuser on the counter, you can also add essential oils to a small bowl of dry rice. These little bowls or dishes can be tucked back on a bookshelf to easily scent the space without increasing the number of things on a counter.


A home that smells fresh, clean and clutter free will be great for your overall well-being. The ability to relax fully with a glass of clean, filtered water in a space that is soothing and calm will add tremendously to your sense of well-being.
