It’s easy to find tips and tricks to incorporate daily wellness into your busy schedule. From choosing the right foods to getting exercise and meditating, you’ve probably heard plenty about how to get well from within. However, do you know how to improve wellness from “without”? In this article, we’re going to go over 4 surprising things that impact your wellness from “without”.
1. Where your home is located.
While it’s common knowledge that living under powerlines isn’t the best, where you live actually matters quite a bit. Unsurprisingly, some places such as coasts and forested areas can help boost your overall health and wellness. Living near big and busy roads can negatively impact your health. The same can be said, surprisingly, for living in the suburbs! Similarly, if you live somewhere with weather and humidity that you just can’t stand, you’ll probably find that you feel negatively impacted.
2. How your home is decorated.
There are plenty of studies out there that can tell you in more detail exactly in what ways and how deeply your homes functionality, layout, and decor can affect you. While most people attribute your average ‘bad day’ to poor surroundings, Dr. Roger S. Ulrich suggests that it can even cause depression, anxiety, and even delusions.
3. How many electronics you have.
Though more and more studies are coming out to talk about the dangers of WiFi and electronics around the home, it’s been an unspoken problem. Having too many electronics that link up to 3G/4G networks and wifi can cause not just mental side effects, but physical, as well. While more severe problems such as cancer and infertility are less common, chances are sleeping with your phone or computer in your room can increase insomnia and give you a less restful sleep.
4. How clean and organized your home is.`
There are many reasons behind why a clean and organized home makes us feel happier. It boils down to the fact that it’s just in our nature. But having a clean and organized home can also help you feel more energetic, happier, calmer, and needless to say – it saves you a lot of stress when you’re looking for something!
So while it’s important to focus on what you can do from the inside out to make yourself feel healthy and well, don’t leave your living space out of the picture. Ensuring that your home is a healthy place that promotes wellness will help you feel better and stay healthier, even when you might have a bad day or cheat on your wellness diet.
