Our current lifestyles have changed drastically due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and most of us find ourselves spending most of our time indoors, often cooped up in a room for long periods of time. As we go about our day either working or attending online classes, most of us usually close our doors and sometimes even our windows to avoid disturbances. This minimizes air circulation in our environment, which ultimately leads to bad air quality. With stale air and other pollutants present, this stuffy environment makes us moody and unmotivated, affecting our well-being and productivity levels. Here are some tips you can adopt to improve the quality of air in your living space, in order to elevate your mood and increase productivity levels:
1. Keep your windows open
This might sound pretty straightforward but keeping your windows open is the cheapest and easiest way to maintain air circulation, allowing your room to receive constant airflow. Bringing in fresh air from outdoors not only removes stagnant air but could also increase oxygen levels in your environment.
2. Clean your room regularly
The buildup of dust, hair, and other impurities in your environment can irritate your respiratory system. As much as you can, vacuum regularly to reduce irritants in the air. Keeping your sheets, cushions, and curtains clean can also improve air quality by preventing the growth of dust mites.
3. Remove air pollutants
It is important to identify and remove sources of pollutants that might be in your room such as paint, varnishes & waxes, cleaning products, and aerosol sprays. Moving these items away from your main living environment could greatly increase the quality of air around you.
4. Keep indoor plants
Keeping a few indoor plants not only improves air quality but also beautifies your surroundings. Houseplants such as English Ivy, Aloe Vera, Peace Lily, and Bamboo Palm can help remove toxins from the air while increasing oxygen levels in the environment.
5. Activated charcoal
Extremely porous in structure, activated charcoal traps harmful particles found in the air, while removing excess humidity and strong odors in the environment. Place some around your room as a natural alternative to air purifiers.
