Our indoor air quality is vital to our health, but can it also impact our mood? In honor of World Health Day, take a look at how the air in your home can impact your emotions.
Allergies and Your Attitude
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? If you do, you know how miserable they can be. Itchy, runny nose, burning eyes, and maybe even a sore throat can all go along with allergy symptoms. If your indoor air is full of allergens like dander, dust, mold, and pollen, just to name a few, it can trigger your allergies and make you downright grouchy.
Sleep and Your Sense of Well-Being
Do you feel tired or fatigued even if you spend enough time sleeping? The quality of your sleep might take a hit from poor indoor air quality. Airborne pollutants can cause sore throat, dry or irritated sinuses, or even respiratory issues. Any of these things can compromise the quality of your sleep, leaving you feeling cantankerous at best.
Pets and Your Peace of Mind
Many studies have shown that people how have pets are often healthier, but also more content than people who don’t. But pet dander can cause some people to feel allergy symptoms. Making sure the air in your house is healthy can help make it possible for you to have a pet, which means everyone is happier.
