There’s nothing more important than our health - both physical and mental. But we don’t often correlate home with the betterment of our health. Consider air quality, water quality and light for starters. Did you know that respiratory exposure to any mold may be capable of causing brain inflammation, cognitive deficits, and emotional problems?
Water quality has a profound effect on the home impacting cooking, cleaning, bathing and most importantly - what you’re putting in your body.
Light is another element. Natural light from windows help connect us to nature. When man evolved, he lived in the forest with the rabbits and the wolves. Our brains are an artifact of 3.6 billion years of evolution. In other words, our DNA is hardwired with the need to connect to nature. The term Biophilia is popping up in home design. “Bio” means nature, living. “Philia” means love of, “a love of life or living things.” Therefore natural light, and plants help connect us to our roots.
