10 benefits of a healthy home


10. Share and communicate

Having a healthy home also means having a healthy relationship with the people you share your home with. If you are just starting to think about sprucing up your place make sure your partner and children (dependant on their ages) are willing to share the tasks and chores with you otherwise you may feel resentful. Even little kids can be encouraged to clear away their toys themselves at the end of the day.

Eating together, if at all possible, also makes for a happier environment. You can catch up with each other's news and talk about what's been going on at work or at school. Children often seem to just need their phone for company but insist that food time is a screen-free zone. It's often when you are sharing a meal and chatting without any pressure that children open up about their worries and concerns.

Having a harmonious home that's clean and well-organised makes you feel a whole lot happier, and perhaps healthier too!
