Do you ever think about the air that you breathe, day in and day out?

Have you ever considered what goes through your nose and gets deposited in your lungs when you take a breath? Do you ever wonder about the number of “particulates” in each breath you suck in? (“Particulates” are just a fancy word for bits of dust, grime, metals, chemicals, and tiny bits of “stuff” that circulate continually in the air around us.)

So to ask the question again: Do you ever think about the air that you breathe day in and day out? I bet not. Most of us never give a second thought to what’s in the air that we breathe.

Don’t get me wrong. I get that air quality has not been top-of-mind in the past.

But let me tell you this. The quality of the air we breathe has never been more important than now.

Two Fantastic Reasons To Care About Your Indoor Air Quality

The better our construction techniques, the tighter the homes we’ve built. That’s good news when it comes to warmth and energy efficiency, but it’s bad news when it comes to indoor air quality.

These days, because our houses are so air-tight, we have less circulation and input of fresh air. The particulates that get into the air tend to stay there and get recirculated, lowering the indoor air quality.

Here are two fantastic reasons to care about your indoor air quality and the breaths you take each day.

Reason Number One: Brain Health

The first reason to care about indoor air quality (IAQ) is that it affects your thinking. Indoor air quality has been proven to affect your cognitive processes. One study showed that workers in a building with poor air quality scored lower on simple math tests than workers in a facility with good air quality. The poor air quality also lowered the scores on a brain-teaser test that asked workers to name the color of ink a word is printed in. (Harder than it sounds when the word BLUE is printed in Red ink! Our tendency is to read the word, not the color it’s printed in.)

Brain health improves when air quality improves.

To put it more simply, you think better when you breathe better air.

Reason Number Two: Respiratory Health

The second reason to care about your indoor air quality is that it affects your physical health.

Poor indoor air quality happens when tiny bits of dust mites, pet dander, chemicals, smoke, dirt, and fungi circulate in the air. The poorer the air quality, the more health problems result.

You should care about your indoor air quality because it affects your eyes, nose, and throat. Poor air quality can cause eye irritation and sore throats. It can increase headaches and fatigue and dizziness.

Underlying health conditions like asthma and allergies get even worse with a decrease in air quality. Worse yet, bad indoor air quality can result in long-term effects like cancers and heart disease.

The Good News Is….

Good indoor air quality has always been important, but never more than now. With the rise of COVID and the rampant spread of the virus, air quality matters.
