Many home builders are focusing on the Wellness Real Estate sector. What is “Wellness Real Estate?” The Global Wellness Institute defines it as: “ homes that are proactively designed and built to support the holistic health of their residents” (Build Well to Live Well: Wellness Lifestyle Real Estate & Communities, 2018).

The Green Building Movement began in the 1990s. Prior to this, homes were been built in such a way that reinforced a stressful, alienated, and unhappy lifestyle. Your home might even be making you sick!

There are many things you can do to improve the wellness of your home. Here are just a few tips to get started:

  1. Test your home for radon
  2. Call a mold remediator if you have serious mold issues
  3. Clean the air with a high quality air purification system
  4. Filter the water in your home
  5. Use chemical-free cleaning products
  6. Remodel with low VOC furniture and appliances
  7. Utilize renewable energy
  8. Recycle
Creating a stress-free indoor environment will have a significant impact on your overall health and wellbeing. Leaving unhealthy, bad habits behind will pave the way for a brighter, healthier future for you and your family.
