Taking care of yourself should always be a priority but what if we told you that self-care done properly can also help with your surroundings? In celebration of World Health Day, which this year is centered on your planet and your health, here are five ways that you take care of yourself that also help with your environment.
Cleaning your home
Taking proper care of your environment by tidying up your home and other surroundings, leaves you living in a clean home which aids good health and also leaves no room for pollution, preserves our biosphere and endangered species which helps the environment.
Adequate and moderate use of organic deodorants.
When it comes to self care, smelling nice is definitely a priority. By moderately using organic deodorants, you smell nice which boosts your confidence, relaxes you and saves you from breathing in volatile organic compounds caused by inorganic sprays. Using organic deodorants moderately, also helps take care of the environment, as they have no harmful chemicals that can affect the environment.
Reduce, reuse and recycle. By recycling plastics and containers, you protect yourself and your environment from water and air pollution which can be caused when plastics are thrown around carelessly, or burnt. Next time you see plastic, you know what to do!
While drinking water and using it adequately for other chores is safe, wasting water can affect both you and your environment, as it leaves you with the possibility of less accessible and usable water and can also endanger other species in our environment that also make use of the water, as we are all part of one biosphere.
Choosing Good and Healthy food.
Good and healthy food in this case, means food that has been grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers and other artificial substances. These artificial substances can harm you in the long run and also cause pollution in the environment. Ensure that you are really particular about whatever goes into your mouth. Our health is one of the most important things in our lives, and so is our environment. Taking care of both is a must in order to live a long and healthy life. Happy World Health Day!
