Open your windows and let the fresh air in!
High oxygen levels increase the efficiency of almost all the reactions in your body. From losing weight to sleeping better at night, fresh air is a key component. High oxygen levels in the body have also been linked to decreasing cancer growth and preventing cancers all together. Our skin benefits, our lungs benefit, and due to so many reactions that depend on oxygen, every system in your body benefits!
Indoor air and outdoor air both contain oxygen naturally, but the quality is not the same. Some people say that they don’t want to go outdoors or open their windows in the home out of fear of the pollution outdoors.
However, unless you live next to some combustion factory or it is a high alert smog day, I can assure you that the air outdoors is almost always better than that indoors. The reason for that is the concentration and dilution effects. Outdoors, there is a better dilution effect as more fresh air is available and thus the concentration of pollutants tends to be lower. Indoors, especially the air-tight way that most homes are built today, there is a higher ratio of pollutants to fresh air, and thus the air in your home is not high quality, unless it is regularly exchanged.
Open Your Windows. It is really that simple and free, and yet so few of us do this.
