Sustainable Homes and Sustainable Bodies

It feels as though we are inundated with calls for world preservation and campaigning for change in how we look after the earth. These are important matters no doubt but in the quest for sustainable living have we neglected the importance of sustainable bodies? Making the planet a more eco-friendly environment should be on the forefront of everyone’s minds of course however, not at the expense of our personal health. Your own well-being should be a priority and if you can match a sustainable lifestyle in your sustainable home then you will be on the right path to achieving a sustainable body.

Incorporating Green Spaces into Sustainable Living

For those living in cities, how can they satisfy the drive for greenery in a way that’s beneficial for both ourselves and the environment? Covid-19 has awakened the need to have a small terrace, a small garden for many. Somewhere we can take in some air for at least a few minutes a day. Of course this isn’t feasible for all but there are other alternatives. 

The trend for house plants and a renewed pull towards other forms of greenery in the home, such as living walls and planters filled with fruits and vegetables has risen as a genuine green option. This kind of local, small-scale greenery has multiple advantages, not least that this is something homeowners can implement themselves.

Arguably the most obvious benefit of living in green spaces is the fact that they also function as venues for physical activities. Whether you’re into running, meditation, sports, or even martial arts, well-maintained environmental areas in urban locations serve as great places for you to breathe, stretch your muscles, and perform your fitness regime of choice. So by incorporating green spaces into home living can reap mental health rewards as well as bring significant environmental benefits.

Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies

For us to truly look after our planet, we must first be able to take care of ourselves. Diet, exercise and a reliable work-life balance are the ideal combination to achieve this and keep both our bodies and minds ticking over. Over-exerting or neglecting just one of these core areas of physical and mental existence can lead to the decline of our current health status. Without the appropriate attention on each of these key areas being sustained we will inevitably deteriorate and this can have a damaging effect on the other elements mentioned, dragging them down in the process as part of an unwanted snowball effect. Completing an online nutrition certification is a great way of keeping on top of things.

Design Your Sustainable Home and Adopt Eco-Practices

Self build homes come in all manner of shapes, sizes and specifications. This is because they have been designed and built to meet the individual needs and tastes of those who live in them. It is difficult for prospective self builders to get a handle on what kind of home they could build on their budget due to the variety and broad variance in build costs.

Large proportions of greenhouse gas emissions result from the extraction of resources, manufacturing, transport, and final disposal of goods which include consumer products and packaging, building components, and passenger vehicles, but not food. By buying used products and reselling or recycling items you no longer use, you dramatically reduce your carbon emissions from the aforementioned subjects. Wherever possible and at every opportunity choose clean alternatives to fossil fuels, such as wind, solar, geothermal, and appropriately designed hydroelectric and biomass energy projects.
