Take care of your home & work environment
What Does Your Home Reveal About Your Personality? The Way You Live is a Reflection of Who You Really Are.
Your home is your sanctuary.After a long, frenzied day at work, you want nothing more than to be welcomed and comforted by a warm, clean and tranquil place. It is our refuge away from the constant demands of others and the stress of the environment we live in. Put simply, it’s where we truly feel “at home”.
Unfortunately, in this fast-paced day and age, where everything is needed “yesterday”, it’s much too tempting to throw your clothes on the floor, kick your shoes off and toss the mail onto a growing pile of papers that you’ll deal with “later”. That’s not to mention time spent cooking, helping the kids with their homework, mowing the grass, changing the oil and a million other tasks that are demanded of you when you walk in the door.
If you continue to let things “slide”, your home begins to sink into a state of carelessness. Guests and passers-by begin to think that if the outside looks so unkempt, the inside must be just as bad, and the person who lives there must be a slob, or too lazy to care.
You Know That’s the Farthest Thing From the Truth!

If you’ve ever visited a day spa, a massage therapist or a tranquil vacation spot, then you know how easy it is to let yourself gently sink into a calm state of bliss.

Taming Health Issues in the Workplace
Does This Sound Like Your Workplace?
The guy beside you just had to drag himself in today. He’s got a bad case of the flu and apparently can’t wait to share it with everyone else. He can’t stop sneezing and coughing. The woman on the other side of you is a smoker. The scent of stale, smoke-infested air hovers over you, making your eyes water and your lungs heave.
You get up and slog yourself to the water cooler and pour yourself a cup of stale water. Your head is throbbing, your ears are ringing and you’re still feeling the remnants of a caffeine high after grabbing a donut and coffee this morning. You look up at the clock. 9:15am. Minutes feel like hours. Hours feel like days.
Our workplace is one of the few places where we feel as if we have the least amount of control over our environment. Whether you’re slumped over a desk, staring at a computer screen or mindlessly piecing together components in an assembly line reeking of pollutants like lead and silica dust, your health is affected in more ways than you know.
One of the best ways to start making the most of your workspace is to invest in a quality air filter or air purifier. These compact sanitation systems cleanse and neutralize harmful chemicals such as smoke, germs, viruses and bacteria from the air. The result is pure, fresh and exhilaration oxygen as it should be. Whether you’re dealing with an inefficient air conditioner or a coworker who seems to be a magnet for colds, an air purifier system is one of the best investments you can make for your health.
