We all know and love the major holidays that are celebrated in the United States– we usually get a day off work, we get to enjoy holiday festivities, and the overall feel to the holiday gives us the “warm and fuzzies”. Still, there are plenty of lesser known celebrations that go on throughout the year that we may not regularly observe. This year, try to celebrate some of these off the wall holidays in your apartment!
Many of these holidays are about your health or your environment. For example, February is National Care About Your Indoor Air Month. Your indoor air quality actually has major effects on your health, so it’s something important to think about. Here are a few ideas on how to improve the indoor air quality in your apartment:
- Vacuum and dust regularly to keep dust, pet hair, and other contaminates out of the air and out of your lungs.
- Open the windows every once in a while. Letting fresh air into your space helps to keep the air fresh and clean, as well as adding a rejuvenated feel to your apartment.
- Add some greenery and some fresh air assistance to your apartment with air purifying plants. Some help more than others, so Apartment Therapy compiled a great list of perfect additions for your TriBridge apartment.
- Make sure that maintenance regularly changes the air filters in your apartment.
