There’s something about the new year that has everyone feeling reflective about their health habits. Resolutions are made to spend more time at the gym, eat more sensibily and prioritise much-needed downtime. Something that can be added to that list of life areas to transform for 2023 is our home environment which can have as much (if not more) of an impact on our health as these seemingly more obvious resolutions.
“Housing and built environments have a profound impact on human health. In developed countries, 80‐90% of the day is spent in built environments and most of this is in the home,” a World Health Organisation housing report suggests.
