Air Conditioning (Summer heat wave in different parts of our world has many of us in a sweat).
Your Rx: Houseplants!
An often-overlooked cause of fatigue: indoor air pollution, which can increase when you turn on the air conditioning. The reason?
Most households don’t change the air filter often enough (at least once every three months). This allows a build-up of pollutants, which forces your heart and lungs to work harder, leaving you feeling sluggish. To improve air quality, check that your filter is clean—and add greenery to your home!
How it works: The plants’ leaves have a built-in air-filtration system that removes up to 87% of indoor air pollution. Try putting three or more in rooms where you spend the most time.
Best pollutant fighters!
