Improving air quality
It's important to know the quality of the air that you breathe. Seasonal changes can prove problematic but there are a few things you can do to improve indoor quality, such as changing air filters, using natural cleaners, keeping pets off beds and ensuring that windows are properly sealed⁵. Deciding where to live can be a tough decision but think seriously about whether a change in location could improve your condition too⁶.
