4 Ways To Design An Environmentally Friendly Home

4 Ways To Design An Environmentally Friendly Home

Fresh air, clean water, and perfect weather are what all of us living on planet earth crave. We look forward to summer, to stepping on beaches with crystal clear blue waters, and we love the feeling of warm wind. The ability to enjoy nature, clean and pure, constitutes the vision of paradise that most of us have.

However, this won’t be possible if the planet continues toward global warming and our bodies of water continuously fill with plastic and waste products due to our ignorance and neglect. We need to form a global community of people who care about the environment. To care for the environment begins at home. Here are four ways we can all be more aware of Mother Nature and help make the world a better place right from the comfort of our own homes.

1. Choose products that encompass style and integrity.

    Style is an important factor in our lives. So is being socially conscious. It’s why Kylie Jenner’s lipsticks are vegan. We need to carry along this stream of consciousness when it comes to decorating our homes.

    Our home is a place where we experience a full range of emotions and what life has to offer. It’s where one’s day begins and ends. That’s why most people want their home to suit their personal style. Many products on the market these days encompass style but lack integrity and care for the environment. This is where taking the time to research environmentally friendly products can make all the difference in the world.

    You don’t necessarily have to be as environmentally thoughtful as one man in Thailand who built his home using natural materials, but we all need to start somewhere. Of course, the commitment to respecting Mother Nature also has to be evident in the corporate world if we as global citizens are to make any significant progress.

    2. Incorporate pleasure and functionality.

      After a long week, all you want to do is to have a small gathering with a group of friends. Drinking beers, sipping wine, and dancing the night away with great music is always a great time. However, the era of socializing with no boundaries has long gone, we now live in the era of modern consideration. One of these considerations is noise.

      These days, soundproofing allows people to have fun while at the same time encouraging the avoidance of noise pollution. Echo panels have become one of the great ways to reduce noise pollution. Some companies even produce these panels by recycling plastic bottles. There really is no better way to own being socially and environmentally responsible than recycling harmful plastic materials into something that’ll keep the neighbors from shutting down the good times.

      3. Make DIY your best friend.

        Creativity has now made a comeback. Many individuals are now looking forward to following their passions and using their talents to create change in the world. In architecture, you learn many ways to produce eco-friendly malleable creations. However, you don’t need to be an architect to DIY your home decor whilst being eco-friendly.

        A community that practices zero waste has recently emerged, and many of us are astonished by the concept. People who commit to zero waste production also commit to the DIY way of getting things done. From creating curtains out of nylon waste to making pottery out of glass bottles, you can find everything you need on YouTube and the Zero Waste community forum. Using a DIY approach, you will not only save the planet but also have a unique style for your unique personality .

        4. Opt for a zen environment.

          A healthy mind equates to a healthy body and soul. Nowadays, what’s trendy in home decor is a more natural, monotone, and calm environment that offsets the busyness and the hustle of the city. An environment where nature becomes the priority and balanced elements become the key materials used to enhance the beauty of the home are key.

          Some societies believe that bamboo wood is crucial to the Feng Shui of a home. Bamboo is one of nature’s wonders. It offers longevity and strength that other natural materials don’t. If you’ve watched many Jet Lee or Jackie Chan movies, you know that bamboo often becomes a weapon during battle. It has a level of toughness mixed with natural beauty that makes it a great fit for the home.

          Change the way you design your home and do it yourself using the four tips above. It’s the best way to guarantee a beautiful sense of home decor with a mindfulness of what’s important to our planet. These are just a handful of ideas from a mountain of possibilities to help conserve and create a safe and enduring environment for future generations to enjoy.

          10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

          10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

          Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

          1. It burns more fat.

          Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

          2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

          Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

          3. It saves you money.

          Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

          4. It increases your immune system.

          Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

          5. It makes you face your fears head on.

          People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

          6. You will feel better in your clothes.

          When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

          7. You will embrace vulnerability.

          When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

          8. You will show the world the real you.

          Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

          9. You will have fun.

          Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

          10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

          Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

          What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
