A Case of Pollution Inside

It is a common misconception that there is pollution outside, and we live in a safe place inside, right inside our homes. But sooner or later, the same is proven to be wrong. The truth is that we are never really far away from pollution, which always finds a way. But we rarely find people taking the necessary steps to minimize the effects of indoor pollution. It is more because of the lack of awareness rather than anything else. Living in apartments and houses or villas with so much less space around, we are restricted to a concrete jungle unlike the world the older generation was familiar with.

All these dust particles which accumulate, are the first among them. There is the presence of a lot of dust, right on the keyboard and screen of our laptops, and we see some of them even on our mobile screens. So, it is essential for us to keep them clean all the time. One can be pretty sure that these trouble a good amount of people among the population of India. With the use of air conditioners not that common, such dust getting inside won’t be that difficult. It is common for people to feel that a little bit of dust is no problem, but in the longer the run, there will be trouble on the way.

The walls which are freshly painted can also bring some terrible air, which is one of the reasons why people stay away when the house is being painted. The smell of paint can be irritating for most people, and the intensity decides how bad the same is. The same can happen after some cleaning agent is used in a room. The place has to be kept open for air circulation, or otherwise, it will prove to be very unhealthy. There are people who are rather too lazy that they can’t resist the temptation to close the doors and windows early as usual, but ventilating the place well enough is a necessity.

Then there is smoke, and a cigarette is the biggest troublemaker in many houses. The smoke left by the same will remain in the air for quite some time, as we might have come across them at some point of our life, even if us, or the people close to us don’t really smoke. Passive smoking or second-hand smoke is also terrible enough for people, and have lead to the ban for smoking in so public places. There might be not many things more severe than having someone smoke inside your house, and appropriate measures are not taken to get rid of the smoke. It is more like a terrible curse to the air quality.

From cancer and heart diseases to lung problems and mental health related troubles, passive smoking is not that far away from causing the same ill-effects that active smoking do. It is even worse in the case of children. We can be sure that these won’t be the end either. Even the smoke from candles and incense sticks might be able to cause trouble for some people – well, gods and powercuts require these two even now, and so it will be even more difficult to get rid of them. But we have the alternatives in electronics with candles working with battery and a bulb inside, and those emergency lights are always useful.

The air pollution can also be from your own kitchen, which uses the gas stoves without proper ventilation. It is often considered to be a rather ineffective or weak kind of air pollutant, but the same can rise further above what one expects about it. When you look at them, most of the heating equipment can be responsible for the same. We are often caught in the end results of the same, which would feel so good, that we miss out on what comes before the final destination. The key to keeping the air pollution low, is once again having a proper ventilation, which helps.

These are just some of those few things about air pollution inside, which goes stronger than the same outside on many occasions. People need to be aware about this, sooner or later. It is here that Royal Atmos comes into the picture, as the paint that successfully reduces the harmful air pollutants by a margin and keeps the air cleaner. It is also known to absorb different types of foul smells and make the air fresher to breathe inside the house. You will find that the paint not only appears good, but also makes one feel better with the air quality inside.

Health, Wealth and Strength

What a lot of people are worried about might be wealth, but what should bother them more is the concern about the health. There are surely a need to find the health, before we miss out on the same completely. Living in a busy world, it is really difficult to maintain one’s health, as there is rarely any time left for the same. Even when we have a holiday or two, there is always something else that comes to take away our time. Therefore, it is necessary that we come up with some idea to keep our life healthy, while not giving up on other things around us.

The one thing that I did without second thought is to keep bring vegetarian. It has surely helped to keep things in control. It made sure that I lost about eleven to fourteen kilograms of weight in a short period. There is something else that comes with being a vegetarian, and it is that we end up eating less. The fact that we eat more than we need is one of the reasons why we turn unhealthy. We think that we need more food, but the truth is that we don’t need that much, and this feeling that we need to have more and more is because it is the kind of food that we really love to have.

Well, this one stretches when there is the need, why don’t you?

Some regular exercise has always helped me too, especially with some badminton, and as long as we take every shot seriously, and play hard to earn every point, there is a lot of effort there, which will make sure that we don’t gain that much of weight. There might be other sports, but badminton becomes the easier and the most obvious choice as there is only need of two people, and less space. During those days when I used to have a lot of food, it was badminton that had kept me in shape – nowadays, it is the one thing that I miss the most and wish to get back to playing.

Doing some exercise at the same time as doing something else will also help the cause by saving some time too. I used to do some simple exercises while watching television, or some video on the laptop. It makes sure that no time is wasted in the name of exercise when we are struggling to keep things going due to the lack of time. Well, who has time these days – one has to wonder. Everyone is busy, and we wonder if some time later, people will just stop talking, and at some point will cease to recognize us, as we, our friends and relatives rarely meet.

An early walk or jogging can make sure that some of the health is regained or retained too. I used to walk a lot during my college days, as it also provided a certain chance of some exploration. If we have a large college campus, students and teachers do have that option easily, and we can always walk around the house, or apartments, and see the gardens or the surroundings, as well as talk to people. Having someone from the neighbourhood to keep talking while doing the same, will also be helpful. We see people taking that early morning walk together all the time.

There is one thing that we can avoid for sure, and it is to keep sitting at a place for a long time – it is quite common these days as people have to work in front of a computer the whole day. It is more or less sacrificing health when you look at it. Maybe, wealth seems to be more significant than health for many, but the question remains about where it would lead them. One would wonder what can happen without health, even if there is wealth. The loss of health in the name of earning money is not something positive, and it doesn’t matter what people say about earning more.

This one declares Badminton as her favourite sport! ūüėõ

It is also the same reason why I left my job. My health was on the decline due to a job which had me sitting in front of a computer for the whole day. I finally decided to leave that job which had me stuck up on the same seat for the whole day including Saturdays and most of the public holidays. Now, I do feel better, both with my physical health as well as mental health. Maybe, I should have cared about my health much earlier. But it is better late than never, and hope everyone realizes the same soon enough too.

I am joining Saffola #ApneTareekeSeHealthy initiative and sharing my ways of being healthy in association with BlogAdda.

Where Monsters Thrived

You might have heard about the name Bhoothathankettu – meaning the fort of monsters, and also having a legend regarding the same. I had already written about this beautiful place, but with a newer visit, and so many changes being occurred at the place, another post became a necessity, just like my recent posts about Paniyeli Poru and Ezhattumugham. The place is just eleven kilometres from its nearest town Kothamangalam, and can be grouped with the journeys to Thattekkad, Urulanthanni, Pooyamkutty and Idamalayar. Twenty two kilometres from Muvattupuzha, twenty six kilometres from Perumbavoor and around forty something kilometres from Aluva, Angamaly, Thodupuzha and the Cochin Airport, this place is one of the more easily accessible places of serenity. Even from Cochin city, the distance is just above fifty kilometres, and so, you can meet these monsters without that much of a trouble. These are the newer pictures taken by me on my Asus Zenfone; hope you like them!
