Why you should open the windows regularly

*Collaborative post.

If your kids are anything like mine then you will struggle to keep the windows open. I hide to open the windows in our house. The twins (especially my son) are so worried about flies and bugs getting in, they rather I leave the windows closed even when it is dead warm. So it is a struggle here. I like to open the windows for a minutes every day even when it is cold. I do this when I can for many reasons.

If you work from home like myself, you spend a lot of time in your house since there is no work commute or office to go to. Since I spend many hours everyday at home, I like to bring the outdoors in as much as I can to balance it out.  Doing this helps me balance my home, mind, body and bank balance.

Here is how –

 

Opening the windows helps get rid of indoor pollutants

Opening the windows regularly helps to clear the air in the house. It also helps get rid of indoor pollutants in the home. Research has shown that the air in the house contains more toxins than the outside air. The pollutants released from things like fireplaces, water heaters, gas ovens, and space heaters all get trapped in the house.

This is bad news for those of us that work from home, which is why clearing the air in the house by opening the windows and doors regularly is a must. Tilt and Turn Windows are great for getting fresh air in, as they open vertically and horizontally thanks to the brilliant turn and tilt technology. St Helens Windows is a great company to shop for Tilt and Turn Windows, and other types of quality home improvements. So go have a look on their website for all your windows, doors, conservatories and other home improvement needs.

 

The house smells a lot better when you open the windows regularly

My house smells a lot better when I open the windows for a few minutes each day. The candles and diffusers mixed with fresh air create the most amazing home fragrance. I can’t stand that stuffy stale smell that lingers in a house sometimes. The way pollutants get trapped in the house is the same way odours linger to. Which is another reason why I like to bring the fresh air in. It does wonders for the smell of my home.

Opening the windows helps my mental health

Do you know that opening the windows regularly can help with your mental health? Well if you didn’t know, now you do. It works like magic on mind. My mood instantly improves once I have the windows open for a bit. There is definitely something in the air that is good for our state of mind. Which is why being out and about helps our mental health as well as our physical health.

 

You can save money in the summer months when you open your windows

Instead of having your fans and air conditioners on in the summer, you can save money by opening the windows and leaving your blinds drawn, or curtains down. This will help you house stay cool, especially in the evenings. You won’t need to put on any cooling device, which will save you money in the bank.

Outfit Post – Loving Summer Fashion

It feels like this summer has gone on forever. I started rocking my summer pieces since April this year. The heat wave has been on and off since then and it feels like this has this has been the longest summer ever. It is definitely the longest summer I have ever experienced in the UK. I am grateful I am able to wear a lot of my summer pieces. I hear the heat wave would be on and off until October, which is great new for summer lovers. Summer fashion has been giving me life this year and I am not in a hurry for that bit to go away. I am seriously loving the summer pieces in the stores and my outfit post category on Fashion and Style Police has been very busy.

I am wearing this stunning Rose Cami Strap Maxi Dress – Serenna. This beauty landed on my doorstep some weeks ago and it has been worn twice already! I love the design of the dress a lot. And I think the colour is really pretty too! Definitely a perfect piece for a cooler summer day. It was very easy to style and dead comfy too! It is one of those pieces you throw on when you can’t be bothered to think too much about accessories, because it goes with almost everything.

This stunning maxi dress features cami straps with a bodycon fit. The flattering body hugging style is right up my street. It is definitely a season must-have!

Summer Adventures – My Son Thinks He’s Lightning McQueen

I believe schools have closed in the UK, and the summer adventures are now in full swing. The Kiddies had their end of term party yesterday and it was good fun. They enjoyed the food and the chance to play with their friends; some they may never see again. I enjoyed it too. It was a chance for me to watch them and take it all in, until the heavens opened. Of all days to rain, the rain decided to pour down yesterday and it almost messed up our garden party.

Now that the kids are home for 6 weeks and we have no holidays planned at the moment, I am looking to keep them busy as much as I can. We have a couple of days out planned for the next few weeks. And we may still go for a last minute Europe holiday break somewhere, so that is not completely ruled out.

Since I am looking to keep them busy, out and about, their bikes and scooters are going to used a lot this summer holiday. We had the pleasure of receiving some bike helmets and gloves from the lovely people at Kiddimoto the other day. The kids love their new helmets and gloves, and I love them too.

 

 

VALENTINO ROSSI BICYCLE HELMET £42

This lovely helmet is for my son. I went for the 5+ size (MEDIUM: 53-58CM (AGE 5+)) and it suits him perfectly. The design is also so colourful and beautiful. Great for the summery weather.

 

 

OFFICIALLY LICENSED EVEL KNIEVEL CHILDREN’S HELMET £42

This stunning helmet is for my daughter and she adores the striking design. I got this in the medium size as well (53-58CM – AGE 5+), and it suits her perfectly with plenty to grow into. The last thing you would need is to have your kids wear small/uncomfortable helmets while riding their bikes or scooters. Apart from it being a pain to put on, it is also not safe when it is the wrong size.

 

KIDS BLACK CYCLING GLOVES £10.50

They both got these Kiddimoto Gloves to protect their little hands while riding. The gloves helps them stay comfortable and safe while out and about on their bikes. My son thinks he is Lightning McQueen when he is on his scooter, partly because he has a Lightning McQueen Scooter. So I have to keep up with him and make sure he is well dressed for the ride.

 

What do you think of the helmets and gloves? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Have a lovely sunny day!
