How Does Your Indoor Environment Affect Your Mental Health and Well-being?

August 3, 2022

Did you know that our physical and social environments – and our behaviors within them – have a greater impact on our health than our genetics and healthcare access combined?

Although we all strive to be healthy, the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink while inside, as well as how we light our spaces, can undermine our efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, when thinking about health, it is important to remember that mental health and well-being are integral to overall health. Our indoor environments can influence almost every aspect of our lives from sleep and energy levels to mood and how productive we are throughout the day. In this article, we will cover why mental health is more important than ever and explore how indoor air quality factors affects our mental health and well-being.

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of occupants. When we think about air pollution, we usually imagine the outdoor environment. However, research suggests that the concentration of toxins, allergens and other pollutants can be up to five times higher indoors than outside. Outdoor air can infiltrate indoor environments through windows, doors and HVAC systems, bringing pollutants along with it. Additionally, pollutants can be generated indoors from daily activities such as smoking, cooking, cleaning, burning candles and using personal care products.

Studies have linked exposure to poor IAQ with cognitive impairment, attention deficit, stress, and increased depression and suicidal tendency. Fortunately, research has also shown that good IAQ can help improve productivity and cognitive function.

Looking to improve your indoor air quality? ​​Delos Advanced Air Purification solutions leverage patented disinfecting filtration system (DFS) technology specifically designed to capture and reduce ultrafine particles in the air. This revolutionary technology efficiently reduces airborne microorganisms and particulate matter while prolonging filter life by inhibiting the growth of captured microorganisms.
