The Ultimate Healthy Home – Part 1

I have an idea. An idea of a healthy home. A countryside house by a river, surrounded by lush greeneries. Like the soulful illustration by E. M. Wimperis, of Jane Eyre at Lowood.

Every morning, I wake up to sounds of chirping birds. Every breath I take fills my lungs with chlorophyll tinted fresh air. As I swing open the windows, I am greeted by the warm dawn sunlight. As I step outside, the cool breeze caressing my face and the soothing sound of flowing stream welcome me to a world created by God.

Coming back to reality, I will be moving into an apartment with my husband. An urban cage surrounded by concrete jungle. I will be waking up to sounds of honking cars. Every breath I take will fill my lungs with carbon monoxide polluted air. Welcome to the man-created world.

Can the healthy home concept be recreated in my apartment? How?
