Between work, school and just general living, the average person spends 90 percent of their time indoors. That said, it’s important that you feel comfortable in your home, and that you keep it clean.

On this episode of The Wellness Lab, Dr. Patel shares a few tips for amping up your living space so it can play a more dominant role in your preventative health care. From a “happy light” to an air purifier to a UV sanitizer to, yes, even live plants, these are some things that can help improve your mental and physical health at home. And there’s minimal work on your end to use any of them.
