With the Diwali arriving soon you can expect a lot of excitement everywhere. But one more thing that you can expect in abundance is hiked up pollution rate. Though the festival brings a lot of happiness and joy to our lives it also brings along a lot of allergies and health ailments with it. If you are someone who is very sensitive towards pollution or just want to keep yourself and your family protected from the pollution, then follow the below-mentioned tips.

1. Keep the windows closed- Anyways our environment is really very polluted and there is no shortage of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the air. To worsen the condition, the level of these harmful gasses shoots up to the sky. People with respiratory conditions often face severe issues regarding the same. Thus, it is always better to keep the window of your house as well as the car closed. Your lungs were designed to cleanse a much cleaner version of the air as compared to the present one that we are breathing.

3. Let the fresh air in- Yes I know in the first point I mentioned to keep the windows closed and now I am telling you to open them and let the fresh air in. I am asking you to do this because despite everything else you still need some fresh air in your house. The air is much cleaner during the early hours of the day and thus you can open the windows at that time. This way fresh air will circulate in the house.
