Do our homes aerate themselves, or do we keep breathing the same stale air over and over?
I have 6-7 plants that are supposed to generate oxygen during night, but I am assuming our homes are not air-sealed and I hope there is some exchange is happening here and there.
Otherwise, it would mean that in the last 50 hours or so, I have just breathed the same air because since Friday evening I have not left my home!!!
I do not know how that happened! Even in snow days I would get out of home, even for a short time.
I am surprised.
I know I was supposed to get out and shop on Saturday, but it was heavily raining that day. So I stayed in, cleaned the house, did the laundry. Okay….
Why did I not get out today?
I do not know.. But what I know is that this is possibly the first time in the last handful decades that I have stayed in for two days straight.
I hope I will not do this again – it does not feel right.
Time to start my weekend breakfast at the nearby cafe again – they almost motivated me to get out and made me enjoy my day right away….. I missed the smell of the coffee and the taste of the bagel….. I missed carrying the cup out with me and drinking it while walking…. I missed feeling the fresh air on my cheeks and nostrils… I missed being with the life that is happening outside.
Lessons learnt and over.
