Wellness & Working from Home

7 Things You Can Do TODAY to Improve Well Being in Your Home Environment

We’ve been loving the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) Places Matter webcast series!  In this session, Places Matter to Prevent and Prepare, a panel of experts share valuable insights, not only about wellness strategies for WELL buildings and companies, but also for individuals as we navigate our “new normal” and look to boost our overall well being in the current work-from-home atmosphere.  Here are some highlights, which we are encouraging across our Troon Pacific team.

1. Identify Activity Zones. Take charge of your at-home routines to enhance health and well being. Keep your spaces clean, eliminate clutter, and dedicate different “zones” of your home for different daily activities. This will help establish routine and offer a change of scenery throughout the day, plus it keeps your spaces more healthy! A good example of this is separating where you work from where you eat – this helps eliminate the spread of germs on surfaces, and cues you to mentally disconnect from your workday during meals.

2. Circulate Fresh Air. Open your windows to let fresh air inside! Natural ventilation dilutes stale internal air, replacing it with cleaner outdoor air. This is especially important when many people are sharing a small space. To increase airflow, you can position a fan next to a door or window which will help boost circulation.

3. Connect to Daylight and Nature. Connection to natural elements (daylight, plants, sky) boost mood, help manage stress, and does a lot of good for our mental health.

  • Open windows and drapes to let in the maximum amount of natural light each day.
  • Set a few indoor plants where you can see them.
  • When we see wood grain, our stress levels fall, so if you have hardwood floors, this is a good time roll back your carpets and let the wood grain show!
  • Set up your workspace where you can look out a window, and see trees or sky
  • Don’t be afraid to lean on representational images of nature (ex: set a nature image for your computer’s backdrops)
  • Play nature sounds – Many experiences of nature are multisensory, so playing nature sounds (a babbling brook, singing birds) helps you feel connected to the larger world, thus providing a sense of relief. You can find nature tracks on Spotify, Pandora, or Amazon Music… basically anywhere you typically access your music.

4. Prioritize Ergonomics & Comfort. Here is a free resource that can help you set up your work environment.

  • Take advantage of opportunities for micro-breaks throughout the day, which can provide you with bursts of energy and mental recovery. Get creative!  For example, I added a fun song to my typical “work” playlist, and whenever it comes on, I get up and dance!
  • Use an independent keyboard and mouse, this allows you to raise screen of your laptop to eye level (you can use books or a box under your laptop to achieve this).
  • Ear buds / headphones allow you to take calls hands-free, so you aren’t holding your phone in awkward postures.
  • Roll a towel for lower back / lumbar area support in your working chair (…when it slips out of place, that’s probably a good sign it’s time to stand up / move).
  • If you can take a call while outside/walking, do it!

5. Manage Stress. The last few weeks, our world has been in a reactive phase, which can be neurologically disruptive – we have breakdowns, burnout, and feel emotional and overwhelmed. Challenge yourself to move into an acceptance phase, which means taking back control of the things we are empowered to change – staying focused on the things we CAN do. Build choices into your day – even the anticipation of having an upcoming choice has a positive mental effect. Keeping stress levels in check are important because lower stress supports a healthier immune system, and improves mood, energy, and our interactions with others.

  • Develop a weekly cadence of events / things to look forward to! In our house, this takes the form of Movie Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Friendship Fridays (set a phone date with a friend), and cozy Soup Sundays! Rituals support creative thinking and problem solving.
  • Set a timer for your news intake – literally! Be mindful about consumption, take control of your experiences – this can reduce stress level, and provide consistency and routine in our new lifestyle.
  • If you are feeling particularly overwhelmed by the news, turn off every notification on your phone. Choose when you engage with the your screen / the news, not when it wants to engage with you.

6. Mindful Bathroom Practices. Of course, we all know washing our hands is one of the best things we can do to protect ourselves (in addition to social distancing).  Did you know, running exhaust fans in bathrooms can also be helpful for air quality, especially because virus can be passed by fecal matter? If you don’t have a fan, at least practice closing the toilet seat to prevent unnecessary spread of bacteria.

7. Show Grace to Yourself and Others.  Be empathetic to other individuals – each person is having a unique and personal experience right now. Similarly, be gentle with yourself – don’t stack up extra high demands on you, or your to do list right now. Use the weekend to psychologically detach from work, support your loved ones, and take time for yourself and the little life moments that are still all around us.

Clean Air

Troon Pacific homes improve indoor air quality. With the help of products like Zehnder Home Ventilation Systems, our buildings maintain a continuous supply of filtered outdoor air, pushing stale air outdoors and preventing toxins from accumulating — all while expending very little energy.

Outdoor air pollution is a well-known fact of life. But air indoors can be harmful, too. Contaminants can spread into the home from outside or can originate within the home itself.

The most common source of indoor air contamination are volatile organic compounds or VOCs. These chemicals evaporate easily, and can cause respiratory irritation, dry eyes, dizziness, and nausea.

While most of these health effects are minor, some VOCs, like those most common in paints, sealants, adhesives, and other wet-applied materials, can cause more long-lasting ills.

One of the best ways to ensure good indoor air quality is to keep toxic elements from entering the home in the first place. Wherever possible, Troon Pacific builds with no- and low-VOC products.

By selecting the right materials and implementing new ventilation technology, our homeowners can breathe easily and stay healthy.

Clean Water

Tensui Water Systems
We provide homeowners with the healthiest water possible. Using an entirely natural filtration method of fine rocks and minerals, we eliminate many of the common contaminants found in household water sources.

Contaminants are rampant in the world around us. If our drinking water is not clean, we can experience adverse health effects — both mild and severe, short-term and long-term. Common impurities result from heavy metals used in industry, agricultural byproducts such as pesticides and fertilizers, and bacteria.
The WELL Building Standard has also pointed out that some municipalities treat water with chlorine or chloramine to reduce waterborne pathogens.

These chemicals can go on to form compounds which lead to cancer and other illnesses. On the other hand, some of the purest spring water contains minerals beneficial to our health. The Tensui Water Perfection System is one of the few products that takes this duality into account, removing chemical contaminants while enriching water with beneficial elements.
Several of our most recent projects include Tensui systems, ensuring that homeowners are drinking, cooking with, and bathing in water that’s optimized for the needs of their bodies.

Chemical Free Living

Insulation materials treated with harmful, chemically treated flame retardants surround us. But they often go unnoticed.

Troon Pacific is committed to using natural insulation materials — like cellulose, mineral wool, silica, cork, and agrifiber — wherever possible to mitigate the adverse effects of chemicals in the home.

The Green Science Policy Institute has assembled a chart listing flame retardant-free building insulation. Guides like this one help us to use only the healthiest materials in our homes.

Chemical flame retardants are present insulation materials and wallcoverings, as well as some furniture and textiles. Halogenated flame retardants are listed as one of the Green Science Policy Institute’s six classes of chemicals of concern and are on the Living Future Institute’s Red List. We use this list as a guide in avoiding harmful chemicals in our homes.

Troon Pacific uses natural products in order to keep synthetic and other chemical insulators out of our homes, giving families a better shot at breathing clean air.

Healthy Materials

A healthy home begins with healthy materials. Troon Pacific has taken a leading role in using building materials free of harmful components to keep our homeowners breathing easy.

As part of our wellness-centered mission, we make it a priority to find sustainable, health-oriented alternatives to materials other builders don’t think twice about. We’ve looked to the transparency and labeling system Declare, a project of the International Living Future Institute, which aims to create nutrition-like “ingredients” labels on consumer goods, ensuring individuals that they’re surrounding themselves with materials they can feel good about.

Troon Pacific has partnered with Moore & Giles to create the world’s first Declare-labeled, Red List-free, and Cradle to Cradle–certified leather. This new product swaps a typically highly toxic treating process for a wholly organic and biodegradable one that uses only olive leaves and beeswax.

 

We also use USG EcoSmart Panels instead of standard drywall. This interior cladding is made up of up to 95% post-consumer recycled content, and uses 40% less water and 25% less material than its conventional counterparts. Red List–compliant, it enhances indoor air quality while minimizing environmental impact.

Wet-applied materials often contain harmful VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, contributing to adverse health effects. Wherever possible, Troon Pacific works with manufacturers who have already received Declare labels, like ECOS and Benjamin Moore, whose stains, varnishes, and paints include organic, zero-VOC options.

Partnering with organizations and manufacturers that lead the way in the realm of material transparency, Troon Pacific is proud to design and build homes that guarantee a quality indoor environment for their occupants.
