When one is indoors, people often don’t realise the amount of time one spends indoors. Whereas when you’re outdoors, your mind is very busy thinking about reaching the office on time or dropping your kid off to school, rushing to the gym, or rushing back home in the evening to see your loved ones. However, over the past two years, there have been considerable changes in the way we live and work. Hybrid working models have been more of a policy than a trend now. Today, the average person spends 90 per cent of their lives indoors — and some, such as the elderly, even more.
An increased amount of indoor life leads to a spike in the level of indoor air pollutants we are exposed to — two to five times higher than outdoor levels. Some indoor air pollutants such as mold and pollen, household products, pesticides, gases such as radon and carbon monoxide, and materials used in the building such as asbestos, formaldehyde, and lead can be 100 times more damaging than outdoor equivalents. Indoor air pollution can lead to serious short and long-term health problems. There has also been growing evidence that air pollution impacts mental health and may be a factor in conditions such as depression and bipolar disorder. It may also have a detrimental effect on children’s learning ability, patient recovery, and workforce productivity. Hence, the increase in our time spent indoors has been a concern in homes, hospitals, schools, and factories for all. It has become more essential than ever to govern our indoor environment, accept the changes, and challenges and prioritise our and loved ones’ health to lead the quality of life we deserve.
