A happier, healthier winter: tips for hunkering down this season
It starts with home.
“Make your home as appealing as you can. To the extent possible, now is a good time to get your home ready for the winter.” In regards to winter, Fast Company quoted Tyler Arvig, Associate Medical Director for R3 Continuum, a behavioral health and security solutions firm. But what does getting your home ready look like? Here are a few key tips that may help you stay happy through a long winter.
With the windows closed, clean indoor air becomes extra important.
We don’t have to tell you about the dangers of breathing air pollution. EPA studies in the U.S. have found that indoor air pollutants were generally two to five times greater than outdoor pollution levels (and in some cases, 100 times greater!). The industrial strength engineering of Airmega could be exactly what your home needs. With an Auto Mode that measures your air quality in real time and filter indicator lights, Airmega keeps your air clean without you having to think about it. Learn more here.
Turn your bathroom into a more spa-like experience.
What could be a better escape from the chill of winter than a day at the spa? Upgrade your bathroom to a home bathroom spa. Light candles or a fresh aroma that makes you feel relaxed, and keep your bathroom space shiny and clean, with fresh linens and soaps—anything that makes you smile—out on the countertops. To really make the experience come alive, consider an advanced bidet toilet seat like Bidetmega. WIth customizable water pressure and temperature, you always come away feeling refreshed and clean.

Be sure to have plenty of clean water
Staying in more doesn’t mean we give up keeping our bodies and immune systems strong. Hydration is one of the most important factors for our wellness. But why buy all that water in wasteful, plastic bottles or jugs? You can create unlimited fresh, clean water with an at-home purifier like an advanced Aquamega, which you can learn more about here.
Find and keep support.
Kathrin Mallot, who spent one very long, very cold winter at the South Pole had some advice: It’s most important to stay in touch with those that keep us sane and balanced. Many professionals have suggested that limiting your exposure to the news and getting more time (on the phone or in person) with people who help you feel better can be all the foundation you need to get through a long winter successfully.
Enjoy every moment.
Winters are the cycle when we naturally want to hunker down, contract, and take into account the many blessings in our lives. With that perspective, it’s easy to breathe some of that fresh indoor air, take in a nice fireside cup of cocoa made with purified water, and watch the snow flurry outside the window.
1Coway air purifiers has been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S
5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
