How many times have you done a great workout, only to feel as though you can’t breathe in any fresh oxygen, congested and sniffling from allergies or overheating in a crowded room of sweating bodies? When you’ve cleared your schedule to prioritise your health and have managed to squeeze in a workout, you want to increase the benefits of this opportunity by maximising your oxygen levels, not depleting them!
We know physical fitness and working out are good for us, beyond the obvious feel-good factor and aesthetic results – the stimulus of activity kick-starts our cardiovascular system and enhances our aerobic conditioning. As we begin moving, the flow of oxygen from the outside world moves deep into the lungs, through which the process of gaseous exchange occurs and, as that oxygen-rich blood floods our bodies, we experience enhanced capability and optimal functioning.
The phenomena of breathing is our single most vital life force, yet often we allow it to occur with sub-par or even harmful interactions from our environment. What we tend to miss out on are multiple simple hacks that we can do to support our breath and fuel our healthy lifestyles to even greater capacity.
If you’re working out hard, you want your environment to be working out just as hard.
At-home workouts are steadily growing in popularity – the ease of fitting in a sweat session, or streaming a yoga class from the comfort of your living room is a trend that many time-poor but health focused individuals are picking up on. Unfortunately, most of us are working out in environments that aren’t optimal, and may actually be jeopardising our health progression. As much as we need to focus on our form and fitness, we need to focus on air purity too.
The best hack? Increase the quality of the air around you.
Recently, the World Health Organisation published a list of gases of concern that are commonly found in our homes. From formaldehyde found in the materials of our furniture and flooring to benzene which can be released from burning our favourite scented candles, these gas and pollutant particles can be as small as 0.1 micron, meaning they can travel much further into our bodies, so much so, that when inhaled they infiltrate the bloodstream.
The fix? The Dyson Pure Cool Link.
Dyson is on a mission to help purify the air around you – safeguarding your health, enhancing your fitness journey and protecting your family. And it all begins with air purity.
Not just an air cooling unit, (though this key feature can prevent you from overheating when the thermometer soars from your sweat sessions!) this intelligent, hardworking, home assistant captures up to 99.5% of harmful ultrafine particles as small as 0.1 microns. The high-efficiency HEPA carbon filter and lower face velocity enable this purifying fan to trap, and they contain, the harmful particles floating around your home. This is crucial because unlike some other purifying fans out there which initially struggle to trap the same volume of particles, there is no escaping of the particles once they are pulled in.
The freestanding, compact unit has a footprint the size of a letter so you can move freely without it impeding your activity – which means no excuses for you to skip out the burpees! There’s no fuss, no filter washing, no fiddly attachments and no drama with this stylish piece of tech – simply wipe it clean and get on with your busy life.
Smart Tech Features
But the best part? As we become increasingly obsessed with smart tech, this purifying fan automatically monitors, reacts and purifies, reporting straight to the Dyson Link app. So you can both check in on the air quality and control your purifying fan from anywhere – whether that be on your commute, from your desk at work, or even from the floor at the end of your workout! This not only ensures you can safeguard the levels of air purity in your home, but you can even control your home purifier remotely – so as soon as you step in the door you’re greeted with cool, pure air – there is no extra wastage of keeping the appliance running all day.
Regardless of our goals or stage of life, each of us can benefit from this one clever appliance. Hardworking parents whose families can be protected with clean, clear air, and whose children can learn to strive for healthier lifestyles. Health-conscious individuals keen to reduce the number of harmful particles that can become absorbed into our bodies. Even health and fitness junkies who can maximise their workout potential and accelerate their athletic progress from the simple addition of purified air and oxygen flow. We can all breathe a little easier knowing that this trusted product will back you and your family’s health and wellness endeavors.
