Exercising on a regular basis is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body. In fact, according to CBS News, exercising even for 15 minutes per day may actually help prolong your life.
However, if you regularly get your exercise outdoors, you’re likely exposed to a variety of airborne particulates that could be hazardous to your health. The same is true if you exercise in a gym, especially since oxygen breathed by all of the gym’s patrons is recycled through heating and cooling ducts.
While you may not have control over the air quality outdoors or in the gym, that doesn’t mean you just have to suffer the consequences. There are things you can do in your own home to help counteract the potentially poor air you breathe while working out.
