9 Ways To Sleep Better During The Allergy Season
It may not feel like the spring season just yet, but the warmer weather can be torture for allergy sufferers. The itching, sneezing and general discomfort is endless from day till night, with a recent survey revealing around a third of allergy sufferers see their sleep affect by their symptoms. In these modern times where sleep deprivation is a rising problem, you’re guaranteed to be feeling a little worse for wear over the next couple of months.
This is why we bring to you an article over at Huffington Post, which can help you get more of the symptom free shut-eye you crave:
1. Keep Your Indoor Air Clean
Staying indoors is a great way to escape pollen. Unless the air inside your home is dirty, too — and for most of us, that’s usually the case. Household dust, pet hair and dander, and allergens tracked in from outside can contribute to allergies in the house.
2. Crank Up The Dehumidifier
Warm, moist air is a breeding ground for allergy-triggering mold, mildew, dust mites, and bacteria. According to the U.S. Enviromental Protection Agency, ideal indoor humidity is between 30 percent and 50 percent.
3. Keep Your Sheets Squeaky Clean
Washing your bed sheets regularly is key to sleeping well during allergy season, yet most people only get around to stripping the bed every 10 to 14 days. According to experts, that isn’t frequently enough to keep your sheets relatively free from the dust, pollen, dead skin, and God-knows-what-else that’s making you sneeze.
Make sure to check out the article so you can turn your bedroom into an allergen-free zone. With these top tips you’ll be able to minimize your body’s reaction to allergens and increase your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.
