Are allergies disrupting your sleep? You’re not alone!
Men’s Health says that 44% of people with allergies report waking up feeling fatigued, even though they thought they got a good night’s sleep. According to allergist Dr. Jonathan Horbal, a congested nose means less oxygen to your body leading to restlessness. Try these steps to make your sleep more peaceful:
- Keep your clothes off your bed.
Pollen clings to your clothes from outside so when you get home, toss them in the laundry basket.
- Get rid of old books.
Older books get moldy. Keep them out of your bedroom.
- Freeze your pillows.
Pillows are loaded with dust mites. Put your pillow in the freezer for 12 hours every 1 to 2 weeks, the cold will kill the mites.
