Allergies and Sleep

Posted by Kevin on April 26, 2013

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.
