It is almost officially the fall, which means that those with fall allergies will soon be facing watery eyes and runny noses on a daily basis. Allergies are very common for Americans, and many people can relate to having their sleep ruined by allergy symptoms. Continue reading for a few tips on how to remove allergens from your mattress and bedroom to sleep comfortably through the night.
Allergies and Sleep
Almost half of seasonal allergy sufferers have problems of uninterrupted sleep, as nasal congestion puts them at risk for sleep apnea and insomnia. When you have a restless night of sleep, the next day you experience daytime fatigue, and the cycle keeps getting worse. There is, in fact, a direct relationship between allergy symptoms and sleep- as the more severe your allergies are, the worse your sleep. Also, allergy sufferers are more than twice as likely to experience insomnia than those without allergies.
Sleeping Better With Allergies
The best way to ensure you get a better night sleep during allergy season is to eliminate allergens in the bedroom. If you are allergic to pollen, dust, or pet dander, the only way to sleep better is to remove all triggers from your room and bed. Start by cleaning and filtering the air by using a high-efficiency particulate air filter. Remember to change out the filter often and clean the outside purifier. Also, vacuum your floors and furniture regularly to keep your room as allergen-free as possible.
If you sleep with the windows open, you may want to close them during allergy season. Leaving your windows open invites pollen and dust to enter your room and disrupt your much-needed sleep. If you still have problems sleeping through the night, you may want to keep all allergens out by taking off your day-time clothes before entering the room, then changing into a clean pair of pajamas.
Dust mites are drawn to our bedding and sheets, so it’s a good idea to invest in a hypoallergenic dust mite mattress cover. Find a mattress and sheets that are made of organic, naturally hypoallergenic materials, including latex or organic cotton.
