Allergies and Your Sleep

You know them well, whether they wake you up with a stuffy nose, headache or scratchy throat, you can detect the symptoms of allergies right as they start. Up to 40% of Americans are affected by allergies, and those with allergies are twice as likely to be affected by insomnia compared to those without. For some, the allergies can lead to snoring or sleep apnea. But don’t worry, you can do small things to prevent allergies from getting in the way of your sleep.

Talk to your doctor- This is a no brainer, but we recommend talking to your doctor about it before depending on any sleep medication for deeper sleep.

Change your laundry routine- Not only should you be washing your sheets and towels once a week, but you can start to change clothes right when you get home and wash them. This way the high pollen count from outside stays out of your sleeping area and gets clean from the wash the day of.

No pets in bed- This one can be hard for some, with your cat or dog being the comfort you need to sleep. But for those who can do it, this is a great recommendation to make your sleep less stuffy.

Clean more often- Sometimes high pollen season can be so difficult that you need to vacuum constantly, but if you clean at least 2 times a week, your allergies symptoms can improve quickly.

Get an Air Purifier- Saving the best for last, getting an air purifier can truly change your sleep game for the better. Not only do they provide white noise, but they clean your air throughout the night, leaving you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
