If you’re a Michigander, you’re probably already aware that our bountiful vegetation and numerous forests create an abundance of allergens like cottonwood and ragweed, which makes it nearly impossible to avoid peak allergy seasons. Here’s some surprising statistics on just how many of us are affected by allergy symptoms…
- 67% – Americans reporting “poor” or “only fair” health status, due to lack of sleep
- 33% – Americans reporting compromised sleep due to allergy symptoms
- 42% – Americans reporting waking-up with allergy-like symptoms
With a growing body of science around the importance of sleep, Americans everywhere are seeking ways to improve their sleep routines – often referred to as “sleep hygiene.” Here are some quick tips from health and wellness expert Stephanie Popso for better sleep hygiene…
1.) Stick to a consistent sleep schedule to regulate your body and health
2.) Limit nighttime stimulants (like electronics) 1-hour before bed.
3.) Wash bed linens in hot water weekly.
4.) Use zippered allergen-barrier mattress protector…like AllerEase Maximum.
5.) Shower at night, versus the morning, to rinse off pollutants.
6.) Invest in an air purifier or plant (like Ivy or Palm) to rid indoor pollutants.
7.) Limit pet time in the bedroom or use allergen barrier bedding.
