Budding flowers, sunny days, and chirping birds, these are all signs of a beautiful spring coming. However, for a lot of people, spring brings about all sorts of allergies. Not only do seasonal allergies negatively affect you during the day but they may also make it tough for you to get a quality night’s sleep. At our mattress store in Alpharetta, we’ve seen and heard so many customers dreading the coming of spring. Therefore, we’d like to suggest a few ways to help you get a full night’s sleep despite your allergies in springtime.
Sleep doesn’t come easily at night when you have to deal with congestion, sneezing, and runny nose. These symptoms are the results of allergens irritating your nasal passage. The most prevalent allergen in springtime is pollen. If your allergy symptoms persist throughout the year, you need to look out for culprits like pet dander, mold, and dust mites. Additionally, extreme allergies can result in obstructive sleep apnea, which can be detrimental to your physical and mental health in the long term.
Allergies are frustrating, and they shouldn’t interfere with your sleep! Here are a few tips to get your night allergies under control and your sleep back on track.
It is recommended that you wash your sheets, pillowcases, and blankets weekly in water that is at least 130°F. Hot water helps remove all the common allergens, including pollen, pet dander, and dust mites. You may also want to consider investing in anti-allergy bedding. At Fred’s Beds, we offer hypoallergenic sheets that can go a long way in keeping dust mites from triggering allergy symptoms and interfering with your sleep.
According to a recent survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, 42% of pet owners allow their pets to sleep in bed with them. Much as snuggling in bed with your pets is nice and cozy, it isn’t necessarily a good idea. First of all, as previously mentioned, pet dander is among the most common allergens. Secondly, dust mites and pollen can be trapped in their fur coat, which may set off allergic rhinitis. Overall, to keep your allergic symptoms at bay during nighttime, you shouldn’t share your bed with your pets.
During springtime, as clouds of yellow pollen fill the air, they quickly collect on your hair and skin when you’re outside. Therefore, it’s important that you take a shower before bed to wash the pollen off your body and keep your bed pollen-free. Additionally, adding eucalyptus essential oil to your shower routine will help decongest your nasal and soothe your throat, hence it keeps you relaxed and well-prepared for a full night’s sleep.
At Fred’s Bed, we understand how important a good night’s sleep is, especially during this allergy season in Georgia. From hypoallergenic bamboo sheets to jersey mattress protector, we have just the things you need to ease your allergic symptoms and help you get through this allergy season well-rested.
