How Teachers Can Sleep Better, Even When You Have Allergies Like Me!

I’m prone to allergies. Living in Southern California I can predict very easily when I’m going to have allergy issues. Like clockwork, as soon as the weather goes back to nice after being rainy and overcast I am guaranteed to have a headache.

So I did a little research on how to sleep better even during allergy season. I trust this will help you as much as it did me.

1.Did you know there are some plants that naturally purify the air?

Apparently plants like aloe and English Ivy actually breathe in toxins and breathe out clean air.

How amazing is that?!

If you aren’t the plant buying type consider getting an air purifier. Run it at night while you sleep. That way when you wake up in the morning you don’t have a nose full of allergens.

2. Wash Your Sheets Every 10-14 Days

There are all sorts of completely gross things hanging out on your bed sheets. Things like dust, pollen, hair, dead skin cells, and more.

Washing your sheets regularly can keep this ‘collection of grossness’ to a minimum and give you a better night’s sleep.

3. Close your windows in the morning

Pollen is the strongest between 5am and 10am. By leaving your doors and windows shut during the first part of the day, you can cut down on the amount of pollen inside your house.

4. Take a hot shower, at night

Open up those nasal passages before going to bed with a nice hot shower.

For bonus points, add some eucalyptus oil to your bath mitt or another washing device. This natural oil is also great for opening up your nasal passages for better breath.

I feel like a doctor or something after writing this.

But anyway, hopefully, this will give you a little better night’s rest. Cheers!
