Five Ways to Have a Healthy Bedroom

Did you know that resting or sleeping in your bedroom can also make you sick? Yes, you read that right. Staying in your bedroom can be as worse staying in the polluted outdoors for a long time. This is specifically true when you keep in your bedroom things that cause headaches, nasal congestion or sore throat.

Wash or replace your pillows regularly. Pillows acquire bacteria, dust mites and mold spores quite easily. If you have washable pillows, wash them regularly. Change your pillow cases regularly as well. Replace them yearly of they aren't washable.

Don't share your bed with your pets. Animal fur is full of allergens like bacteria, dander, dust and pollen. These can make you sick. Sleeping  with your pets will also keep you from enjoying full 8 hours of rest. Provide them with their own beds.

Let fresh air circulate in your bedroom. It is not healthy to keep your windows shut all the time. This keeps all the allergens contained in your bedroom and ready for your lungs to inhale. When safety and clear weather allows, open your bedroom windows to allow fresh air to circulate and replace the indoor air that has been trapped in it for a long time.
