SLEEP PROB­LEM 2: DRY AIR

Malaysia Tatler Homes - - SPACES -

The up­per part of your res­pi­ra­tory sys­tem, in­clud­ing your throat and nose, is lined with moist mem­branes. These mem­branes serve to cap­ture dirt, dust, viruses and bac­te­ria be­fore they reach your lungs. When these mem­branes lose too much mois­ture to dry air, their abil­ity to cap­ture par­ti­cles be­come com­pro­mised, which could make you more sus­cep­ti­ble to catch­ing a cold. Thank­fully, we can con­trol how the hu­mid­ity level af­fects our bed­room. To en­sure the best sleep pos­si­ble, aim to keep your bed­room’s hu­mid­ity level at about 50 per cent, which may mean in­vest­ing in a hu­mid­i­fier.
