SLEEP PROBLEM 2: DRY AIR
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.
