With the change of the seasons, your sleep conditions change as well. Blooming trees and beautiful flowers mean that there is pollen in the air, and all that pollen can lead to stuffy noses and swollen airways. Pollen in your bed also increases snoring and makes it hard to get a good night’s rest. Fight back with these tips and tricks to help combat allergies!
- Keep your hands away from your eyes — rubbing your eyes will only cause further irritation
- Wear sunglasses — sunglasses act as a physical barrier to stop pollen going into your eyes
- Shower before going to bed — rinse off all the pollen on you to stop it getting in your bed
- Change your bed sheets more often — most screens don’t stop pollen from getting into your house
If you have lots of sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes, try a combination of an over the counter antihistamine like Allegra and a nasal spray like Flonase. Both are good ways to help prevent allergy symptoms and help you get better sleep.
