We are now in the middle of summer (apparently), the time of year when the temperature rises (reportedly) and people are enjoying the sunshine (hopefully). However, for millions across the country, the rise in the mercury is nothing to laugh about. Especially if you suffer from hay fever, where the warmer temperature can be a source of great discomfort, instead of all fun and games.
The fact is hay fever, the most widespread allergy affecting grown-ups in the UK, can impact your life in various ways, morning, noon and night; especially considering how the condition can upset your sleeping habits. Sources say more than 50% of adult males and females struggling with an allergy like hay fever find it hard to get to sleep at night. This can affect your energy levels during the day, bring on exhaustion and diminish your cognitive abilities. Lack of sleep can also lead to stress and anxiety and contribute to depression.
However, there are steps you can take to get better sleep during hay fever season. These can involve subtle alterations in your bedtime routine which could make all the difference. For instance, it may seem fundamental, but it is recommended you try changing and washing your sheets more often. Most people only wash their bed sheets once a fortnight, but experts believe this may not be enough to eradicate the signs of allergens. If you wish to keep your sheets clear of dust or pollen, you should try cleaning them every week at a high temperature, just to be sure.
Many also feel the mattress you sleep in can play a pivotal role in alleviating the symptoms of hay fever. A conventional mattress can house literally thousands of dust mites which could aggravate allergies. However, by purchasing a high-quality mattress, you can decrease the chances of being plagued by the mites and particles, which could bring on your hay fever.
