Getting a good night’s rest in your Annapolis, Maryland, home is crucial to health and happiness. If you find that you don’t sleep well, it could be because of low humidity in your home. There are many ways that adding a humidifier to your home can help improve your rest.
Humidity Can Loosen Congestion
When the air is too dry in your home, it can cause mucus to become very thick and dry. As a result, it’ll make you feel congested.
This dryness can also cause your nasal passages to become clogged, leading to a stuffy nose, sinus pressure and a sore throat. A humidifier will add moisture back into the air and break built-up phlegm up. As a result, it’ll help you breathe easier and sleep through the night.
Moisture Can Improve Dry Skin
When the air is dry, your skin can become drier, resulting in itching and cracking. Dry skin can also lead to worsening dandruff and an itchy scalp. A humidifier will add more moisture to the air, preventing dry, rough skin and the itchiness that can keep you awake.
Improved Resistance to Illness
The flu virus in particular tends to thrive in dry environments. It has a harder time spreading when the air is moist.
Using a humidifier can slow the spread of these germs while you sleep. As a result, it’ll reduce your odds of contracting the flu. Using a humidifier can also improve cold and flu symptoms when you’re ill, allowing you to get over your illness more quickly.
Improvement of Allergy Symptoms
Asthma and allergy symptoms can also worsen when the air is dry. With a humidifier, your nasal passages will be clearer when you sleep, allowing your body to filter out the various allergens that can trigger symptoms.
