Air exchange is an important hygienic requirement for the room in which we sleep. Air exchange in the bedroom is carried out using various methods and devices. The simplest and most affordable for everyone is airing.
Ventilation – removing polluted air and replacing it with clean air. Modern industry currently offers a wide range of ventilation systems, in other words, air conditioners. But ventilation is the simplest and most natural means of air exchange in our rooms. Airing is carried out through vents and windows and transoms. Good air exchange is achieved by through ventilation. In the cold season, we ventilate the bedroom in the absence of people.
A jet of fresh air will not only not harm your sleep, but will also help to strengthen it. A person who is constantly in a warm room is usually pale and has poor sleep. Dry and hot air dries moisture in the nose and contributes to inflammation of the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract. This is troublesome during sleep. You also need to give up indoor plants in the bedroom. On hot summer days, you can use a regular fan, the uniform sound of which also helps you fall asleep quickly.
Naturally, you sleep much better in the fresh air. It is enough to sleep 5 or 6 hours outside the city, and this will be equivalent to 9-10 hours of sleep in an urban setting. This is due to the fact that while sleeping in the open air, the sleeper receives signals from numerous receptors: “Everything is fine, life support is normal.” There is no hypoxia (oxygen starvation), which helps to restore the normal rhythm of rest and wakefulness, eliminate cardiac disorders and get rid of insomnia.
Therefore, during sleep, it is necessary to leave the windows open, the ideal temperature for a bedroom is 16-17 degrees. Don’t forget to take cover, and in winter you even need to wear warm socks.
Remember the golden rule: “Keep your head cold and your feet warm.”
