Dealing with sleep apnea can feel tough until you do something about it! Fortunately, help is on the way in the form of sleep apnea treatment from our practice. You can also do your best to improve your situation by eliminating things that can further interrupt your breathing and by encouraging optimal breathing throughout the day and night. Not sure how to approach this? A wonderful start is making sure your bedroom is a solid-sleep oasis (and we happen to have some suggestions).
Change #1: Eliminate Scented Stuff
You might not give much thought to your scented candle, room deodorizer, incense, etc. However, if you notice that you feel a bit stuffy or sneezy in your room, these products can contribute to congestion (particularly for allergy sufferers), which is not helpful for sleep apnea (nor does it help your sleep apnea treatment). Clear it out, so you can enjoy better breathing.
Change #2: Get Serious About Cleaning
It’s easy to overlook the dust bunnies beneath your bed, the dust on the curtains, etc. Unfortunately, for sensitive individuals, this is the stuff that upper respiratory problems are made of! If you think this could contribute to nightly congestion, which isn’t helpful to sleep apnea treatment, improve results by getting serious about keeping dust away.
Change #3: Seek Out Hypoallergenic Details
Keep a hypoallergenic bedroom and you can be sure you’re not doing anything to make nightly breathing issues any worse. Choose hypoallergenic pillows, bedding made to keep mites away, add an air purifier to your room, and you might want to ditch the throw rugs (if possible).
