If you are someone for whom sleep apnea is a daily concern, our Riverside, CA team reminds you that there are multiple steps you can take that happen to be easy and that offer true improvement for your nightly rest and sleep. Of course, you know that you should seek sleep apnea treatment from our practice, which offers you the bulk of the improvement and protection from this sleep disorder. In addition, we remind you that when you remember to keep your sleeping space in good condition, it offers some serious support! Think through some considerations!

Those Scents

We like to remind patients that when there’s a scent that bothers you, that causes you to feel more awake, or that you are actually quite sensitive to, it’s not something you want near your sleeping space. This is especially true if you’re dealing with sleep apnea! So, clear your space of perfumes, sachets, candles, room deodorizers, and more!

That Dust

You may be serious about vacuuming or mopping…or you may not. Remember that keeping dust from your space can help limit allergies and breathing concerns, so you’re not making matters worse for your sleep apnea! Make sure to launder your linens regularly, to vacuum, to mop, and to do whatever is necessary to maintain a dust-free sleeping space!

Those Noises

Our team encourages you to address any noises that are bothersome (or to wear earplugs if necessary), so you can fall asleep and remain snoozing without interruption.

That Light!

Moonlight, twinkling stars, street lights, and more can be quite romantic. That is, when you’re not dealing with sleep apnea and doing your best to promote an environment in which you can easily fall asleep (and then stay asleep). So, if there’s a lamp, light outside of your window, etc. that keeps you up or wakes you up, make changes. Add better window coverage. Turn off lights. This can help significantly!
