Time is precious, and with each tick of the clock, another moment moves on. With only so many hours each day, about a third of that is spent in your bedroom. Between sleeping and relaxation, it is important to keep your atmosphere clean to promote a healthier home. Here are a few reasons why having an air purifier in your room can set a healthy precedent for the day ahead.
Sleep is a time for you to rejuvenate your body and reset your system for the next day. However, as you lie in bed, you are at the mercy of the elements around you. As you toss and turn at night, the air quality in your room drops. Your body heat and movement cause air pollutants and dust to disperse into the air and can have an adverse effect on your health. Also, if you sleep with your windows and door shut, ventilation in your room cuts off and your air cannot filter properly. This problem is magnified at night, because when sun goes down and the temperature drops, the atmosphere traps CO₂, car emissions, and other pollutants into the ground which can get stuck in your home.
All these factors can negatively affect your sleep patterns, causing symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, shortness of breath, skin rashes, and headaches. If your sleep is compromised, your next day will be too.
A simple and effective fix to improve your sleeping conditions is to add an air purifier to your bedtime routine. On top of adding white noise that can help you fall asleep quickly, an air purifier cleans your bedroom air and reduces nighttime complications.
Air purifiers have been proven to contribute to better breathing by reducing airborne pollutants. Smoke and odors from cooking, candles, and fireplaces can linger in the air, and pollutants from other rooms or apartments can make their way into your bedroom. Allergens also spread throughout the air when you’re in bed, triggering sinusitis, breathing troubles, and even skin irritations. Congestion caused by these allergens can lead to snoring, which can affect your sleep quality. Adding an air purifier to your room can help reduce snoring and itchiness for a restful sleep, just make sure the fan isn’t directly blowing at you.
Take your sleep to the next level using the Levoit Vital 200S Smart True HEPA Air Purifier’s Smart Sleep Auto Mode. When using this mode, your air purifier will automatically adjust the fan speed to keep noise levels at a minimum, all while creating a cleaner bedroom atmosphere.
A reported 40% of Americans say they don’t feel refreshed when they wake up, a silent number that can have a large impact on society. Sleep deficiencies can interfere with social functioning and lead to chronic health problems, including heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure. Lack of sleep also affects your hormone productions and can stunt development in children and teens.
Sleep is essential to your everyday functions and influences your daily cognitive tasks. It is important to take the necessary steps to ensure your sleep is undisturbed. Adding an air purifier to your bedroom can help to efficiently purify your space, effectively reducing obstacles to a good night’s rest. With Auto Mode, smart features, and more, let the Levoit Vital 200S guide you to a healthier night for a happier tomorrow.
