Is A Blocked Nose Giving You Nightmares?
A good night’s sleep is a dream come true and a bad night can turn life into a nightmare. A blocked nose during the day is annoying, but when it disrupts your sleep it has a whole bunch of nasty knock on effects.
Sleep is crucial to our physical, emotional and mental well being. When we don’t get enough it can affect moods, energy levels, concentration, memory and even our immune system.
A blocked nose is an excellent sleep-disruptor. When we sleep, our body settles into a series of routines. Breathing is one of them. When our breathing is interrupted or irregular, we can’t achieve the relaxation needed for a good night’s rest. This may result in frequent awakenings and difficulty in falling asleep. If you’re restless or snoring, you may not be the only one missing out on some quality shut eye.
Unblocking the blockade
If you have a stuffy nose, there are things to try before bedtime which may improve the chances of a good night’s rest.
2) Say “yes” to fresh air
The great weather isn’t the only reason to get outdoors. By spending more time outside, you’ll get fresh air and vitamin D from the sunshine*. Good ventilation* lessens the likelihood of getting sick too, so do plan lots of playtime in the garden during the warmer season. Just make sure you remember sunscreen and sun hats.
3) Help them eat well
Now is the perfect time for your little one to enjoy an array of fresh fruits and vegetables. If they’re slightly fussy, why not make a delicious juice or smoothie? This is a great way to sneak a few more vegetables in. Whilst your child might be taking a daily multivitamin, they should still be getting enough nutrients from the foods that they eat*.
