Yesterday we observed the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day. Usually on Earth Day our thoughts and attention are drawn to pollution, recycling, and possibly planting, but what about inside? There is some evidence that shows indoor pollutants can be more toxic that outdoor pollutants. So, how is this effecting your sleep?
We should keep these things in mind not just on Earth Day, but all year round. Creating a more ‘green’ sleeping environment, such as washing our bedding in hot water weekly to eliminate dust mites, and using VOC free paints when painting our bedrooms, can create a more healthy sleep environment.
