8. Keeping your bed unkempt in order to get rid of allergies
Did your mom teach you to make your bed nice and neat after you wake up? Well, it’s time to forget about that and there’s a good reason for it.
When you are sleeping under a blanket, your body becomes hot and sweaty. This creates the perfect breeding ground for dust mites which are microscopic bugs that can exacerbate asthma and allergies.
Research from Kingston University has proven that the best way to get rid of dust mites is to leave your bed unmade and let it dry out. When mites are exposed to sun and air they get dehydrated and die.
