Do you sleep in a well-ventilated room? {Health}

So, do you? This wouldn’t be obviously applicable to ones sleeping in AC but sleeping in a well-ventilated room is extremely important from the health aspect. Did you also know that you should not cover yourself in the blanket? Yup, its a bad habit.

Its always a good habit to keep the windows of your bedroom open so that there is proper air circulation. Also, whenever you are sitting at any place, it is important that the place is ventilated, not only for air but also allows sun’s rays. That ensures our well-being.
These days we are too much cooped up in the buildings as in offices and all. So, its good that we get well-ventilated houses. One of my friend’s mom used to open the windows even if he used to feel cold at night ๐Ÿ˜€ Yup, she was paranoid about his health. Not in bad sense AT ALL. 

The reason she was so concerned was because if you keep the room closed for long time, your exhaled carbon dioxide gets filled in the room reducing the levels of oxygen. Same is the case when you sleep with your face covered. It interferes with the normal breathing process. 
Another issue which might arise is the entrance of outside light when you open the windows. Yes, one should sleep in extreme dark because our body is sensitive to even a flicker of light when sleeping. So, its a good idea to get a sleeping mask on!! 
Did you know that if you do not sleep in an entirely dark room, your ageing process gets accelerated and also results in weight gain. Vivi has already done a wonderful post on this topic which I have been meaning to post since a very long time so go and check it our right away :)

      Hi Swati, thanks for your wishes. I took a sick leave from office the next day and got loads of medicines from my doc. Didnt eat half the doses (hate eating too much medicine) but am much better now :). But the window remains closed and I remain bundled up in a shawl in office.

      Sorry to hear about your friend, but I can understand why his mom opens the windows .. it is so wonderfully cool! Best advice would be to keep yourself warm no matter what!

    indeed a very nice share .

    Proper ventilation is an essential element of a good house. As we all know, air conditioning units works best in an enclosed area and if this is the case, there is poor circulation.

    Also I agree with your point that if your keep the room close for long -time the exhaled CO2 gets filled in the room and reduce the level of the oxygen which seems to be very harmful for human-body.

    thank you so much for sharing your great ideas ..
    keep up doing good work
    God Bless U !!
