DID YOU KNOW….

A well-ventilated room led to a better night’s sleep for 17 participants in a Dutch study.  Over five nights, the subjects slept with windows and bedroom doors either shut or open.  After checking sleep sensors and volunteers’ questionnaires and diaries, researchers found that ventilation was associated with deeper, longer sleep and fewer wake-ups.  Fresh air may help by improving overall air quality in a bedroom.
