Many people who suffer from environmental allergies suffer from poor sleep as well.

Allergen voidance measures are key, such as keeping the windows closed in the home at all times. This will prevent the pollens from entering the bedroom.

If there are pets in the home, keeping the pets strictly outside the bedroom is important, since they may have brought pollens from the outdoors into your home.

Also, taking your medications at night can be useful. Such as using nasal sinus rinses to help wash out the nasal passages from the pollens you may have inhaled during the day. You can follow this by using nasal sprays to decrease nasal inflammation.
