Yes, today’s challenge qualifies as a chore, but it’s one that may help you sleep better at night. Break out the duster and vacuum cleaner and tackle your bedroom today. You’ll be fending off dust mites, which can cause itchyeyes, nasal congestion, and coughing that make it tough to get restful sleep. Dust mites love finding a home in your carpet, and they’re equally comfy in fabric headboards and curtains. So take some time to clear your bedroom air. If allergies are a real problem for you, consider hardwood floors and washable curtains or roller shades. And declutter your room as much as possible—it’ll make dusting less of a chore.
