I moved from Guam to California in 1998 and to this day, still haven’t gotten used to the dry air especially at night when I sleep. I’ve have pretty bad allergies and the dryness of the air makes it very difficult to sleep several nights which makes me wake up feeling tired. Now that it’s winter, this is when things get really bad. Allergies act up and skin gets really dry especially with the heater being on to stay warm.
I finally got around to getting a humidifier and chose something small to start out with and boy what a huge difference it made! I slept for 9 hours straight without needing to wake up with a clogged nose and my skin isn’t as dry when I’m at home! I bought the Holmes Ultrasonic Teapot Humidifier for $29.99 and it’s perfect for nightstands in the bedroom or in a small office. I’m thinking of getting one more for my home office (so I don’t have to switch back and forth with the bedroom), and one for my office at work. I may even invest in a much larger humidifier for the living room. Highly recommended! Totally improved my life!
