Ideal indoor humidity is good for your well-being. It helps reduce the risk of infections like the flu, bronchitis, and sinusitis, and it can help prevent nosebleeds and itchy skin when the air is dry. But can humidity help you be more productive too? Studies show that properly humidified helps increase productivity stating, “task-related performance is significantly affected by human perception of Indoor Air Quality.”
Our productivity tip this winter? Simply humidify the air!
Ways Humidity Helps Increase Productivity
Fewer Sick Days
Since viruses thrive in dry air, using a whole-home humidifier eliminates their ability to affect your family. That means you and your loved ones can enjoy a truly healthier home, which naturally contributes to clearer minds. Not to mention, healthy homes lead to healthy bodies, which means less time away from the office or the classroom.
With better health comes better sleep. This is due to your body’s ability to focus on repairing your muscles and organs rather than warding off harmful viruses due to dry air. Not to mention, the National Sleep Foundation says proper humidity moistens your airways, reducing “irritating nasal passages, stuffed noses, and cracked lips.”
Using an AprilAire whole-home humidifier to naturally lull you into a deeper sleep could contribute to increased energy and increased productivity for you and your family.
Living an overall healthy life with better sleep can naturally decrease stress in your life. Pair Healthy Humidity with routine exercise, a healthy diet, and stress-relieving techniques, like meditation or yoga, to increase productivity this winter and the rest of the year.
