How to Improve Bedroom Hygiene and Boost Your Immune System
13 Mar 2020 1 Min Read by Lucid

As the spread of the COVID-19 virus floods the headlines, we thought it could be beneficial to share some precautions you and your family can implement in your bedrooms to help promote good health.



Practicing good bedroom hygiene can help keep the disease from infiltrating your most sacred of spaces.

Simple tips you can implement:

  • Regularly washing your sheets and bedding is recommended all year long, but it is especially important to help prevent you from coming in contact with unwanted germs.
  • Be sure to wash your hands and even change out of your work clothes before lying in bed to keep your sanctuary free from whatever germs your clothes potentially encountered.
  • A quality mattress protector will help keep your mattress fresh and free from the grease and grime that we pour into our beds over the years.


Our immune system is a complex network that protects the body from infection. Factors like stress, sleep, diet, and exercise all play a role in the strength of our immune response.

Getting proper sleep can help boost your body’s immune system and strengthen your defenses against respiratory illness.

Sleeping less than six hours makes you much more susceptible to illness than those sleeping the prescribed seven to nine hours.

Simple tips you can implement:

  • Implement a strict bedtime window and wake up window.
  • Avoid screens of any kind before bed.
  • Avoid eating too late or exercising right before your scheduled bedtime.
  • Use mindfulness exercises to reduce stress and clear your mind.
