We’ve all heard the phrase, make your bed right after you wake up in the morning to get started at forming some healthy habits. There’s even a book written on Make your bed.
And yes, making your bed right after you wake up sometimes makes you happy and helps you get a healthier night’s sleep, a study suggests. But sometimes, even the most harmless habits may have some not so harmless effects, as scientists come up with new discoveries which feel like a bucket of cold water has been poured on our heads.
Here’s something that might surprise you to hear:
You host uninvited guests right on your pillows.
Studies say that, taking time to make your bed in the morning not only does it set your mind at peace, but it makes for a nice home for dust mite, which you obviously can’t see and you think to yourself that the room is clean when it’s really not clean at all.
Your sheet does for a beautiful atmosphere for bed mites.
Bed mites love living in the dark, damp spaces of your mattress and pillows, and feeding themselves with your dead skin cells. When you get up and make your bed in the morning, you cover them up-in their ideals environment with your blanket. In the evening the whole army starts doing its dirty work. Also along with the unpleasant effects, there can be skin irritations and even acne.
Dust mites poop right on your sheets.
While feeding themselves off of your dead cells, they often leave their signature on your sheets. Yes, they do indeed poop right where you’re supposed to put your clean face. Their poop provokes a lot of allergies in humans. Some of them include having sore eyes, sneezing or even asthma.
Even if they’re dead, they’re still no good to you.
Like any living creature on Earth, bed mites have their own life cycle.But even if they’re dead,you still might inhale the remains of their dead bodies while you’re sleeping. Scientists say that this might be dangerous for people who have allergies, because inhaling these corpses may worsen their condition.
