Your curtains might be making you ill and this is why

Are your curtains usually open or closed?

It’s winter time, so our curtains are closed more often than they are during summer. It creates a cosy feeling, but it also helps to keep the warmth inside the house. People whose houses can easily be looked into from the street often keep their curtains closed as well. But it turns out that this is really not that good an idea.

This is why you should keep your curtains open during the day.

Research

During winter, it’s often still dark outside when you get up in the morning and when you get back to your bedroom in the evening after a long day, it’s dark again already. For that reason, a lot of people keep the curtains in their bedroom closed all throughout the day. However, research from the University of Oregon shows that it’s much better to open your curtains in the morning.
