Sleep With The Window Open

Why you should sleep with the window open for improved quality of sleep and better health

In this article I am going to explain why you should sleep with the window open for improved quality of sleep and better health.

I sleep with my door closed and my window open every night, I don’t think this has always been the case, I do recall as a kid I slept with my door and window shut.

I have noticed a big difference in the quality of sleep I get and how I feel the next morning by having my window open.

I have noticed by having fresh air during the night, I have a deeper sleep, feel cooler and wake up more alert and energetic the next morning.

If I have my window shut I don’t feel these benefits plus I sometimes get a sore throat.

I have done some research on this and I have learned that when we sleep, the body is using oxygen to detoxify us when we breathe, so we breathe in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide and toxins, so when we sleep with the window open, we allow the expelled air a chance to escape and fresh oxygen rich air to enter the room so we don’t keep breathing in the bad air.

You don’t need to have the window fully open, I personally just have it cracked open.

Where I live in Australia, the weather is always good, so in winter the coldest it might get is 0 degrees Celsius at night so I’ve never had an issue with it being too cold to keep the window open, but if you live somewhere where its way to cold or really hot overnight and you need the window shut and the air con on, I would advise that you at least keep the door open to allow access to the air from the rest of the house.

So that’s it guys, just a short but important article that you should implement from tonight to improve quality of sleep and health, just a note, with the window open sometimes the wind/air pressure makes the door bang in the hinges and its really annoying so I put a sock or something in between the door and the door frame to shut that fucker up:)

Good night!



  1. Great idea! Now that it’s starting to get warmer in the northern states I’ll be testing this out. I would love to see a post about your early morning routine, something I often struggle with.

    • Hey Kreed!
      I will write an article about my morning routine in the future but in general it goes like this.
      get at least 8 hours sleep (the less sleep you get the harder it is to wake up I find) set alarm early enough to give yourself plenty of time to get ready, get out of bed within 5 minutes, go to toilet if you need to, then go to bathroom and wash face then gargle water, then drink 1 or 2 glasses of cold water, eat breakfast and then drink a coffee, after that you can go do whatever you have to do to get ready like have a shower or whatever but the most important thing is the sleep, force yourself out of bed, wash face/gargle water, drink cold water, food, coffee. you’ll be buzzing after that! 🙂
