Growing up, I was the worst when it came to listening to my parent's 'cliches'. I'd go without socks, leave my sweater at home, walk to the bus with wet hair in the Winter, and leave the windows open all night. It's not that I enjoyed being sick, though my mother treated me like a princess when I was- I was just stubborn. I still do it, though there is no one to hand deliver a Slurpee and Hubba Bubba to my bedside today. Every (Southern California) Winter I'm caught off my feet for days with colds I'm certain I achieve by sitting in from of the air conditioner with dripping hair, or wandering around on cold mornings in flip flops. It's not that I think I have an immune system of steel (quite the opposite, really), it's simple laziness. Drying my hair takes time, I can never find the second shoe, and Winter coats just aren't cute enough to match my new blouse!
That being said, living in Southern California is not without it's own climate perils. At the end of every Fall, and through Winter, we have very dry and warm winds called the Santa Ana's. While these winds can surface any time of the year, it's the cooler portions which can pose the biggest threat to unsuspecting sinus' and people with weak immune systems. Just a few weeks back I remember turning to Jay and confessing I was concerned over the number of bloody noses I'd been experiencing that week. The air had gone from cold and humid to very dry and warm almost overnight. The poor blood vessels in my nose didn't know what to do, and I was left sore and puffy, reaching for nasal sprays.
It was around that time I decided to bust out the old Spongebob humidifier and tried to acclimate our home with a healthier humidity level. Spongebob really doesn't fit our living room, okay, any of our decor, and I never knew when enough was enough. Sometimes the unit would run all day with several tank fillings, because I was simply too afraid to turn it off. And with rapid weather changes, that was certainly not good! Then we discovered the Roolen Breath, one of the world's first commercially intelligent humidifiers. It was sleek and modern in design, and incredibly easy to operate. Our days of children's humidifiers were soon far behind us.
What Daughter Says: Don't just treat your air when you're sick, maintain a healthy humidity all year round with an intelligent humidifier.
