Oscillating Fan Tip
Having a hard time sleeping with the warmer weather? With hotter nights upon us, many individuals are pulling their fans out of storage. The key to having fans work to their maximal efficiency is dependent on where you position them in the room. A fan should never be pointed directly at you, especially when you are sleeping. This could potentially cool down one side of the body faster than the other, creating imbalances and muscle tension to the joints they attach to. This could ultimately lead to muscle strains and conditions such as torticollis (wry neck).
Cool the air in the room by placing an oscillating fan in the corner of the room, opposite your bed. If you have a ceiling fan, ensure it is not positioned directly over the bed.
Have a great day,
