Benefits of sleeping with bedroom windows open
Whether you have the window open or closed is neither healthy nor unhealthy. This is an example of the growing misuses of the word “healthy” in exactly the same way the word “natural” has become meaningless.
Is the air in your bedroom polluted with dangerous gasses? Is the air in your bedroom more or less polluted than the outside air? Do you have a brand new home with brand new carpeting that is giving off gasses? Do you have some of that Chinese laminate flooring that is giving off formaldehyde, or Chinese drywall giving off hydrogen sulfide?
If not, then it is logical to assume that the air inside your home or apartment is perfectly safe, and if you live in the city probably much cleaner than the air outside, so there is no compelling reason to open the windows other than personal comfort and/or preference.
And, of course, getting enough quality sleep is necessary for a healthy lifestyle, but I’m not sure you can tie that to having the windows open, especially in the heat of summer or the cold of winter.
