How to keep your body cool while you sleep
It can be difficult to sleep when you feel overheated. According to Rise Science, when the body is experiencing REM sleep, its ability to regulate temperature is disrupted due to a delay in sweating making you more sensitive to heat. Products such as natural fiber sheets and cooling pillow cases can help keep the body cool during sleep. Let’s take a closer look at how to manage temperatures for sleeping.
Use Natural Fiber Sheets and Pillowcases
Sheets made of synthetic fibers could make sleeping an uncomfortably warm experience. Using natural fiber sheets and cooling pillow cases can help an individual keep cool during sleep. These breathable fabrics make it much easier for airflow to keep you comfortable.
Wear Loose-Fitting Pajamas or Nightgowns
Tight pajamas, especially those made with synthetic fibers, can cause you to overheat while you’re sleeping. The same is true of nightgowns. If you tend to feel too warm to sleep, switch your pajamas or nightgown to one of loose, breathable fabric in order to stay cooler. The objects that surround you in bed can either help you to feel cooler or make you warmer. Experiment with different materials to find the one that works best for you. Sustainable and natural fibers are typically the best bet for anyone who struggles with overheating at night and wants to feel cooler while they sleep.
Keep a Glass of Cold Water by Your Bed
When you drink a small glass of ice water before bed, your core temperature will be lowered. And, by keeping a glass near your bed, you’ll be able to adjust your core temperature when you get too warm during the night. No one wants to miss precious hours of sleep due to the tossing and turning that comes with overheating. These easy steps can help minimize overheating while making you feel more comfortable. A few sips of cold water may be just what you need to cool down and get back to sleep.
