A great night’s sleep usually starts with getting into a plush bed covered with silky soft sheets and filled with two or more fluffy pillows and piles of warm, cozy blankets. Yet, this ideal bed scenario sometimes still falls short of delivering a restful sleep. This might have something to do with those bed sheets, pillow cases, and piles of blankets. While they make you feel nice and warm when you first snuggle up, they trap too much heat throughout the night and you end up waking at dawn, drenched in a puddle of sweat.
Keeping Your Bedroom Cool at Night to Get a Full Sleep
According to the National Sleep Foundation, you need to keep your bedroom at around 65 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the night if you want to get a sound, full sleep. During the day, the temperature of your body rises and falls slightly—and this pattern greatly depends on your circadian rhythm or sleep cycle. As you become tired, your temperature goes down, drops to its lowest level at around 5 AM and climbs gradually as morning begins. So if it’s too hot in your room while you’re sleeping, the temperature may interfere with your body’s natural sleep cycle and make you more restless through the night. In fact, many studies indicate that some forms of insomnia occur due to improper regulation of body temperature. Of course, everyone has a unique optimal temperature for sleep. Some are naturally cold sleepers. However, many are warm sleepers who easily feel hot during the night, especially when they’re wrapped up in too many blankets or comforters.
No matter your body’s sleep cycle or preferred temperature, one thing always stays the same — A lower temperature signals your body to sleep while a higher one says it’s time to wake up. So, to get the most restful sleep possible, you must send your body the right signals by keeping it cool in the hours leading up to your bedtime, as well as through the night.
Use Breathable Bedding to Signal Your Body to Sleep
Even if you kick off your blankets or comforter to stay cool, your humid bed sheets and pillow cases will keep you hot and disrupt your sleep. So, one thing you can do to let your body know it’s time to sleep is to switch to more breathable bedding. This is ideal especially if you’re a naturally hot sleeper whose temperature tends to spike during the night.
Bedding made from synthetic materials such as polyester tends to be less breathable than the natural types of materials like cotton, linen, and bamboo. These natural fibers can help wick away moisture, such as your sweat, that cause you to wake up damp in the morning, or worse, in the middle of the night. By switching to bedding made from organic materials, you can keep yourself cool and dry all night. As a result, you’ll wake up the next day feeling invigorated and energized.
When it comes to bedding that fosters a great night’s sleep, it’s safe to say that the number of blankets isn’t the only thing you should consider. Even if you are only sleeping with one or two, the wrong bedding material can trap excessive heat—and push your body temperature into the discomfort zone. So, if you want to ensure a full sleep each night, it’s time to replace your not-so-breathable bedding with temperature-regulating kinds like Cozy Earth’s bamboo bedding.
