As the weather starts to get warmer, many people start to struggle with staying cool enough while they sleep. One of the key aspects of quality sleep is a cool environment, as no one can sleep soundly while feeling uncomfortable or sweaty. Continue reading for a few tricks on how to keep your bed cool at night, even without the air conditioner.
Cool Down Your Body Before Bed
Before you even get into bed, there are a few ways you can cool your body temperature down, so you don’t feel as warm. First, try not to exercise right before bed, but rather leave at least three hours between the end of your workout and your bedtime. Also, you want to avoid eating heavy foods right before you sleep, as your body isn’t meant to digest food as it rests. Eating dinner or a large dessert close to your bedtime can not only lead to weight gain, but also a poor sleep.
Keep Bed In The Shade
If your bedroom shades are open and your bed has been soaking in the sun all day, it’s probably going to be warm by the time you crawl into bed. Keep your bed out of the sun by closing your blinds, or moving the bed to a more shaded area of the room.
Cool Side Of The Pillow
Sometimes, it’s the simplest solutions that work the best! There’s nothing worse than sleeping on a warm pillow, and flipping the pillow to the cool side may be enough to cool your skin down to get a good night’s sleep. However, this isn’t always enough, but there are cooling pillows on the market that are made you provide cooling relief to keep you comfortable all night long.
In addition to warm pillows, warm sheets are the worst for getting a good night’s sleep. While it may seem silly at first, people swear by putting their sheets in the freezer for a while to cool them down. This trick will work for about an hour but may be enough to allow you to fall asleep. However, if you don’t want to go through the effort of striping your sheets then putting them back on the bed every night, there are many mattresses and mattress toppers that are made to remain cool all night long.
