The sun is shining, the skies are blue and your skin is sun kissed. Summer is in the air and it feels like pure bliss – just until it’s time to fall asleep. All of a sudden, the heat isn’t as fun as it was a few hours ago when your alarm went off to remind you to change positions to achieve that even glow. Sleeping, or should we say attempting to sleep, in the summertime heat can be brutal and an epic fail. Besides the obvious sleep with the AC on solution, here are a few other tips to help you stay cool this summer.
Cool, Calm & Cotton Bed Sheets
Cotton should always be your go-to for bed sheets no matter the weather. Whether you need to warm up or cool off, cotton’s got you covered - literally!
As pure cotton is a breathable fabric, it absorbs body moisture making you feel cooler or warmer as needed. Among the many other benefits, its ventilation properties is what will save you this summer.
Eat Less, Drink More
More food means more work for your digestive system. After eating that second, third, and fourth slice of pizza (no one is judging!) more body heat is produced to digest it all. Avoid eating heavy meals before bedtime and replace with light, easy-to-digest food.
Along with eating light, staying hydrated is key to avoid those late night sweats. Drinking a glass of water before bedtime will ensure your body stays cool and avoid you to wake up with a dry mouth during the peak of your wildest dreams.
Be sure not to drink too much though – that will have you waking up for other reasons instead.
Ever heard of a mattress that recycles body heat while you sleep?
The Signature Sleep Reset mattress includes Nanobionic technology that does just that. The technology converts body heat into Far Infrared Rays that helps promote a temporary increase in local blood flow, restful sleep, and faster recovery.
Along with the Nanobionic benefits, the Reset collection is made up of distinctive and high-performance layers, such as natural Talalay laytex and charcoal, that allow superior airflow and contain body-regulating properties. No need to really do much to keep cool, the Reset mattress will do that for you.
They say sunshine is the best medicine, and we agree, if used wisely. Stay safe and cool this summer during those hot summer days and nights. Who knows, you might get a new mattress out of it!
