Why Do We Sleep Hot?

Let’s chat about why we end up feeling like we’re roasting in our beds. There are a few common culprits:

Body Heat:

Our bodies naturally produce heat, and if you’re a side sleeper or sleep in a way that traps heat, you’ll likely wake up hot.

Room Temperature:

A warm room can raise your body temperature, making it hard to stay cool.

Bedding Materials:

Polyester and some types of foam retain heat and don’t breathe well.

Health Factors:

Certain conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or hormonal changes (like menopause) can increase night sweats.

Understanding these factors is the first step towards COOLER nights.

The Scoop on Bedding Materials

Here’s a fun fact: not all mattresses are created equal, especially when it comes to keeping you cool. Traditional mattresses often use materials like polyester and petroleum-based foams that hold onto heat.

  1. Polyester Fabrics: Cheap and widely used, but they trap heat and don’t breathe.
  2. Petroleum-Based Foams: These foams don’t breathe well and can heat up quickly with your body.

But here’s the good news: there are much better options out there!

Cool Down with These Materials…

    These materials can make a big difference in your sleep quality. Check out the video below for an up-close look at these breathable layers.

    Natural Viscose Bamboo: This stuff is fantastic! It reflects room temperature, stays cool to the touch, and breathes easily. Say goodbye to hot, sticky nights.

    Hydrofoam: Another great option. It’s a water-based foam that’s super buoyant and cool. Plus, it breathes really well, so you stay comfortable all night long.

    The Benefits of Cooling Mattresses

    Switching to a cooling mattress can do wonders for your sleep:

    Better Sleep Quality:

    Staying cool helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

    Less Sweating:

    Cooling materials wick away moisture, keeping you dry.

    Increased Comfort:

    These mattresses provide great support and reduce pressure points, helping you wake up refreshed.

    Healthier Sleep:

    Better sleep means better overall health, including reduced stress and a stronger immune system.

    Extra Tips for Staying Cool at Night

    Here are a few more tips to help you beat the heat:

    1. Keep Your Room Cool: Aim for a bedroom temperature between 60-67°F (15-19°C).
    2. Choose Breathable Bedding: Opt for natural fibers like cotton or linen for your sheets and pillowcases.
    3. Wear Light Pajamas: Go for lightweight, breathable sleepwear.
    4. Stay Hydrated: Drinking water throughout the day can help regulate your body temperature at night.
