When it comes to getting a better night sleep, there are a couple different tricks you can try. But if you often wake up in a pool of your own sweat, you’re in for a nightmare. Sweaty sleepers, this article is for you.
Why do we sweat in our sleep?
While you’re snoozing, your body is hard at work trying to keep your temperature in a healthy range. This process is known
thermoregulation, and some bodies must work harder than others. Being too
hot at night isn’t just irritating, it can also interfere with your sleep cycle
and limit your amount of REMs( Rapid Eye Moment).
If your internal thermometer is higher than average, don’t sweat it. There are a couple of easy solutions for you. First and foremost, take a look at what type of material you’re sleeping upon. Some materials and fabrics trap heat during the night, making them perfect for winter, but a disaster for summer.
We’re not trying to play it cool or anything, but Canningvale has you covered this summer for comfortable, sweatless sleep. Here’s our online round-up of the best type of bed sheets to keep you feeling fresh all night long.
Sheets that keep you cool
A cool bed sheet is one that’s made up of natural fibers or has moisture-wicking properties aimed at helping prevent nightly perspiration releasing heat faster than you can build it up. Stay away from high thread counts. While the fabric might feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, the tight weave will hinder breathability and make you feel like you’re relaxing in a sauna instead.
A breathable bed sheet should have space between the weave to allow the hot air to escape. This means look for sheets with a low thread count and those made up of natural and organic materials.
Organic fabric sheets are the best for summer
The ideal temperature to sleep in is between 15 and 19 degrees. Not everyone prefers to sleep with an Aircon. Many savvy sleepers look for natural materials.
