If you find that you’re either too hot or you’re too cold when you go to sleep then sometimes you just can’t get comfortable. Factory Mattress and Bedrooms wants you to get the best night’s sleep. Here are tips to get a good nights rest whether you’re hot or your cold.
How to Get Sleep If You’re Too Warm
1. Take a Warm Shower
A good practice for anybody who gets too warm is to actually take a warm shower. This does not work if you take a cold or an extremely hot shower. Make sure the temperature is right in the middle.
2. Keep Your Hair Damp
Towel dry your hair before you go to bed so that it stays damp. Your hair drying by evaporation actually cools your body down while you sleep.
3. Don’t Do Anything That’ll Raise Your Body Temperature
Lots of subtle things can raise your body temperature. Make sure you avoid activities that involve exercise, any meal, and caffeinated beverages. These activities will only raise your temperature and also make it hard to sleep.
How to Get Sleep If You’re Too Cold
1. Hold Warm Liquids
Drinking a cup of tea ( maybe with a shot of whiskey) may sound like a good idea to warm you up before bed, but they are actually counterproductive if you’re cold at night. Alcohol gives you the temporary ‘feeling’ of warmth while actually cooling your temperature. Drinking tea or any warm beverage will also only make you colder as it heats your internal organs that your body will work hard to release. These two activities will only make it harder to fall asleep.
Cuddle up with your significant other, your furry pet, or your favorite blanket. Absorbing and sharing body heat will make you warmer and also just make you feel better in general.
3. Go To Bed On Time
Your body temperature fluctuates during different times a day according to your circadian clock. Making sure that you manage your bedtime routine well will make all the difference in your body’s temperature and sleep schedule.
