Whether you’re a perpetual hot sleeper or just someone who gets sweaty on warm summer nights, you might not be getting as much rest as you require. In fact, research shows that the ideal temperature for sleeping is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit, and hotter weather often causes people to have issues with falling or staying asleep. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer sleep disturbances in silence anymore. At Pure Parima, we’re passionate about helping you rest easier at night so you can enjoy more peaceful, productive, and enjoyable days. Here are some steps you can take to stay cool during the night no matter how high the temperature outside rises.
Switch Up Your Sleep Position
Are you a front, back, or side sleeper? Depending on your sleep position of choice, you may be more likely to overheat in the night. If you want to stay cool, aim to minimize contact between your body and the mattress by sleeping on your side. Need to sleep on your back? Stretching out your limbs in a starfish shape can be another great way to keep cool on hot nights. Additionally, habitual hot sleepers may want to avoid snuggling up to their partner. While spooning offers comfort, the shared body heat can add to your issues, causing night sweats and disturbed rest.
Wear Something Loose
Those form-fitting pajamas might look good, but that doesn’t mean they’ll help you sleep. The fact is that tight clothing restricts air flow. As a result, you might wake up drenched in sweat or struggle to sleep through the night. If you want to stay cool all summer long, aim for lightweight, loose clothing such as pajama shorts and a top or a long t-shirt.
Opt for a Lighter Comforter
That heavy down comforter might be perfect for cuddling up on cold winter nights. However, in the spring and summer months, the last thing you want to do is trap heat during the night. For best results, swap out those warmer synthetic blankets for cooler ones made of natural fabrics like cotton, bamboo, and silk. A natural moisture wicker, cotton helps keep skin dry, a trait that’s especially valuable for those of us with allergies and sensitivities.
Choose Egyptian Cotton Sheets
Speaking of bedding choices, Egyptian cotton is the best option for staying cool all summer long. Because sheets are in direct contact with your skin, it’s especially important to choose natural, moisture-wicking fabrics. Light, thin, and highly breathable, Egyptian cotton sheets and pillowcases allow hot air to pass right through. For a functional set of summer sheets that’s also luxurious, consider one of Pure Parima’s new Hira bedding sets. Made from silky-soft 100 percent Giza Egyptian cotton, the pieces in this collection feature extra-long cotton fibers for long-lasting comfort. Each set includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two matching pillowcases. Choose from an array of colors, including white, linen, tan, soft peach, and spa.
Keep a Throw Blanket on Hand
Of course, even the hottest summer day can turn chilly at night. If your spouse or roommate has a habit of blasting the AC when you’re trying to rest, you might want to keep a blanket around in case you get chilly while you sleep. In particular, it’s common for feet to get cold, as they’re the part of the body that’s located farthest from the heart. Avoid icy toes by keeping a small blanket or throw at the bottom of the bed. If you get cold in the night, all you have to do is pull up the blanket and drift back off into Dreamland.
