The most common reason that you sleep hot is that your sleeping environment is HOT. Luckily, there are things you can do to cool your sleep conditions.
Turn Down Your Thermostat
The ideal bedroom temperature for sleep falls between 66 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. To stay warm while your room’s temperature is in this range, wear pajamas and use bedding that keeps your bed at a comfortable temperature.
Watch What You Eat and Drink Before Bed
Avoid coffee or spicy meals before sleeping. Caffeine can increase your core body temperature and delay sleep. Spicy foods can also increase your core body temperature and reduce sleep quality. Plus, both caffeine and spicy foods are often linked to digestive disturbances which can make it harder to fall asleep.
Choose a Cooling Mattress
Did you know that some types of mattresses can make body temperature control more difficult than others by trapping warm air between your body and the mattress itself? Memory foam in particular could cause you to experience high body temperature while sleeping. Why?
The heat from your body is transferred into the foam to help make it warm and mold to the shape of your body. While this may make the mattress more supportive, this heat is reflected in your body and can lead to overheating.
There are other cooling gel technologies that do the opposite and keep things cool while you sleep.
Another way to keep your body cooler at night is to sleep on cooling sheets. These temperature-regulating sheets move moisture away from the body which creates a cooler, more comfortable sleeping environment.
By choosing bedding that helps to keep you cool when you’re warm and warm when you’re cool, you’ll be much less affected by spiking temperatures overnight.
