What’s more uncomfortable than not being able to fall asleep because you’re too hot? Nada. Well, probably a few things, but it’s certainly high on the list. Tossing and turning trying not to sweat … waking up in the middle of the night kicking your comforter aside … it’s no fun and massively disrupts your sleep cycle. Only to leave you unable to start your next morning fully refreshed and rested. Ugh.
We came up with a list of seven ways to keep cool throughout the night to hopefully end this sweaty pattern and gain the proper amount of sleep. Here’s to a more blissful bedtime routine.
Our team is obsessed with these eucalyptus sheets. They are as soft as butter and have a cooling effect thanks to the eucalyptus material. We want to curl up in bed just thinking about them. Plus, they are sustainable, antimicrobial, and hypoallergenic, so all signs point to a healthier night’s rest.
Keep a soothing balm next to your bed
Before you go to bed, rub a bit of this relaxing balm on your chest and around your temples. The certified organic essential oils will help lull you into a chill state of mind while the (again) eucalyptus provides a cold sensation throughout your body.
Sleep with your hair up and protected
Long hair, thick hair, fine hair—it doesn’t matter, sometimes you just sleep better with your locks pinned back. If this sounds familiar and helps keep you cool during the middle of the night, protect your strands and your amount of shut-eye with the help of these comfortable and breakage-free silk scrunchies.
Swap your pillowcases for silk options
Speaking of silk, these pillowcases are incredible (yes, for your hair and to prevent fine lines while you get your beauty rest), and the pure material lends a chilly little nest for your face to rest on as you drift into a deep sleep. We’re torn between these and the eucalyptus pillowcases; this one comes down to a personal preference.
Sleep in loose and lightweight PJs
Sounds like a no-brainer, but breathable pajamas are key to keeping cool throughout the night. Or simply sleep naked with only breezy underwear on.
Declutter your space
When your bedroom is stuffed with an overwhelming amount of things … it’s, well, overwhelming. And who wants to go to bed feeling claustrophobic and stressed over clutter? It’s the quickest way to make your body go into freak-out mode and as a result, overheat and sweat. Do as our CCO, Sarah Howard, did and turn your bedroom into your personal sanctuary.
Always have a glass of water on your bedside table
Hydrate before you go to bed, if you wake up in the middle of the night, and when you get up in the morning. Flushing your body with H2O is one of the healthiest (and easiest) habits you can do all day, every day.
