- Choose cotton sheets. Cotton breathes, making your sheets and pillow feel relatively cool.
- Take a (warm) shower. As seductive as a cold shower sounds, it only has the opposite effect on your body temperature. The cold water causes a temporary decrease in your body temperature, which is perceived by your internal thermostat. It then goes to work to keep your body temperature rising, making you even warmer. After a warm shower, just the opposite happens: your thermostat responds to the temporary increase in your body temperature by lowering it.
- Put on a fan that moves the air in the bedroom and provides a welcome breeze.
- Try to keep your house cool by keeping windows, doors, and curtains closed during the day. In the early morning, the outside temperature is often still very pleasant; a good moment to ventilate your bedroom and the rest of the house.
The best tip: the waterbed, the solution for summer and winter
One solution you can benefit from all year round is the waterbed. A waterbed feels wonderfully cool in summer and pleasantly warm in winter. The minimum temperature for your waterbed is 24° C. At a lower temperature, your body will over-cool during sleep and spend more energy to regulate body temperature. In summer, we recommend heating your waterbed to 26 ° C. At this temperature, the waterbed vaporizes your transpiration moisture and gives you a less clammy sleeping sensation. In this way, the waterbed keeps your body relatively cool even on warm summer evenings. Buy thebest-mattress.org online.
