Choosing the best bed clothes to wear to bed can be difficult. You want to sleep comfortably without getting too hot or too cold. Follow these tips and start enjoying peaceful, refreshing slumber each and every night.
Master a your bedtime routine
Before we talk about bed clothes, spend some time reevaluating your sleep routine. What you wear to bed is only part of the bigger sleep picture. Make sure you get into the habit of doing the same things before bed and avoid the common pitfalls that lead to a bad night’s rest. Avoid drinking too much, and try not to use electronics right before bed. Instead, try taking a bath or reading a book, and if you feel hungry, make sure to eat a healthy late-night snack. Consider wearing your bed clothes before you actually go to bed to remind your body that it is time to relax.
Also, make sure your sleep environment is primed to help you drift off to sleep by keeping your bedroom dark, cool, and quiet.
Choosing the Best Bed Clothes
Choose bed clothes that are made of breathable materials like cotton and silk. They will keep you cool and comfortable. Try to avoid tight-fitting bed clothes or ones with tight elastic waist bands. On the other hand, avoid bedclothes that are too loose. You don’t want to toss and turn all night to untangle yourself from those baggy pajamas.
Consider your feet!
According to a Swiss study, wearing a warm pair of socks before bed can help you fall asleep quicker. Just like when you take a warm bath, warm socks will help dilate your blood vessels so that when you take them off and go to bed, your blood vessels will constrict, helping you fall asleep faster.
Consider a complete sleep system
Your bedding is equally as important as buying the best bed clothes, in helping you fall asleep and stay asleep! Consider using a complete bedding system that keeps you cool and comfortable. Combining a temperature-regulating mattress pad, pillow, and sheet set will help ensure you are as close to your thermo-neutral zone as possible all night long.
