Pillow Talk: Does your sleep routine have you feeling hot?

If there is one place we are all a little peculiar – it is in our bedtime routine. Some of us need our blankets tucked a certain way into the mattress, others need their pillow nice and cool, and some like sleeping with pillows the size of them! Whatever your routine is to sleep there always seems to be one issue or another keeping us all up at night! Whether it is the feeling of a pea under your mattress, the weight of your sheets, or the dreaded night sweats, something always seems to get in the way of our precious sleep! Let’s focus on something we can help you be more comfortable sleeping with – night sweats!

Simple Tips to Avoid Night Sweats

  1.          Wear lightweight loose pajamas to help with airflow.
  2.      Have a fan circulating the room to keep a nice breeze for when you start to heat up
  3.      Try a wool duvet, it can absorb up to 3 times more sweat than cotton blankets.

Is your mattress the culprit?

If you are feeling hot once you get under the covers and feel like the heat is simply turning up higher and higher, it might be time for a new mattress! If you are looking for comfort but want to avoid the heat that some mattresses can cause try some of the alternatives from brands like Sealy, Beautyrest and Tempurpedic – They use a variety of methods in their best mattresses designed to help keep you cool.  Some use state of the art foams, and bed constructions to promote air flow, layers of materials like wool in the top of your mattress, and even phase change material to absorb heat.  All in an effort to help you sleep cooler at night!

Night Sweats VS Pillows

Do you ever feel like you have a soft heater under your head just warming you up? Instead of flipping your pillow over and over trying to find the cool side try a new innovative and exciting pillow. It has been 25 years in the making and it all started from one man’s dream…

The new technology from Technogel will cool down your attitude towards night sweats.

A little about the gel technology is that it can actually lower your body temperature by 4 degrees F! It’s the difference of feeling like a cool summer night or the middle of the dessert. According to scientific studies, by decreasing your temperature you allow your body to lessen the demand for oxygen from your tissues, resulting in benefits in areas that generally have low circulation due to pressure.

Want to see it for yourself? Take a look at the video about their mattresses and see the difference in head temperature you could get from a simple pillow switch.

We carry their two best selling pillows the Anatomic and Deluxe.  The one that is right for you depends on the type of sleeper you are from side to back sleepers and even the side and back sleeper combo. Each pillow features the “Enhanced Breathability and Cooling Effect”. This is a patent pending design of air tunnels that enhance the gel’s thermal conductivity – in other words it is one cool pillow.
