Keep your bed warm and cosy this winter
While many of us are familiar with trying to get to sleep and being too warm, as the temperature drops for winter, according to one survey around 49% of the population suffer sleepless nights due to the cold.
Temperatures tend to be at their lowest during the early hours of the morning, so this leads to many people suffering from disrupted sleep as sometimes its too cold and uncomfortable.
There really is nothing more comforting than curling up in a cosy Vispring bed, explore the full collections here and find your nearest retailer.
TOP TIPS TO KEEP YOU WARM SO YOU GET A GREAT NIGHT’S SLEEP
- Having cold feet can often be the reason to wake you during the night, so why not wear a pair of sleep socks. Make sure they’re breathable and not too thick, we recommend bamboo socks. The extra layer under your duvet can help to improve circulation which can also help you fall asleep faster.
- Have a warm bath just before you go to bed. If you’re very chilly then a warm bath will warm you up and it also has the added bonus of making you sleepy.
- Wear breathable night clothes such as pyjamas or a large T-shirt to keep you warm. Natural fibres such as wool, cotton or silk are naturally breathable so will warm you up just the right amount. We love the Ladies Traditional Cotton Pyjama Set from Their Nibs, £30
- Doing regular exercise and some light stretches before bed will get your circulation going, helping the body to keep warm. It is also a great chance to wind down after a busy day.
KEEPING YOUR BEDROOM WARM IN WINTER
- Keep your bedroom at optimum sleep temperature if you can, this on average should be between 16-18 degrees Celsius. You can find more tips for a great night’s sleep here.
- Look for a mattress that is made of wool. Wool keeps you warm when the weather is colder, and cool during the warmer months. Vispring’s expertly hand-crafted mattresses use wool amongst many other natural fibres, explore the full range here.
- Use a duvet that has a high tog rating. Feather and down duvets can be best to keep you nice and warm and are most popular in the coldest climates, for good reason. They’re very well insulated whilst still being breathable.
- Make sure your bed is giving you the best support for both yourself and your partner, you can find your optimum tension by following our guide to choosing your perfect mattress. Having a sagging bed can push you closer together which while it may at first feel cosy, can lead to feeling very clammy during the night.
- A classic hot water bottle is still one of the best ways to keep you toasty and warm through the night.
