The warmest part of the year is nearly here. Sleeping cooler is even more important this time of the year. If you have a tendency to get warm at night, the summer months can make it feel impossible to stay cool enough to sleep eight uninterrupted hours. Thankfully, there is something you can do about it. We’re talking about getting a new mattress!
Why do I get Hot?
First, let’s understand that getting a little warm isn’t a bad thing. It’s actually very normal and a part of a healthy sleep cycle. Temperature fluctuations at night are part of your body’s circadian rhythm. These changes help to control your sleep/wake cycle. Your body’s core temperature drops in the evening to get ready for sleep which helps you to feel tired. You naturally get warmer when it’s time to wake up in the morning.
The problem arises when you begin to warm up well before it’s actually time to wake up. When you wake up sweating, it can be particularly unpleasant. This leads to interrupted sleep, a grouchy morning, and sweaty sheets that need to be washed.
Can my Mattress Help?
If you are currently sleeping on a memory foam mattress, this may be exacerbating the issue. One of the biggest complaints regarding traditional memory foam is that it makes you “sink down.” This isn’t good for people who get hot when they sleep! You see, one of the reasons many people enjoy memory foam mattresses is because they cradle the body and relieve pressure points. In order for the memory foam to do this, it has to be relatively dense. That means that memory foam has less airflow than other materials.
The denser a memory foam mattress is, the more heat it will trap. This rise in temperature can decrease your quality of sleep and leave you feeling poorly rested when morning comes if it leads to waking up frequently and tossing and turning. That is where a new PranaSleep mattress can help.
Our premium latex mattresses feel lighter and have less hug than a similar option made from memory foam. This means you won’t sink as far down, which is great for people who tend to get hot when they sleep. You get all of the positive benefits of memory foam, without the sweating! Our mattresses still relieve pain and pressure points in your neck and shoulder, but have a more general contour. You will get a profoundly deep sleep with the help of a natural thermostat when you choose a PranaSleep premium Talalay Latex mattress.
