Winter Sleep Comfort Checklist

Winter Sleep Comfort Checklist

Source: Studio McGee

With the start of a new season, especially one that suggests cuddling near the fireplace, hot chocolate, and dunk-able cookies, my thoughts gravitate around hibernating for a few months and staying warm and comfortable. Night falls sooner now that the sun retires much earlier, and the temperature dips with it.As it gets colder, I tend to spend more time resting, and sometimes, going to bed earlier too. Just before the wind really starts the blow the white stuff around, it would be an ideal time to examine if certain upgrades are necessary to ensure a great night’s sleep.

Making a checklist of what may need an upgrade, an update, or an uplift is essential before it gets too cold. As I tend to get to bed a little earlier than during the summer months, even if it’s to catch up on some reading I’ve missed, I always want my bed to be the oasis of comfort.

Here are some ideas I always consider when making changes to adapt to winter.

A Comfortable Mattress

Although I seek warmer temperatures during those cold winter nights, a sagging mattress will certainly give me that when little to no circulation is getting around my body. But is that really what I want? It is important to note that a sagging mattress offers not only a warmer sleep surface but will also cause your back much grief as well. If sagging is what you are experiencing, it’s time for a new mattress.

Best Sheets for the Season

Sheets are the best temperature regulators with the change in seasons. If your mattress tends to hold on to heat, using cotton, cotton blend or bamboo sheets that will wick away any perspiration would be ideal.

If your mattress tends to feel cool to the touch and through the night, microfibre and flannel cotton will keep you toasty warm during those long winter nights. I keep my linen closet well-stocked with a variety of fabrics to ensure a comfortable sleep with the changing seasons.

Blankets and Throws for Comfort

Studies show that keeping your bedroom temperature below 19 degrees Celsius is ideal for a comfortable sleep. If that’s too cool for you, don’t raise the temperature dial, instead, use blankets and throws to keep your body warm while breathing cooler air. It’s better for you!

Consider choosing festive colors to match the season and add a little whimsy to your décor. Nothing will cheer you up more on a long cold winter’s night than a throw filled with frolicking reindeer!

Remember, winter doesn’t need to be depressing and cold so let’s make the best of it! I know that I will be enjoying a nice cup of hot chocolate while my family and I gather by the fireplace to watch Holiday movies and other fun-filled family traditions.
