Summer can be stifling. There’s nothing worse than trying to sleep when you are sweating and stuck to your sheets, rolling around and tossing and turning through a way-too-hot summer night.
You aren’t alone: Summer nights – while a catchy song – can make for some of the worst sleep of the year. And the hotter it gets, the worse it can be to find some comfort and fall asleep.
Don’t toss in that sweat-soaked towel, however. Serta – and their adorable sheep mascots – are here to help you find that cool, comforting sleep you want, even when it’s ten thousand billion degrees out. Here are four ways to beat that heat and stay cool with your Serta mattress.
Let’s start with the basics
Before you start looking at advanced sleep solutions, there are some basics you should sure to check off your list first. Are you using light, breathable summer sheets? Ditch your heavy winter comforters and throws, you won’t be needing them for a few months. At least.
Have you tried using a fan? Some people find the ambient noise soothing, so that can help promote sleep while also creating some air circulation. Air conditioning, opening a window, or other methods to cool down your whole room can also go a long way, but assuming these solutions haven’t helped, let’s look at a few other things you can try.
Cold showers are key
There are two types of people in the world: Those who shower in the morning, and those who shower at night.
But, if the heat of summer is dragging you down, you might want to try cooling your body before you get into bed. One study showed that a cold shower helped people fall asleep faster and have better sleep. Just make sure to dry off well, as you don’t want to bring any extra moisture with you into an already humid bedroom.
Cooler heads prevail
If you are looking for other ways to stay cool, perhaps you should start thinking less about your bed and focus more on your head. More specifically, what you are resting your head on every night.
What types of pillows are you using? Have you tried a Serta pillow with cooling technology? These pillow wicks away moisture, which helps keep you cooler. And when you are fighting away summer heat, every little bit helps.
Sometimes when you have a problem, you need a solution that was perfectly formulated to attack that problem. Something created with that exact problem in mind, and ready with a spear of solution that was sharpened specifically for whatever the problem is.
In this case, the problem is sleeping too hot. And your perfect spear of solution is Serta mattresses. Serta has mattresses that were engineered to help people who sleep too hot or too cold, as well as to address other common sleep problems.
Serta offers innerspring, memory foam, and hybrid options, meaning no matter what you prefer to sleep on, Serta has you covered. It’s also the only official mattress of the National Sleep Foundation. On top of that, Serta also offers a limited 10-year warranty, which means you’ll be able to count on a Serta mattress long after you finish counting sheep.
