Tips And Tricks
- Use these temperature regulating flannel sheets. These are embedded with a polymer that regulates body heat. Imperceptible capsules within the fibers absorb moisture to prevent chills and create a cozy surface.
- Use this temperature regulating blanket. It uses patented technology developed for NASA. It absorbs, stores, and releases heat to prevent chills. Embedded in the blanket are numerous micro capsules that absorb heat and release it when you are cold. Made from Merino wool and acrylic, the blanket is antibacterial and odor resistant.
- Use this feet warmer for bed. If you only have cold feet in bed, this product is for you. It keep toes toasty without overheating the rest of the body. Two temperature settings and automatically shuts off after eight hours.
- Do a few exercises before going to bed. Stretching exercises with deep breathing are enough to warm yourself up. No need to lift heavy weights or run for half an hour because you might feel too invigorated to sleep. There is one type of exercise you can do before bedtime, which will not only warm you up, if you know that I mean 🙂
- Drink a hot beverage to raise your core temperature, and to warm up your hands. Avoid caffeinated drinks or those with sugar because they will keep you up at night. You can have hot herbal tea, milk or water with lemon.
- Have a warm shower or bath just before you go to bed. This will raise your body temperature as well as relax you to help you fall asleep more easily.
- Wear pyjama or a long sleeve T-shirt. The best are those made of natural fibers such as wool or cotton. Stay away from synthetic materials.
- Have layers of blankets. Have a few of them ready on a chair by your bed. If you become cold in the night, you can reach for them. Layers trap warm air close to your body and you can easily remove them if you get too warm.
- Put on wool socks. Feet are usually the first part of your body that become cold. Wool is great for insulation and retaining warmth. You can also use battery powered heated socks or electric heated slippers.
- Use a hot water bottle. About an hour before bed, shove it under blankets to warm up the bed. Once you are in bed, place the bottle by your feet. It should stay warm all night long, keeping you warm.
