Tips to Keep Cool at night with Cotton Bedding

TOP TIPS FOR A COOL NIGHT’S SLEEP

Choose your bedding carefully to make sure you have a light weight low tog duvet for the time of year and organic cotton sheets. Most people find a 3.0 or 4.5 Tog are adequate in the summer months. If you are too warm in bed it can lead to a poor night’s sleep.

Using breathable organic cotton bed linen which is effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration, it becomes much easier for your body to regulate your temperature while you sleep. If you use synthetic bedding, it can make you feel hot and sticky in the night.

Check your mattress protector is a cool cotton or hypoallergenic silk which really does regulate body temperature.

Silk filled duvets and mattress toppers from The Fine Cotton Company are naturally hypoallergenic and they really do help to regulate your body temperature.

Relax before going to bed – maybe have a cool bath or shower, listen to some quiet music or a relaxation tape or do some yoga.

Bedroom Colours: How Do You Sleep?

Room colour does influence your mood and set the tone for your living environment. Therefore it’s important to choose a bedroom décor that will help you relax and induce sleep.

Creativity

Orange expands your thinking. It reduces self-consciousness and allows you to express yourself with confidence. Use it in your home when you want to feel younger. It is the colour of laughter and celebration.

Order

Deep blue encourages efficiency. It will purify your thinking, so you can cut through the clutter and discover what is most important in your life. It helps you integrate the big picture with the little picture. Wear dark blue when you need to make a decision.

Calm

Blue gives a sense of peace. It dissolves tension and promotes tranquillity. Light blue especially brings ease into the home and harmony into relationships. Wearing or surrounding yourself with it helps calm aggressive tendencies and eliminates discord. Those with bedrooms this colour tend to get the best rest – nearly eight hours a night – and wake feeling happy and positive.

Energy

Bright red will fortify you. It is a stimulant. It promotes courage and fearlessness. Use this color when you want to increase self-confidence. But too much red can make you feel overly excited or agitated. A little goes a long way.

Concentration

Yellow increases your focus. It is known for enhancing intelligence and mental agility. It can help stimulate conversation and clarify thoughts. People sleeping in rooms decorated in calm colours, such as yellow, blue or green, received the best night’s sleep.

Health

Green is also the colour of healing. It represents nourishment and helps steady the body, balancing your equilibrium and encouraging stability. Use it to rejuvenate yourself, to promote physical and emotional well-being. Green and yellow are also winners, with those choosing these colours clocking up roughly seven hours and 40 minutes of sleep.

Sensuality

Deep red inspires passion. It helps awaken the libido. Use it to move you through inhibitions and emotional blocks that prevent you from expressing yourself. It will remind you to live life fully and to love your body. Try a deep red…ottoman, lampshade, accent chair.
