According to experts, the ideal temperature to sleep is between 16 - 18 degrees celsius. Could your mattress help regulate your temperature whilst you sleep?
With the unpredictability of the British weather, it’s hard to know what you can do to regulate your body temperature at night. If you’re tired of tossing and turning in summer and having to bundle up to stay warm in winter, our sleep experts have some top tips on how choosing the right mattress could help keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.
How Does Your Body Temperature React To Sleep?
Did you know that when you’re in bed ready to drift off, your body temperature decreases to initiate sleep? This means that if the temperature in your bedroom isn’t quite right, you could find it harder to slip into the deeper sleep required to wake up feeling rested in the morning. This could mean that you will find yourself waking up through the night, tossing and turning and unable to sleep!
You sleep in cycles throughout the night. The four cycles range from a light sleep, to a deeper sleep and then REM (rapid eye movement), and finally, to a lighter sleep to initiate waking up ready for the day ahead. If the temperature is too high or too low through any of these cycles, you have a higher chance of your sleep being disrupted. This will lead to feeling restless and waking up in the middle of the night.
If you’re finding yourself waking up throughout the night, it could be down to a few reasons. Have you considered how much of an impact your mattress is having on your temperature? External factors could be influencing your ability to switch off and become restful through the night; the technology involved in designing mattresses has evolved to become something much more than just a comfortable surface to sleep on.
