Winter is coming and we can feel it!

As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, there’s nothing we love more than curling up for a restful sleep in a warm, comfortable and cosy Sleepeezee bed.

Did you know that cold bedrooms can play havoc with your sleep? With temperatures usually at their lowest in the early hours of the morning, many people often find that they are sometimes too cold to get a quality night’s rest.

So what are we to do when the weather is making us feel tired and groggy the next day? We’ve rounded up our top tips for sleeping during cold nights below. Perfect for beating the chill this winter!

Upgrade your bedding

This might sound obvious, but thick, heavy bedding will help to increase your body temperature on a cold night. So we would recommend that you swap out your thin bed sheets for thick cotton alternatives.

Pull up your socks

Ensure that you don’t have icy cold toes by putting on a pair of soft bed socks! This extra layer under the covers can help to improve circulation in your extremities, which can help you to fall asleep more quickly.

Soak in a hot bath

Nothing quite beats the relaxation of a warm, soothing bubble bath, complete with a good book of course. A bath just before bed helps to relax your muscles and in turn helps you to nod off into a deep sleep more quickly.

Work up a sweat

Try to incorporate exercise into your daily routine to help you fall asleep more quickly at night. This will get your circulation going and will help to keep your body warm.

Cuddle a hot water bottle

Last but certainly not least, an old-fashioned hot water bottle is still one of our favourite ways to keep warm once you’re all tucked up in bed!

Which one of these tips do you already practice? Incorporating even just one of these ideas into your daily routine will aid you in getting a good night’s rest this winter!
