Should You be Hot or Cold in Bed?

There is nothing better than a warm bed on a cold winter’s night and a cool bed on a hot summer’s night, and of course everybody has their own favorite temperature between the sheets. But wouldn’t it be nice if there was a perfect temperature that would not only give you a great night’s sleep, but also improve your health? Turns out, there actually is!

According to research, scientists are suggesting that the idea bed temperature is a brisk 15-18 degrees. While a nice cool bed might sound great now in the middle of summer, we might change our minds when it comes to winter. After all in winter we are super fond of our blankets, hot water bottles and lovely warm beds! So what could possibly justify sleeping in a chilly bed? Well, according to research publish in the US National Library of Medicine, these lower temperatures could actually help to decrease risks of certain metabolic diseases, including diabetes. This is good news, but there is even better news: there is also evidence that those who sleep in a cooler bed at night might actually be burning more calories during the day!

Did we say good news? THERE IS EVEN BETTER NEWS: It could actually help you to look younger for longer. That is right! Sleeping a cooler bed could help freeze the aging process! How? Well, it turns out that sleeping a bed that is cooler than 21 degrees - slightly less than room temperature - could help to ensure your body releases melatonin, one of your bodies anti-aging hormones.

So to summarise: sleeping in a slightly cooler bed can help to prevent some diseases, lose weight and fight the aging process! Sleep has never sounded so good! So how can you ensure that your bed is the perfect temperature? Memory foam mattresses are your best options! These mattresses help to regulate temperature and get a great night’s sleep with the added benefit of being super comfortable!
