How can one avoid this issue, you may ask? There are many different things you can do to combat sleeping hot, but ultimately choosing the correct mattress will have the biggest effect.

Tips for Hot Sleepers

There are several things you can try to sleep cooler this summer. For starters, don’t use a lot of heavy blankets or sleep in heavy clothing. Try to choose pajamas that are cool, light and breathable.

Avoid having your blinds and curtains open all day. By making sure they are closed, you will keep the heat out of your room during the day.

Use a ceiling fan or box fan to keep the air flowing in your bedroom. If your box fan is set so that it is blowing out of your room, it will also pull some of the hot air out of the bedroom.
