Do you find yourself waking up a lot in the middle of the night either freezing cold or sweating or even having trouble sleeping when you jump into bed? The problem may lie in the pyjamas you are wearing and the bedsheets you are sleeping on. You may not think about the type of pyjamas you wear, but they do play a big part in how your body regulates temperature. If your body’s temperature is off, you will more than likely wake up in the middle of the night sweating or shivering.

Type of Pyjamas to Wear When It’s Warm or Cold

One of the more popular choices for pyjamas today is made from silk. Silk is very comfortable to wear in and out of bed, but they are not the best at keeping your warm or cold. When it is warm outside, clothing made from breathable cotton is the best choice to wear to bed. Cotton is lightweight and can absorb sweat to keep your body comfortable better than silk. When the season turns to fall or winter, it’s time to break out your cotton flannel pyjamas and some socks to help keep you warm throughout the night.

What You Sleep on Matters

Some people will settle for any old sheets they find at the store without checking the fabric used or thread count. Some sheets are made with artificial fabric which causes it to stretch, or feel too rough or slippery. What you want to pay attention to when you are buying your next set of sheets is the thread count as it determines how soft the sheets are. The higher the thread count is, the softer the sheets are. Much like your pyjamas, you should look for sheets that are made with 100% cotton because they have great breathability and absorbs your sweat so you don’t wake up in a puddle every morning. Also look for a thread count between 500-1,000. Anything above 1,000 won’t improve the softness and are usually just used as a marketing ploy.
