Sleep For All Seasons
We humans are incredibly intelligent creatures – we’ve managed to send humans to the moon, eradicate once fatal diseases and even create robots in our likeness. However, for all our resourcefulness and intelligence, we are, after all, still mammals and just like any other mammal we need to eat, breathe oxygen and sleep to survive. These foremost needs – eat, breathe, sleep – affect every arena of our lives and drive our behaviour and choices. And just like mammals, we too are affected by the seasons. As the levels of light and the temperature changes with the seasons, so do we.
Good Sleep is a Hot Topic
Light levels and temperatures have a direct effect on our circadian rhythm, the ‘boss’ of our sleep and wakefulness. Autumn brings milder days, cooler nights, and also a change in our sleep which has us (subconsciously) wanting to sleep more. It also means a drop in temperature, and thus more comfortable and restful sleep for many.
Sleep is a supremely important for our mental health and our biological processes. When we sleep our body works hard to repair cellular damage and excrete waste from our bodies, done mainly through sweating. As a biological function, sweat also helps to regulate our core temperature – and our core temperature is directly linked to sleep. It is a drop in our core temperature which sends signals to the brain to ‘slow down’ and move into a sleep state. If your core temperature doesn’t drop efficiently then you’re likely to have a disrupted and uncomfortable night’s sleep.
Tech and Tools to Support Sleep
We can’t control the seasons, but we can have better control of our sleep environment. We can choose to use the tools at our disposal, be it temperature-control technology, breathable bedding or a good quality mattress. Even small, seemingly insignificant tweaks to our sleep environment can make a big difference, so it’s worth investing in the best sleep aids we can afford.
Our sleep surface, or mattress is arguably the single most important element when it comes to good sleep. Even though each person has their unique preference when it comes to comfort, one thing is constant and that is the need for good temperature control and moisture management. Our sweat is one of the ways in which our body manages our its core temperature, and that sweat is absorbed by your mattress to some degree.
