It’s getting warmer out. Chances are you have some time off from work. School’s out, too. And you plan to spend your days outside, grilling at the park, boogie boarding at the beach, or just generally thawing out after the long winter. Yeah, summer feels like heaven.

Until bedtime ruins everything. Then it feels more like hell.

Let’s face it, there’s nothing cozy about being sweaty and sleepless, or having to peel yourself off of your bedsheets. You could crank the AC—if you’ve got it. But there are other ways to stay cool and comfortable in bed.

So conserve that energy. Cut that cost. And follow some of these tips.

Mattresses can be cool.

They use cooling technology, like TempActiv®, or cooling memory foam to get to your ideal sleep temperature. They’re very accommodating. And that’s always nice.

Breathable bedsheets.

Smothering. Suffocating. Neither are good qualities to have in relationships. The same goes for bedsheets. For true, ventilated comfort, you’ll want some breathable, cotton sheets.

Don’t overdress for the occasion.

It’s bedtime. The coolest outfit is the skimpiest. Light PJs will keep you comfy throughout the night. And if you’re tempted to strip down completely, keep in mind that sweat gets whisked away with cloth—so maybe reconsider donning your birthday suit.

Use a more well-rounded pillow.

Why settle for a pillow with only one cool side? Some pillows are made with the same cooling technology as those cool mattresses we mentioned earlier.

Try one or try them all. But if you really want to stay cool this summer, try our mattress selector and start there.
