What Pajamas Should You Wear for Your Best Sleep?
Sleep is big news these days. From giant tech companies developing sleep apps, to bloggers covering the “sleep crisis” currently plaguing the US, it seems like sleep is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Lucky for the modern consumer, the internet is a great source of information on all things sleep-related. Wondering about what makes the best bed? Check out the review on mattresses on the Nectar website. The secret is out, Nectar’s four different kinds of foam make for a great way to unwind after a long, stressful day.
But what about other factors that can get in the way of your sleep? There’s always the option of changing your diet, exercising, and well, going to bed early — but is there an easier solution. While you should always do those other things, it turns out there is one quick and easy solution that may be hiding in plain site: changing your pajamas.
Searching for the right pajamas can be a lot like finding a review on mattresses: everyone has an opinion and every opinion can’t be right. With that in mind, here’s a quick guide to some different pajama styles that should have you snoozing as soon as your body hits the Nectar.
Keep Your Bedroom Cool and the PJs Hot
Dr. Joseph Krainin, a sleep scientist, says that it’s best to keep your room at a temperature of around 70 degrees (or even cooler). This is the body’s optimum temperature for finding rest — so in the fall and winter months don’t be afraid to keep the heat on low. Pair this with a nice cotton pajama, and you’ll soon feel the difference.
“Cotton helps disperse body heat and moisture to keep you cool and non-clammy,” said Krainin. Cotton is a super breathable material that won’t have you waking up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night. Another thing that won’t give you cold sweats? The review on mattresses for Nectar. Their four layers of foam insures that no one is losing any sleep over that one.
No PJs Could be the Best PJs
Another sleep scientist, Dr. Elliot Alpher, believes that the best sleep actually happens in the nude. It’s the easiest way to regulate body temperature, and it doesn’t lead to uncomfortable sweating at night. If this seems a little overwhelming to you, silk pajamas could be the way to go. Silk is light to the touch and super breathable, so that you’ll never have to worry about waking up uncomfortable ever again.
Comfort is Key
Though there are other materials that can be of good use (bamboo, blends, even hypoallergenic cotton) in the end it comes down to your personal preference. Like a review on mattresses, everyone’s experience is totally subjective. That means if you prefer to sleep in a lycra jumpsuit, don’t let anyone tell you differently. It’s all about getting the most restful sleep possible. We at Nectar always have your back on that one.
