By now we should all know and acknowledge the importance of a good night’s sleep and how it affects our overall health and wellbeing, but come Australian summer time it can be near impossible to get a good night’s sleep thanks to our balmy summer nights.
There are certain things to consider when it comes to picking your summer time bed sheets, and picking the right choice can make the world of difference to your REM cycle. When picking your sheets, consider the following:
Thread count – the lower the thread count the cooler the sheets and the better for summer thanks to increased circulation.
Natural fabrics – because you’re going for a lower thread count make sure your sheets’ fabric is up to scratch so it is still soft and cosy to sleep on. Natural fabrics are also better for airflow and circulation and the best materials to look for are cotton, linen and bamboo.
Go light – look for lighter colours for your summer time sheets as dark colours absorb heat and especially if your bed is by a window it will trap this heat, making it particularly warm come bed time.
