Beat the Cold on the Dark Winter Nights

With the clocks now back, and the dark winter nights drawing in, it is no secret that 90% of us brits count down the hours each day until we can get home and cuddle up for the night. Whether that be in front of the fire or tucking up in bed with a hot chocolate it really is the best thing for those cold winter nights.

     Temperatures are usually at their lowest in the early hours and for most, you can find yourself in a disrupted sleep, shivering at 4am and unable to return to a peaceful sleep. Because of this, and it being the hot topic in our HQ we have put together a few helpful tips that could help on these winter nights.

 

Me, myself and I

Before making any drastic changes to your bedroom, we have a few simple tips that everybody can try to help those ice cube nights. Not only wrapping up warm with woolly socks and a hot water bottle, but some scientifically proven tips and tricks can also help;

 

  • When choosing your pyjamas, the 3 best materials to help keep you warm are wool, cotton or silk, otherwise known as Natural Fibres. Our first top tip will be to stay away from synthetic materials such as artificial silk and keep warm in hoodies or large t-shirts.
  • While it may be the last thing you want to do, exercising before bed whether it be a few crunches and sprints up and downstairs or a 5k run around the block, it is the best way to get your circulation moving and to keep the body warm. It can also help you tire easily to send you off to a lovely deep sleep.
  • Our favourite wind down is to run a hot bubble bath, turn down the lights and unwind with your favourite radox. This will warm you up, help relax your body and help make you sleepy. Light your favourite candles, have some relaxing music on in the background and let your body unwind from the day’s work, chores and stresses you may have had.

Accessories and the Environment
Whilst focusing on you is a main factor, it can all seem quite pointless if the environment around you isn’t helping support those cold nights. Some simple steps below can help create the perfect cosy home for those dark, cold and sometimes long winter nights;
 
  • Set your heating timer to turn on around 45minutes to an hour before you arrive home each day. That way you can ensure you feel warm before you even have time to think about feeling the chill
  • Keep your bedroom free from any draughts and maybe invest in a de-humidifier to ensure the air around you is always clean.
  • Ensure your windows are all sealed and if not already invest in double glazing
  • Always have your slippers by the front door for when you arrive home
  • If you have any wooden floors, invest in a possible winter rug to take the chill from your floor
  • Invest in thermal curtains to ensure no unnecessary draughts.
  • Upgrade your duvet to a higher tog rating and also place a soft blanket on top so if too hot in the night it can easily be removed.
  • A favourite of ours is an electric blanket. This can be switched on 20 minutes before bed to heat underneath to ensure you don’t have those 5 minute shivers.
