How many of you have a different set of bed sheets
for the summer and a different one for the winter?
5 SURE SHOT WAYS TO SLEEP
How many of you have a different set of bed sheets for
the summer and a different one for the winter?
Not too many, I am guessing.
Here is a look at why it is a good practice to have a
different set to suit sultry summer conditions.
When selecting sheets to drape on the bed this
summer keep the following things in mind:
Pick natural fibers.Avoid the satins, silks and
synthetic blends for sure!
Cottons, bamboo, linens and some cotton blends work
best because of their absorbent property (and yes, we
do sweat even when asleep!).
Natural fibers also have a cooling property.
While some may argue that silk is also a natural fiber
and has better regulating properties, the downside of
buying silk is its high price and maintenance.
Also, silk wraps close to your body and thus traps heat.
Nothing feels as good as a crisp cotton sheet on a hot
and humid day.
Oh, and try to buy cotton that has not been prewashed
with resin, since that would decrease absorbency!
It is a scientific fact that dark colors absorb and light
The obvious choice then is to go for all shades light
Not only do they look good and make you feel less
Bothered, they also absorb less of the bright warm
light in the room the whole day.

line in the bright sunshine.

and retains it for a while.
Yes, Egyptian Cotton sheets feel like bliss. But don’t
you get caught up in the thread count of a sheet!
In fact, the higher the thread counts the tighter the
weave and thus lesser the air that can flow between
If a sheet passes the feels-so-good test, pick it up.
Recommended counts are anywhere between 250
and 450 counts.
Small prints, pleasant patterns and pretty colors
look tempting on a hot day.
Loud prints equal noise and thus cause an uneasy
Stick to prints that calm you, that don’t have too
Imagine a white sheet with pretty pink rosettes
scattered delicately around versus a white sheet with
a lot of abstract swirls in a multitude of colors.
Remember, a cool mind is also important, so don’t
introduce any elements that mess with the
equilibrium of your mind and emotions!
We need to change and wash our sheets more
regularly during summer, even if we are in an air-
conditioned room (we sweat in our sleep
Buy sheets that are easy to wash, iron and use.
An added bonus of buying light colored sheets is their
easy maintenance – they can easily be bleached.
Stay cool; sleep well!
