Keeping You and Your Bed Warm on Cold Winter Nights

Keeping You and Your Bed Warm on Cold Winter Nights

Nothing’s worse than climbing into bed on a freezing night to find that your sheets are as icy as the weather outside—but just because the air is chilly doesn’t mean you have to be! Here are some helpful tips to keep you and your bed cozy when temperatures start to drop during winter.

 

1. Wrap yourself in plush blankets or throws.

A good plush blanket works like an insulator, keeping the air between you and the blanket trapped in so your body stays nice and toasty. All that warm fluffiness is key to a soft and sound winter night’s rest.

 

2. Layer up!

Along with your plush throw, you could layer your sheets and blankets so you have a bundle you can snuggle into. You might be wondering, why not just throw a huge, bulky blanket onto the bed and call it a night? Well, if you start feeling too toasty for your taste, you’re probably going to struggle with the “it’s too hot, it’s too cold” thing with one leg out of the comforter for most of the night. If you layer your bed with thinner sheets or blankets, you can remove a few of them when you need to without abandoning all comfort.

 

3. Get your own heater.

Many of us have built-in heaters in the house, so all we have to do is walk to the thermostat and switch it on when we’re cold; however, doing that every night could rack up your heating bills. A better, cheaper option would be to plug in a personal heater just for your own room.

 

4. Cuddle up!

Whether it be with a partner, a friend, or even your pet, sharing body heat will not only help you stay warm (duh), but it can also help you sleep better! Yeah, this one’s a bit obvious, but along with warming you up, cuddling eases stress, especially when you’re with your significant other.

Or your pet. Cuddling with pets is good too.

 

5. No cuddles? Pajamas and a hot drink should do the trick.

Okay, so maybe cuddling just won’t work out for you. Maybe you are living alone without even a dog, cat, or friend to spare—no worries there! You still have your plush throws, layers of blankets, a personal heater, and best of all, yourself!

Gather your things and go find some cozy pajamas. Flannel, fleece, cotton, or thermal are your best options for self-care snuggles. Another great way to warm up before bed is preparing a steaming cup of whatever you want. Hot cocoa, warm milk, chamomile tea, or any tea—just make sure to lay off the caffeine!
