Getting a good night’s sleep seems like an impossible goal especially when you constantly find yourself wide awake in the middle of the night. It’s already early morning and yet your eyes are still glued to the ceiling, and your mind still buzzing with thoughts as you look for ways to squeeze in more precious minutes of sleep.
We’ve all been there. At one point, we’ve all woken up feeling tired before heading to work. For some of us, we become more moody and forgetful. We may also have trouble concentrating on minor tasks that involves problem solving and creativity. Eventually, our poor sleeping habits leaves us with serious health risks.
This cycle of sleeplessness is something we have to break as our body needs sleep to function at its best. We need better sleep so we can start each day feeling more alert, emotionally balanced, and energized.
You have probably heard of some tricks for getting a good night’s sleep before: keep the room dark. Listen to relaxing music. Avoid caffeine before going to bed. However, one important factor for getting quality sleep is to consider the bed sheets you are sleeping on. After all, it’s the first thing your body comes in contact with once you go to bed.
The sheets you sleep in could be the reason you are tossing and turning at night.
Some fabrics used in beddings are made from synthesised materials that are often treated with harsh chemicals. While fabrics made from 100% natural sources are free from chemicals and toxins. In fact, Bamboo beddings do not need chemicals and are naturally easy on your skin. Aside from this, it’s also 3 times softer than cotton sheets and packs more health benefits to help you experience better sleep.
- It’s thermal regulating
- For those of us who are undergoing treatment, medications, sleep disorders, or even the common fever, we may experience night sweats. Bed sheets made from cotton, absorbs your sweat and traps heat in the material. This causes your body to heat up until eventually you wake up to toss your sheets for some relief. However, bamboo beddings are different. They are naturally thermal regulating so it does not retain moisture. Instead, it moves heat away while you sleep - keeping you at the ideal temperature all night. It is also very lightweight and breathable so it feels easy on your skin even on hot nights.
- It’s antimicrobial and hypoallergenic
- For those of us who have skin allergies (psoriasis, eczema), skin asthma, or sensitive skin, we may experience itching and irritation that becomes worse at night. This may be due to the dust mites living in your bed. This is quite common in cotton sheets. This is because cotton traps moisture - one of the primary triggers for microscopic pests. While Bamboo sheets have “Bamboo Kun”, a natural agent that allows it to be anti-microbial. This means that bamboo beddings are free from allergens, dust mites, odors, and bacteria so it reduces your allergies and it’s gentle on sensitive skin.
- It feels silky soft
- How you feel in your sheets can help you get a good night’s sleep. After all, when you feel comfortable, it becomes easier to drift into sleep. While some may say that a high thread count means softer sheets, this is not always the case. The fabric of your bed sheets also matters when it comes the quality of your sheets. Bamboo fibres are considered softer than regular cotton. Bamboo fibers are also known for its smooth and silky texture. That is why bamboo sheets are comparable with regular cotton sheets with higher thread counts.
There’s no denying that sleep is an essential part of our lives. We spend a third of our lives in bed, and most of our day depends on how well we slept. So, we recommend investing in quality beddings that can give you years of use and comfort so you can sleep soundly at night and wake up feeling great in the morning!
