Treat Winter Sleep Problems with Wool
Insulate Your Bedding with Natural Wool Fibers
Winter weather can mess with your sleep patterns in many ways. Shorter days, colder temperatures, and hectic holiday schedules can all keep you up at night. Fortunately, ECO-Pure™ Wool bedding from The Wool Bed Company™ can help you sleep soundly this winter.
Learn how our all-natural wool mattresses, comforters, and pillows will help you sleep through the cold, dark, and stress of winter.
Cold Temperatures, Warm Wool
Everyone loves feeling warm and snug at bedtime. While cooler temperatures are recommended for sleeping, frigid cold air in the bedroom can keep you awake. Our wool bedding is a natural insulator. Wrap yourself in a wool-filled comforter and stay warm all night.
Unlike other bedding materials, wool fibers are highly breathable. Air can move through your comforter, sheets, and mattress so you’re not left overheating.
Another threat of cold air? Dry air. You don’t want to wake up to a dry nose and throat in the middle of flu season. Consider using a humidifier if your bedroom air feels dry. Don’t worry about your wool bedding collecting moisture – it’s naturally water resistant! And our organic cotton sheets are smooth on chaffed skin.
Shorter Days Lead to Miserable Nights
Shorter days mean less sunlight. The lack of light makes it harder for the body to stay within a consistent sleep cycle. Normally, your body gets tired as the sun goes down. Your body clock knows nighttime is the time to power down. Winter changes that since it gets dark earlier in the day. This early darkness makes your body think it’s bedtime at 5 o’clock. If you have other evening plans, you’ll have to fight your body’s natural urges in order to stay alert and awake. When it finally is time for bed your body won’t go into bedtime mode like it should since you’ve essentially hit the snooze button since the sun went down.
Another common condition caused by decreased sunlight exposure is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD can lead to hypersomnia (oversleeping) and fatigue along with a general depression. Sunlight regulates the body’s production of melatonin. Too much can lead to SAD and all its symptoms.
While wool bedding cannot create more sunlight, it can help you get comfortable each night and increase your chances of falling asleep and waking up. If possible, adjust your schedule so you get more sunlight in the morning.
Stop Stress with Cozy Wool Comfort
Holiday parties, end-of-year planning, gift shopping, and traveling to visit family are all common winter stressors. Too much stress can ruin your sleep as your mind stays up worrying about every upcoming detail. Comfortable bedding from The Wool Bed Company™ will help you relax as you fall asleep.
Working out is another way to decrease stress and improve your sleep habits. Even a short amount of light exercise is enough to make a difference in winter.
Not getting enough sleep can lead to long-term health problems. ECO-Pure™ Wool bedding is doctor-recommended to help you sleep even with health issues. Stay rested this winter with a wool bedding set from The Wool Bed Company™.
