Frequently Asked Questions about Sleeping Cool
Could my mattress be making me sleep hotter?
That is one huge yes! When memory foam mattresses first gained notice it was for their comfort factors. As they gained in popularity consumers began noticing, and speaking up, about how they held in heat causing one to sleep too hot. Mattresses are now being made using special cooling gel and technology combined with memory and latex foams to provide the most comfortable of rest possible.
Crafted to be more reactive to the body for cooler nights, GhostBed has designed a proprietary formula with larger cells used in its gel memory foam layer. That layer, combined with its continuous aerated latex foam layer and the plush cover, create a great platform for a cool and comfortable sleep.
What is the best room temperature for sleeping?
When heading to beddy-bye the room temperature should be matched to the internal body temp, which is naturally lowered during sleep. With no two bodies the same, experts have noted that the ideal room temp for the best sleep possible should be between 65 – 72-degrees Fahrenheit. One can lose much needed sleep when spending the night battling a too hot room that is not agreeing with their body temperature.
Is there a way to cool off a mattress?
For those not ready to invest in a new cooling technology mattress, mattress pads made specifically for cooling are available for purchase. There are mattress pads are made with cooling gel, as well as technology advanced pads designed to circulate water for cooling purposes.
How can I cool off when sweating is my nightmare?
Hormones, illness, and just plain heat can cause a nightmare of sweating that can wake one up as much as the heat does. Bedding companies, such as Sheex, are making sheets made specifically to keep one cool by wicking away from the body the moisture that sweat causes. This allows for the body to stay dry and cool.
Will buying a new pillow help cool me off at night?
Older pillows do not have the same cooling abilities that newer ones have. Companies are now putting the cooling technology they have designed for mattresses into their pillows as well. GhostBed has used their bedding genius to create the world’s most advanced real-time cooling pillow.
Are there extra cooling options to use with the pillow I have?
Just as one can purchase a cooling mattress pad, there are also cooling pads to place atop a beloved pillow. Cooling pillow mats offer cooling technology to cradle the head. These mats are also generally small enough to take traveling.
What can I add to make me sleep cooler even in a room with air conditioning?

Is there a sleep mask that will help with creating a cooler sleep?
Yes, there are sleep masks created to put in the freezer that will provide the coolness ones requires for sleep comfort. These masks are generally comprised of gel beads that provide comfort. In addition to the cooling factor, these sleep masks also help to reduce morning eye puffiness.
What are some easy instant fixes I can do to help sleep cooler?
Shed the bed clothes! Experts agree that clothes will trap heat in. By sleeping naked one allows for the air to flow around the body to allow for a cooler sleep.
