Stay Warm While You Sleep This Winter
Wednesday, 24 January 2018 | Admin
With winter in full swing, you're probably finding it more difficult than ever to get to sleep. If you suffer from Raynaud's disease, this season is particularly gruelling for you. Losing sleep can have a wider impact on your life than you think, often making you more terse and affecting your physical health.
Thankfully, there are some fairly simple answers to your problems. They don't involve simply turning the heating up and frittering away extra money in the process, either. Take a look at our solutions by reading our guide.
How Can I Stay Warm While I Sleep This Winter?
At Raynaud's Disease, we've quite literally got you covered. Our range of products can be used to keep you feeling toasty throughout the night as well as the day. Often, the condition causes discomfort in a particular area of the body, especially in the extremities like your hands and feet.
As a result, wearing extra layers in these areas or using a blanket can work wonders in keeping you warm at night and helping you get to sleep. We've outlined a number of products below that can be used to help keep you feeling warm throughout the night.
Warm Your Hands
If you're sick and tired of waking up without any feeling in your fingertips, the Fleece-Cover Micro-Hottie is an excellent way of keeping your hands warm throughout the night. Designed with a cosy lambswool-feel acrylic fleece cover, the product will feel great against your skin while you sleep. Its patented heat pack and outer fleece can be heated in the microwave to provide you with therapeutic warmth for up to four hours.
As a bonus, using gloves or hand warmers while you sleep can also prevent your hands from becoming cracked. If you suffer from secondary Raynaud's disease, your skin is more prone to dryness, so it's important to take the necessary measures to prevent this. Using gloves or other such products help to hold the moisture in while also allowing your hands to recover from the previous day's activities.
Use Heat-Retaining Sheets
Although the above products are excellent for providing targeted warmth, the Warming Copper Bed Sheets for King-Size Beds are an excellent way of more effectively retaining the heat. These are made with copper, which is breathable and soft for your comfort. The material is also known for its antimicrobial and odour-reducing properties, both of which make the sheets stay clean and smell better for longer.
