A healthy lifestyle goes beyond just good nutrition, exercise, and stress management. Everyone appreciates a good night’s sleep. Parents, especially, know the value of restful sleep. Although there are many things that can affect your sleep and nighttime schedule, it is a known fact that sleep deprivation or poor-quality sleep can have an adverse impact on one’s long-term health.
As per mentalhealth-uk.org, it’s recommended that adults up to the age of 64, need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. However, almost 1 in 5 people in the UK aren’t getting enough sleep.
It is common to not pay attention to what we wear during bedtime. But it's crucial to dress appropriately before going to bed every night, just as we would when getting ready for our day outside our home, or for work. This is especially true considering how your clothing affects your quality of sleep and general health. This does not mean dressing up fancy for bed. All we mean is selecting a soft, naturally cooling, breathable material that will aid in maintaining a consistent body temperature during the night. And what better fabric than cotton?
Cotton is one of the most popular materials for nightwear, especially during the summer season. It is a natural fibre. Moreover, it is lightweight, breathable, and unmatched in absorbing sweat. By allowing heat to leave the body, cotton helps regulate body temperature. Additionally, cotton pyjamas are affordable and come in a variety of designs and patterns.
Below are a few benefits of wearing cotton PJs to bed.
Cotton is a natural and breathable material. It allows air to circulate and keeps you cool and comfortable while you sleep.
It is soft and comfortable. Cotton feels gentle on your skin, reducing the risk of irritation or discomfort that could interrupt your or your child’s sleep.
It is also a highly absorbent material, meaning it can help wick away moisture from your body, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout the night.
As a material, cotton is strong and durable. It can withstand regular washing and wear. This means your cotton pyjamas are likely to last a long time, providing you with reliable comfort and value for money. Since you don’t have to shop for cotton PJs often due to their durability, they are great for the environment and your bank account.
Cotton pyjamas come in a range of styles and designs, making them a versatile choice for any taste. Whether you prefer classic pyjama sets, character PJs, or more modern designs, there's a cotton pyjama option to suit your needs.
Although it's natural to go through times of poor sleep, this typically does not indicate a major health issue. However, if someone regularly experiences poor sleep, it could lead to physical, emotional, and mental health issues. What you wear to bed may also contribute to a good night’s sleep and rest. Therefore, as a minor change and a step in the right direction, it is essential that you choose nightwear made with materials that are good for your body.
