Menopause and Lack of Sleep
Posted by Stephanie on 8th Jul 2019
It’s well known that one of the many unsavory side effects of menopause is overheating (hot flashes). These flashes of overwhelming heat can happen at any time, and are frequently uncomfortable, sometimes embarrassing, and definitely annoying.
During the day it’s easy enough to use different methods for cooling down and getting comfortable. Getting a glass of ice water, taking a cool shower, and grabbing a towel from the freezer, are quick and easy remedies. Unfortunately, none of these basic measures make a lot of sense when you need to be asleep. So, how can you possibly get restful and uninterrupted sleep? Well, if you continuously wake from menopausal overheating there are changes you can make to your bed and pillow to achieve cooler sleep.
If you feel as if your own body heat is going to cause your bed to burst into flames at any moment, a cooling memory foam mattress may be your ticket to sleeping cooler. The Ultraplush mattress is made with thoroughly tested memory foam, which helps eliminate nervous tension due to uncontrollable hormonal swings. More importantly, the cooling gel helps you fall asleep and stay temperature neutral throughout the night.
Love your cozy bed, but feel like you are sweltering in the Sahara and can’t get comfy? Women of menopausal age quite often already own a comfortable and quality mattress that offers the perfect amount of support. The only problem faced now is enjoying that perfect bed, but with cooling benefits. This scenario would best benefit from a cooling memory foam mattress topper. This Gel-Infused memory foam topper utilizes gel-infused technology to ensure that you sleep comfortably throughout the night without waking from overheating.
Head feeling like the sun with the ability to power the rotation of multiple plants? There is such a thing as the “cool side” of the pillow. In fact, the Double Airflow pillow is nothing but cool throughout. This refreshing air-infused memory foam pillow has multiple levels of ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. Memory foam with continuous airflow provides temperature-controlled sleep, and ventilated mesh trim keeps your head and neck feeling light as air so you get the relaxing, and cooling, sleep you need.
Menopause is no laughing matter when it interferes with getting enough rest to feel as “normal” as possible. While there are many solutions for relieving the internal raging inferno felt throughout the day, providing cooling relief at night, when you need some desperate shut-eye, can be also be accomplished.
