Creating a consistent bedtime routine can be helpful. As an example, avoid caffeine, screens, etc. for 1 hour before bed. Brush your teeth at the same time every night. Get into bed at the same time every night. Read in bed for 30 minutes. Consistency pays off in the long run.
If you wake up sweating in the middle of the night, have a sip of cold water. Keeping cold water on your nightstand (or next to your bed) will come in handy when waking up. This will keep you hydrated and will provide some relief.
Turn down the thermostat at night. Creating a cool environment for yourself is very important, as it's proven that our bodies need to be a certain temperature in order to fall asleep. Keeping a fan running in your room will help circulate air and keep you cooler.
As you age, your body changes. You may not sleep as well as you used to, and that's okay. As you age you lose melatonin so may not require as much sleep as you used to. Adjusting your routine (e.g. going to bed later) may assist with waking at the correct time.
Heavy comforters will increase your night sweats and hot flashes. Sleep with a cool / thin comforter that releases your night sweats rather than trapping them. Sleeping with cotton sheets will also help in the moisture wicking process. If you have a partner that likes it hot while you like it cool, consider using a dual sided duvet, such as the Twovet Comforter.
"For some women, night sweats are highly disruptive to sleep. They may have to get up in the middle of the night to change their clothing or bedding," says Dr. Shives (UC San Diego Department of Medicine).
We get it, we've been there!
That's why we created a dual-sided comforter designed specifically for women who find themselves overheating at night - while their partner stays comfortable.
With our revolutionary Twovet Comforter, there is no need to get out of bed to add or remove layers, no arguing over the thermostat - just a full night's of rest.
The cool (thin) side will release the steam you produce at night with its unique moisture wicking technology, and will keep you comfortable, while keeping your partner warm at the same time.
“We have different body temps so I love the light side and he loves the heavier weight for warmth. We got rid of our down comforter as soon as we received this. I have passed this on to many of our friends because I cannot keep it a secret on how great it is!"

“Now I can sleep comfortably without all that excess weight and heat and Mike can keep his weight on HIS side ONLY! I've had to endure a heap of covers on our bed because my husband loves the weight when he sleeps."

“This comforter keeps me cool and keeps my husband warm. Worth every penny to have a comfortable sleeping situation for both of us. If there is any doubt in your mind, let this review convince you otherwise."

“Bigger bed means a new Twovet! Husband and I loved our first Twovet so much we had to get a King size for the new bed. Now our guests get to enjoy the queen Twovet. Thanks for this amazing creation!"
