(I'm not sure if lifehacks is the best category for this, but it's the best I could find.) For a long time now, I've thrown my blankets off myself while I'm sleeping. I know I toss and turn in my sleep, and this results in me being cold in the morning. I hate myself doing this and I want to stop. I absolutely hate pajamas so that's not an option for me. I don't know how I can stop this, or if I can stop this at all. Please help!
I don't want to turn this into WebMD but I think your question should be treated as more than a life hack. I would consult with a doctor since what you are experiencing sounds like a reaction to something else. To quote Dr. Rosenberg
- "There are many reasons for tossing and turning. These include sleep apnea, chronic pain, periodic limb movement and acid reflux to name a few. Others include the bedroom environment being too warm or having too much light. In addition, excessive alcohol, caffeine and heavy meals before bed can lead to restless sleep." Maybe explore the cause rather than "hack" it. Hope this helps :)
I had the same problem, until I moved to Europe and discovered the duvet!. A duvet is like a comforter except that it has a cover that you launder. And the cover is typically made of the same type of fabric as sheets are, s it's comfortable against your skin.
Although you can have both a top sheet and a duvet, many people don't. I just use the duvet in place of a top sheet, because if I used both, the duvet might slide off when I turn over. Because there's just one layer, I find it easy to keep it on me while I sleep.
I find that a duvet helps me to stay at a comfortable temperature throughout the night. When the room is warm, I let the duvet just drape loosely over me. When it's cold, I pull the duvet tightly around me. I even do this (pulling it around me or leaving it loose as needed) in my sleep; it's instinctive.
Get cover clamps or at harbor freight they have these little clamps for tents and I think Walmart has also at certain times of year. I clamp two to a blanket about 2 feet away then you can use a small bungee cord to connect both ends while wrapping someplace on bed frame. I use these because I like a lot of blankets on my bed.
Apart from all answers above,
- Tryout- I would get an extra size blanket or comforter as it will reduce the frequency/probability of blanket/comforter being thrown off.
- Considerable - Pitch in the edges of blanket underneath of mattress as stated in above answer
- Avoidable - Adjusting the thermostat before and after sleep is not a good idea besides it will add a task in your routine. I would not prefer.
