SLEEP BETTER AND LONGER
beat the night sweats
Night sweats impact more people than we might believe, a UK study has shown that a third of patients that visit their local doctor complains of night sweats. Though sweating at night is common, it unfortunately has a very negative impact on our sleep quality and sleep duration. To enjoy a restorative sleep we need to keep the ideal temperature for sleeping, when our temperature fluctuates our deep sleep phases in particular suffer. If we get too warm we start to sweat and afterwards we often become cold and start to shiver.
WHY DO WE SWEAT AT NIGHT?
To sweat is normal, it’s part of our bodies’ thermoregulation process and helps to cool us down as the moisture evaporates from our skin.
Our body is made of water, 60% is actually water. We have over 4 million sweat glands that enable us to regulate our temperature. We actually sweat constantly, even when we are inactive and even if the ambient temperature isn’t high. We loose up to 2.5 liters of fluid each day and during one night we sweat on average a full cup of perspiration.
To stop sweating isn’t desirable but we want to avoid excessive sweating at night and there are measure we can take.
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT NIGHT SWEATS?
There are actions we can take to alleviate sweating at night and to keep the best temperature for sleep.
Food and drinks Foods that are hard to digest like high-fat or protein foods, can make us sweat at night so are best avoided. This include read meat and fried foods. Spicy food can also cause sweating in sleep. Alcohol can seem as good sleeping pill however it’s linked to both night sweats as well as lower quality sleep. Reducing any late-night drinking could help to reduce sweating at night.
Smoking and inhaling second hand smoke can increase sweating at night.
Choose the right time for sports: exercising is great for our sleep quality but you want to avoid doing sports just before sleep as elevates our temperature.
Ice down. If you tend to get warm during the night you can keep a glass of ice water next to your bed and have a cold facecloth available in case you wake up feeling overheated.
Cool down your bedroom: breathing in cold air supports our sleep as it helps to reduce our core body temperature. Keeping our bedrooms below 18 C/ 64 F also helps to avoid night sweats.
Pajamas for night sweats that help regulate temperature and moisture: Breathable pajamas help us to release excess heat and moisture wicking pajamas ensure that we don’t get wet and then cold during the night.
The gender difference
Night sweats men versus night sweats women
There are distinct differences between how men and women sleep. The circadian rhythm is different, by measuring the melatonin levels and body temperatures scientists have established that men’s circadian clock is set to one hour later than women. This means that men tend to fall asleep later and wake up later than women.
The sweat patterns and reasons behind night sweats are also different. We have the same amount of sweat glands but men sweat more efficiently than women and tend to sweat more. The reason behind sweating in sleep also differ:
For women night sweats are often linked to the hormonal levels and cycles throughout the life. Menstruation, pregnancy and menopause can lead to increased sweating while sleeping. Women don’t only experience hot flashes at night during menopause but also have a similar experience of flushes during pregnancy. With the right menopause sleepwear and nursing sleepwear the effects can be alleviated though.
Night sweats men is often caused by life style choices relating to diet, alcohol intake and smoking. However, men in general sweat more when sleeping and athletes/ people doing regular sports also tend to sweat more often. That’s because our bodies are more efficient at cooling down, however the result can be clingy and wet sleepwear which lower our sleep quality. With the best pajamas for night sweats we can sleep deeper and longer.
