It’s that time of year, folks. The days are getting longer, most of the world springs forward, signs of life start to appear in your garden. But what of your sleep setup? Surely your comfort needs in throes of spring are different than in the depths of winter? We’ve got you covered. Here are the spring swaps we are making to stay cool and comfy.
Jersey sheets > Percale sheets
First things first: sheets. There’s nothing like the soft coziness of Jersey Sheets to curl up in during winter, but who wants that when the weather starts to turn? Switch them out for a crisp cotton Percale, (and get those light linens ready for summer!)
Duvet > Quilt
The dense, fluffy, down duvet is our savior throughout the colder part of the year. In fact, we love it so much it becomes hard to leave it on the bed. The duvet became a feature for movie nights and the occasional (video off) zoom meeting too this year, but it’s time to pack it away. What’s our alternative of choice? Well, there are always lighter duvet options, but we love a good quilt too.
Flannel PJs > Summer PJs
Anybody else have a tradition of getting some soft pajamas for Christmas? Personally, I’d be super upset if I didn’t, but that doesn’t mean they deserve to be in rotation until next year. Swap out the flannel for something sleeker, throw a robe on it, and pretend you’re the star of an old french movie when you step out in the sunshine to sip your coffee.
Slippers > At-home pedicure
Ok, so this one isn’t a like-for-like swap. But is it time to get those tootsies ready to brave the world? Oh yeah. They’ve probably been caged all winter, confined to socks, slippers, and snow boots. Soon enough, summer will come knocking and you want feet ready for barefoot adventures in waterfalls, on beaches, and hanging out of a hammock! Here’s an at-home pampering kit to indulge those toes.
Fuzzy mask > Silky mask
You all know by now that I am an eye mask connoisseur. If like me, you happen to have multiple sleep masks, it’s time to swap from your fluffy winter mask to your silky spring mask. If you don’t, I recommend something silky and lightweight, big enough to block out the light of that earlier dawn.
Winter scent > Spring scent
The ultimate sleepscape covers all of the senses. There are a few different ways to scent your room, from room sprays to pillow sprays to diffusers. If you utilize any of these (lavender to induce sleep, anyone?) put away the cedar and cinnamon and bust out some fresh spring smells.
Weighted blanket > Cooling pad
Now I know that some of us are lost without our weighted blankets all year round. In which case, you can always switch to one of these cooling options. However, if you are more interested in keeping your temperature comfortable, a chili blanket will take that to the next level.
