Muslin Regulates Body Temperature & Why It Is So Important for Your Sleep Quality

We promote Gray Heron's breathability and the ability of Gray Heron muslin to help regulate your body temperature, but what does that really mean and why is it important?

Regulating body temperature plays a crucial role in promoting restful sleep. Our body's natural sleep-wake cycle is closely linked to our body temperature, and the temperature tends to follow a typical pattern throughout a 24-hour cycle. Typically, our body temperature decreases gradually throughout the evening, reaching its lowest point in the early hours of the morning. Regulating body temperature during sleep can help improve sleep quality in the following ways:


1. Fall asleep more easily: As the body temperature drops, it sends a signal to the brain that it's time for sleep. If the bedroom is too warm, it can interfere with this cooling process and make it harder to fall asleep. By keeping the bedroom cool, it can help initiate the natural temperature drop and promote a more relaxed state, making it easier to fall asleep.  Using a Gray Heron blanket allows for air flow between your room and your body.  Especially in warmer climates, we highly recommend using a gray heron as your only blanket (you can layer them if you need a bit more thickness) to allow for optimal breathability. 


2. Sleep more soundly: Our body's core temperature affects the quality of sleep we get. An overly warm environment can cause sweating, disturbed sleep and waking up during the night. During colder months, a warm bed or wearing warm, comfortable clothing can help maintain a consistent temperature and prevent the body from becoming too cold, yet coupling these clothing layers with a Gray Heron will prevent you from waking up at night with all of those layers. This helps facilitate a more comfortable sleep environment and promotes deeper, more restful sleep.


3. Wake up refreshed: Waking up to a hot or cold environment can cause stress and trigger an alarm response that makes it harder to wake up feeling refreshed. Maintaining a comfortable temperature during sleep can help promote a more comfortable sleep environment and increase the likelihood of waking up feeling refreshed.  Your Gray Heron allows for the best night's sleep helping to ensure you fall asleep and stay asleep. 


In conclusion, regulating body temperature plays an integral role in promoting a restful sleep environment. Maximizing comfort and increasing body temperature can help facilitate a deeper sleep and make it easier to stay asleep throughout the night.  We hope you will consider a Gray Heron organic muslin blanket to help you and your family optimize your family's sleep each night.
