The Best Sheets To Cozy Up In For Better Sleep, Expert Says

If you've found yourself looking at this article, we'll go out on a limb and assume you're not sleeping well, and you think your sheets may be part of the problem. Well, guess what? You're definitely on to something—the fabric that clings to your mattress may very well be at least partly to blame, says Chris Winter, MD, neurologist, sleep specialist, and author of The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How To Fix It. So with the help of Dr. Winter, we've rounded up the very best sheets to shop and cozy up in at home for much better sleep.

Dr. Winter explains that the right sheets are vital when it comes to getting a restorative night's rest. "Being comfortable is the foundation of good sleep. If your sheets don't feel soothing or provide good temperature regulation and moisture dissipation, you're probably not going to sleep well," he says.

To help you achieve better sleep, we asked Dr. Winter to explain what to look for when shopping for sheets—whether you sleep hot or cold—and found great options that fit the bill. Stock your cart with these sets for better snoozing. And next, be sure to check out The 6 Best Exercises for Strong and Toned Arms in 2022, Trainer Says.

If you sleep hot

Dr. Winter says that 65 degrees is the ideal temperature for a good night's rest. Cooling sheets may be a good option if your bedroom is generally warmer than this, or you tend to feel clammy no matter where you set the thermostat.

Since they allow for airflow and moisture (read: sweat) dissipation, looser-weave fabrics are generally used to make sheets for hot sleepers. Dr. Winter says linen (with a thread count between 80 and 120), polyester, cotton (with a thread count between 200 and 400), and bamboo are all excellent options. Bonus points for sheet sets with additional moisture-wicking properties.

Fall, winter, and in some cases, a very powerful AC unit can leave some of us feeling chilly when we snuggle into bed. If that's you, Dr. Winter says to look for sheets made of fabrics that restrict air movement. Materials like flannel, cashmere, microfleece, and heavier-weight cotton (400+ thread count) will trap the layer of air near your body, heat it, and keep it around you so you warm up, Dr. Winter explains.

The two options below will keep you cozy on chilly nights.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Best Smoothie Habits for Weight Loss, According to Dietitians

When it comes to trying to lose weight , most of us are rather poor math students. We mess up the addition and subtraction all the time.
