Cool Down

Hot at night. Yuck. Two-three times per week I will wake up hot and sweaty; not the drenched-through-my-clothes-and-sheets sweaty, but hot and sweaty enough to be uncomfortable. We set our thermostat for 70 degrees at night; I don’t sleep with heavy blankets.

The past two nights I have taken one teaspoon of gelatin, a natural supplement that is believed to potentially help with sleep, mixed in hot water, about an hour before bed. I have not woken up hot and sweaty since. I think it’s too early to make an actual conclusion, but I’m hopeful that this lovely trend will continue.
