Can’t Sleep? Cool Down Your Brain!

Can’t Sleep? Cool Down Your Brain!

Temperature is very important for sleep and falling asleep quickly. It’s been said that insomniacs and people with other sleep disorders are often unable to fall asleep, in part, due to being too warm.

Being too warm is one of the most common things that keeps people awake, and there’s a very strong link between cooling down your body and falling asleep faster.

We all know that the body always cools itself down naturally as it enters the sleep phase, and part of this process involves cooling down the brain.

Melatonin – What Is It, and What Does it Do?

Melatonin is known as the ‘sleep hormone’, it makes us feel tired and regulates sleep.

However, its production is directly tied to the temperature of your body, head, and most importantly, your brain.

The cooler you are, the more melatonin your body produces, the better your sleep.

Studies have also shown that melatonin has been linked to the prevention and treatment of cancer. To summarize:

“Melatonin also showed the potential to be utilized as adjuvant of cancer therapies, through reinforcing the therapeutic effects and reducing the side effects of chemotherapies or radiation. In clinical trials, melatonin showed the ability to enhance the therapeutic effect of various anticancer drugs, and might help improving the sleep and life quality of cancer patients. Overall, the impressive efficacy and safety of melatonin support it as a promising agent for the prevention and treatment of cancers.”

You can view the results of many of these studies here, from the US National Library of Medicine.

So, it’s clear that temperature is important for sleep, and your health in general.

However, it’s the brain that we want to target for cooling, and we’ll get to that in just a minute.

There are thousands of people around the world who suffer from sleep disorders, or have trouble falling and staying asleep.

What’s interesting is that most of them seem to have one or two things in common. Mainly, it’s to do with the temperature of their bodies as they try and fall asleep.

Trouble falling asleep due to PTSD

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is a very common reason some people find it difficult to fall asleep.

In part, it’s due to temperature.

They lay there stressed and unable to stop thinking, which in turn keeps their bodies from relaxing, generating melatonin, lowering their body temperature, and falling asleep.

Migraines and trouble falling asleep

A lot of people suffering from migraines find that the headache type pain actually stops them from falling asleep at night. This leads to them staying up tossing and turning, thus making their migraine worse.

As a result, people who suffer from headaches of all sorts can find it very hard to fall asleep at night. There are a few things you can do to relieve the symptoms of headaches, one of them being drinking more water. Interestingly one of the most common solutions or ways to treat the symptoms of migraines is to apply a cold compress to your head, which can be messy and uncomfortable.

This prescribed treatment shows that temperature, cold temperatures in particular, are very good at reducing inflammation, soothing pains, and helping you fall asleep. But are all methods of cold application created equal? Can they all efficiently cool your head to its ideal temperature? The answer is a resounding No.

What temperature is ideal for your head?

Yes, your head has an ideal temperature, but this temperature varies from person to person and from location to location. It depends on the temperature of the room, and its humidity on any given night, among other things.

Of course, you won’t fall asleep if your head is absolutely freezing, so there’s a sweet spot you’ll want to aim for.

In general, it appears that cooling your head can massively improve your sleep quality and decrease the time it takes for you to fall asleep.

This can help people with PTSD, migraines, insomnia, and just about any other sleep disorder out there.

Cooling your brain

For the most part, the problem is that it’s quite difficult to keep your body and head cool. It’s even harder to maintain this temperature throughout the night.

How does cooling your head help you sleep?

According to research presented at Sleep 2011; a meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies.

Lowering the temperature of the brain reduces the amount of time it takes for people to fall asleep at night. It also increases sleep duration, meaning more uninterrupted sleep.

Cooling the brain slows your metabolism, lowers frontal cortex activity, and stimulates the production of melatonin. The result?

You fall asleep much faster. Insomnia is almost directly linked to this part of the brain, once of it’s leading causes being and overactive frontal cortex.

But how do you cool the brain to a certain temperature and keep it that way?

Well, keeping your room slightly colder than normal, can stimulate melatonin production. This will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep. Melatonin is a very powerful sleep aid and it’s even sold over the counter in many places.

But you can’t always keep your room cold.

Your partner might not be able to sleep in such a cool room, and one of the most common problems people have is their partner over-heating or over-cooling the bed.
