I remember teasing W- about how he wears a toque to bed. (It’s a small, brimless hat also known as a beanie.) Several winter months later, I’m a convert to the cause.
Wearing a hat to bed is an excellent way to keep your ears warm. This means less work tucking yourself in and fewer late-night struggles with blankets.
A hat also doubles as a handy sleep mask that keeps the light out if someone else wants to stay up late reading. Just pull your hat down over your eyes. A little bit of light may come in on either side of your nose, but the reduction in light may be enough to let you sleep easily.
A warm hat, fuzzy socks, flannel pajamas, and microfleece sheets – that should see me through the last gasps of winter and into spring. Slowly getting the hang of this!
