Try to avoid heat build-up in your house during the day. Close the curtains to block out the sun and close the windows if the temperature outside is higher than it is inside.

Layering is everything in a great winter bed - layering also allows you to introduce different textures and colours that can be easily changed.

Choose cotton bedsheets and light, loose cotton pyjamas. These prevent you from getting too hot and can wick away sweat.

Take a cool shower before going to bed; this helps bring down your core body temperature, which aids the relaxation process.

Help cool your head, hands and feet at bedtime. Place your pillow case in a zip lock bag and place it in the freezer for a few minutes before bed. Place your feet in cool water before bed and keep your hands and feet out of the bedsheets.
