tips for sleeping in the heat of summer
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.
Fans can help shift air through your bedroom. Place a portable fan near an open window and leave your bedroom door open so air can move through your house.
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. Try placing your pillowcase in a zip lock bag and place it in the freezer for a few minutes before bed. You can also try placing your feet in cool water before bed.
