How High Humidity Affects Sleep And What To Do About It

The country is often divided in the summer between those who love the hot and weather and those who pray for rain and fresher conditions so they can get a better night’s sleep. If you belong to the latter camp, fear not there is a lot you can do to reduce heat and humidity in the bedroom.

The first thing to look at in an uncomfortable hot and humid bedroom is the type of sheets you are using. There is always an option to have no sheets on the bed at all during hot weather, but this can sometimes leave you susceptible to feeling the chill of early morning if conditions suddenly change.

The best way to cool things down therefore is to invest in cotton sheets, that are far more breathable than synthetic fabrics. Also avoid silk which can really raise the temperature.

Replacing your mattress can also help a lot. Memory foam for example moulds to your body via the heat you naturally produce and this has the effect of trapping that heat which is not ideal in hot humid conditions. Opting for a mattress type that doesn’t trap heat can make the world of difference.

Another practical way to reduce humidity is to invest in a de-humidifier. While some humidity in the room is actually good for you, if humidity gets to high it is impossible for moisture to evaporate, which prevents us from cooling down. A good dehumidifier will stop this happening.
