How to sleep in hot weather

Getting a good night’s sleep can feel particularly difficult during the summer with long, light evenings coupled with allergies to deal with on top of the hot weather.

 How to sleep in hot weather

‘Our temperature is incredibly important to good quality sleep as a drop in heart rate and drop in core temperature are part of the process the body goes through when readying for sleep,’ an article from Metro explains.

Allow the air to flow

While keeping the windows in your bedroom open might be fairly obvious if the room is warm, we advise that keeping your room door open and windows in other rooms of your home will allow more air to flow around the space – and keep everything as cool as possible: Ensure there is a good airflow through the house so open windows on both side to allow the air to pass through.

Have a cool bath or shower before bed

Having a cool (or if you can stand it, cold) bath or shower before going to bed will encourage your core temperature to drop, meaning that you won’t be as hot before getting in to bed and will hopefully find it easier to drift off to sleep, even if it’s a warm evening.

Keep the heat out

Close blinds and curtains in rooms that are exposed to direct sunlight. The shade will help the room stay cooler. It’s important to do this early on in the day, so that when the sun is at its highest and hottest in the middle of the day, the rooms in your home stay as cool as possible.
