Three top tips to help improve your sleep in the heat:
1) Limit Your Exposure to Sunlight at Night-time
You can trick your body into thinking it’s time to wind down by limiting your exposure to sunlight. Draw the curtains to make the indoors darker so you can help the production of melatonin to make yourself feel sleepy. If you have to go outside, wear sunglasses so that you don’t get a boost in alertness from the sunlight.
2) Have A Healthy Sleeping Environment
Your bedroom should be dark, cool, and quiet – this is the best sleeping environment for the best sleep. Make your room dark by investing in blockout curtains. Your bedding and pyjamas should be light linens as they’re more breathable and will make you sweat less. Have a lower tog duvet and consider investing in cooling pillows or mattress protectors. These are designed with thermo-regulating fabric that removes excess heat, and then releases it if your body temperature begins to drop. Think about having a fan in the bedroom, too.
3) Take Time to Relax
Summer can be the busiest season as it’s when people socialise more. However, don’t forget to set aside some time for you to relax. Spending an hour winding down before going to bed is a great way to tell your body that it’s time to think about going to sleep. Read a book, listen to relaxing music, or have a soothing bath. Staying away from your phone, tablet, laptop, or even your TV will also help you relax.
