There really is nothing worse is there? Tossing and turning all night because you are just too hot! Leg out the cover, trying your best to lay still in the hope that it will cool you down but unable to resist the urge to move to a different part of the bed hoping it is cooler. Then you spend the next day yawning into your coffee cup and pretty much walking through your day like a zombie! It’s not ideal.
However, there are a few things you can do to try and keep your cool at night, plus, we think we might just be able to help you too!
How you ask? Well, here are a few tips to help you keep your body temperature down first:
- Leave a window slightly open – common sense, yes? But you’d be surprised how many people actually don’t do this, and, one of the main reasons why they don’t might surprise you even more… because they are scared bugs and spiders will get in! Of course, they could do, but it’s unlikely to happen if you just leave your window open slightly. You’ll find this is a great way to cool down the temperature in your bedroom, so forget about the bugs and crack open that window!
- Invest in a fan – yep, this really is great. You often find that during heat waves, no matter how hard you try you just cannot get hold of a fan because everywhere is sold out. So, it’s best to get one as soon as you can and keep this in a cupboard, so it is ready to grab whenever you need it. Fans are great for keeping you cool in bed; you just need to learn to ignore the slight sound they make. They can dry your mouth out a bit though, so make sure you’ve got a glass of water within reach.
- Keep still – hard to do when you’re uncomfortable and agitated because of the heat, but all that moving around only increases your body temperature. Laying still is one of the most natural ways to cool your body down, so try and focus on this. Get yourself in a comfortable position and just try to relax.
- Use a sheet, not a duvet – if you are one of those people who just can’t get to sleep unless you are in the covers, try buying a sheet or thin throw for over for the summer months. You can sleep on top of your duvet and put your sheet/throw over you instead. It really does make a difference!
- Have some water – drink some cold water before you go to bed and always have a glass within arms reach whilst you are actually in bed. The water will help cool your body down before you get in bed, and if you wake up hot during the night you can top yourself back up.
