Warm weather keeping you up? Us too. We know there’s just nothing more frustrating than not being able to sleep during the heat - as the temperature increases, the amount of time we spend tossing and turning tends to increase too, but not to worry, here are some clever tips and tricks that can help our minds and bodies switch off this summer...
- Use a wet towel: During those warmer nights, a wet towel is going to be your new bestie. Try soaking an old towel in water and hanging it in front of an open window in your house or even in front of your fan. This ensures that any air flowing through your space will pick up the cool moisture from the twel and circulate it round the room.
- Pop your pillowcase in the freezer: Sounds sort of bizarre doesn’t it? But this handy little trick does actually work! Simply grab your pillowcase of choice, pop it in a bag and then pop the bag into the freezer for 15 minutes and voila, there’s now no need to repeatedly find the ‘cool side’ of your pillow during the night.
- Keep your curtains and blinds shut: The simplest tip of them all - keeping your curtains and blinds closed throughout the day will provide you with some major benefits when it comes to hitting the hay. By doing so, you’ll ensure that the heat from the sun doesn’t shine through into your bedroom, causing it to overheat.
- Swap out the heavy duty duvets for lighter, airy sheets: We know you might have some type of deep, emotional attachment to your favourite nighttime duvet but it’s time to opt for a sheet and say goodbye to your beloved comfort blanket this season. Simply remove the sheet from your duvet and use the sheet to sleep with, we promise it’s a game changer!
- Stay hydrated: Our final tip is to stay hydrated throughout the day. Many people don’t realise that drinking water regularly during the daytime, leads to a cooler night's sleep during the night time. So, nextime you decide to skip that extra refill of your favourite water bottle, remember that this too, could lead you to a deep, delightful slumber...
