How to keep cool at night in a heatwave

How to keep cool at night in a heatwave

Keep-cool-at-night

When we have a summer that is as hot as this present one, getting a good night’s sleep can be almost impossible unless you have the luxury of air-conditioning. And with this latest heatwave, the first to warrant a red warning heat alert from the Met office, the biggest challenge is the night-time temperatures which can remain in the mid 20s, and even higher in London and the South East.

It is especially difficult for older people and those with medical conditions but it can also affect younger people and those in good health because the intensity and longevity of the heat makes it’s very difficult for our body to regulate its own temperature particularly in bringing it down when the outdoor temperature is above the level of our natural body temperature. This is why the hot weather advice is to stay indoors, out of the sun and keep hydrated.

An Airflow mattress topper is a great, cost-effective way to regulate your body temperature

So, when it comes to getting a restful night’s sleep the good news is that you don’t have to invest in an expensive air conditioning unit. Buying a quality memory foam mattress is a great, cost effective way to regulate your body temperature.

12 cool sleeping tips

  1. Make sure that as soon as you get up, close your windows and blinds. Only open the window just before dawn to let in the coolest air of the day or if its cooler late at night, open the windows to let a cooling breeze through the house.
  2. Wear loose clothing, ideally natural fabrics such as cotton and linen.
  3. Have a cool shower before going to bed.
  4. Place ice cubes on pulse points such as your wrist, forehead and under your arms will this will help you cool down more quickly.
  5. Put your feet in a bucket of cold water before you get into bed or put a pair of socks in the freezer and put them on before you get into bed.
  6. Place a bowl of icy water in front of a fan in the bedroom which will help to create a cool breeze and direct it at your top half of your bed.
  7. Freeze a face cloth and place it on your face to get rid of that hot and sticky feeling.
  8. Freeze a hot water bottle and use it as a compress on your face, neck or feet.
  9. Avoid eating close to your usual bedtime, especially meals that are rich and hot as this will raise your resting body temperature. And too much alcohol can lead to dehydration, headaches and disturbed sleep so try a calming herbal or fruit tea instead.
  10. Switch off any electrical equipment in your bedroom as they generate extra heat.
  11. If you’re still struggling, move to the lowest level of the house. The further down you go, the cooler it gets.
  12. Last thing before you retire to bed, open any windows at the top of the house to allow hot air to escape, as heat rises.

Best Sleeping Positions for a Good Night’s Sleep

Best Sleeping Positions for a Good Night’s Sleep

Best-Sleeping-Positions

Sleep is an important part of our lives. And your sleeping position can play a big part in the quality of sleep that you have.

Different sleeping positions provide different benefits. For example, if you’re experiencing any kind of pain or certain health conditions, you might need to change your sleeping position to help manage this. And, whilst it might not be something you can change over night, changing your usual sleep position could make a difference.

Taking the time to gradually train yourself to sleep in a new position could be the secret to improving your sleep quality. If that seems too difficult then you can try modifying your usual sleeping position to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.

Fetal position

The fetal position involves sleeping on your side with legs curled in toward your body. It is the most popular sleeping position as it’s great for lower back pain or pregnancy, and it can also help reduce snoring.

When trying the fetal position, if it is new to you, make sure your posture is relatively relaxed, otherwise your position could limit deep breathing whilst you’re asleep. Putting a pillow between your knees can help. Also, if you have any issues with joint pain or stiffness, sleeping in a tight fetal position might leave you feeling sore in the morning.

Sleeping on your side

Sleeping on your side is similar to sleeping in the fetal position, but in this instance your legs aren’t pulled in toward your body. Sleeping on your side can help to reduce snoring, and it’s great for aiding digestion and may even reduce heartburn. And if you suffer from lower back pain then putting a pillow between your lower legs will help.

If you prefer sleeping on your side, choose a good pillow to avoid getting neck and back pain and sleep on whichever side feels most comfortable.

Lying on your stomach

Sleeping lying on your stomach may be less common. While it’s a good position for those who suffer from snoring or sleep apnea, the benefits don’t extend much further. Unfortunately, sleeping on your stomach can cause both neck and back pain as it can also add a lot of unnecessary strain to your muscles and joints, which is why you might wake up sore and tired.

If this is your preferred sleeping position then try sleeping with a thinner pillow or no pillow to reduce the stain on your neck.

Flat on your back

Sleeping on your back provides the most health benefits. It protects your spine, and it can also help relieve hip and knee pain.

Sleeping on your back uses gravity to keep your body in an even alignment over your spine. This can help reduce any unnecessary pressure on your back or joints. A pillow behind your knees may help support the natural curve of the back.

In addition, sleeping on your back protects the skin on your face from wrinkling.

However, if you suffer from snoring or sleep apnea then sleeping on your back won’t improve your quality of sleep It can also be difficult for anyone with back pain, which is why it’s important to make sure you’re properly supported.

Check your mattress

As everybody has different needs and sleeping styles, your mattress may be affecting your quality of sleep. Whether you prefer to feel firmly supported or nestled in luxurious softness, we can make your bed a dream destination.
