The British summer is soaring. We all love ice cream and picnics, but the high temperatures can disrupt our sleep. Sometimes even opening all the windows and using a fan doesn’t make a big difference. In this blog, we’ll go through the things you can do to sleep better in the heat.
1. Stay Hydrated
In the middle of a heatwave, it’s always best to stay hydrated with cool water. Your body is sweating throughout the day and by drinking water, you are replenishing the fluids lost from all the sweating. Carry a bottle of water with you and stay hydrated as it also helps to sleep better in the heat.
2. Stay Active
We feel you. The heatwave does exhaust our energy levels. You’d be forgiven for thinking napping restores our energy but it will make sleep difficult at night. Instead, you should stay active by going for walks and even for a jog. You will get better sleep if you feel tired.
3. Use Less Electricity In Your Room
If you’re not watching TV, turn it off because it will only spread more heat around your room. You want to prevent heat from building up in your room so use less electricity. At night-time, open your windows to allow the air to circulate all around.
4. Lower Your Body Temperature
Before you go to sleep, go for a quick cool shower so your body’s temperature goes down. Not only do cool showers help you to sleep better in the heat but they also have health benefits as they help improve blood circulation and help the muscle recover.
5. Choose The Right Bedding
We all love the smell of fresh bedding, and it does make for a cosy sleep so make sure you are washing your bedding regularly in the summer. If you need help, just get in touch with Laundryheap and we’ll launder it for you!
Summer is usually welcomed with open arms as it presents a lot of fun activities. However, it’s important you follow these 5 tips to sleep better in the heat. Sleep is important for the mind and to stay productive the next day.
We hope you have a great weekend!
