The Sleep Advisors, a leading authority on sleep health, have released a comprehensive guide on how to get a good night’s sleep in hot weather. The guide outlines eight steps to follow before bedtime to ensure a restful nights sleep, even during the hottest nights.
Alex, a sleep expert at The Sleep Advisors, said, “Sleeping poorly during warm periods is avoidable. There are many simple things you can do to stay comfortable. These include taking a cold shower to reduce core temperature, avoiding spicy meals, and more. With air conditioning helping us reduce body heat, the situation is much easier. Just include these steps in your bedtime routine, and you won’t even notice it’s 30 degrees Celsius outside.”
The Sleep Advisors guide offers key advice on optimizing the sleep environment, such as choosing the coolest room in the house, replacing winter bedding with summer-appropriate ones, avoiding pets in bed, using air conditioning wisely, and opting for sheets made of natural fibers.
The guide also recommends taking a cool shower or bath, soaking feet in cold water, removing excessive clothing, avoiding strenuous exercises and spicy meals before bedtime, avoiding caffeine, ensuring proper ventilation in the room, staying hydrated, and surprisingly, drinking something warm before going to bed.
