How to improve your sleep in the heat
It is officially summer. The hot weather continues to intensify and many have experienced one of the warmest nights ever with highs in the mid-20s in parts of the UK. Lack of sleep has many effects on the body- from poor balance to trouble with thinking and concentration which are essential during periods of weather that causes drowsiness. With temperatures continuing to rise, it has been incredibly difficult to attain a sufficient period of rest during the night. Here are some suggestions for overcoming the heat this season:
Use thin sheets
While reducing your bedding, keep coverings nearby. Sweat can be absorbed by thin cotton sheets. No matter how warm your bedroom is, during the night your body temperature will drop. Both linen and cotton are excellent choices for bedding when it's hot outside. They are made of remarkably breathable natural fibres (cotton is cotton, while linen is made from the flax plant), which is essential for staying cool.
exercise early in the day
Exercise has several health benefits for the body, and it has been proven to increase the quantity and quality of sleep at night. It also eases stress and exhausts the body, laying the groundwork for sleep. While exercising, ensure that you consistently remain hydrated with a bottle(s) of water.
Avoid napping during the day
Taking a nap throughout the day may delay falling asleep, making you more attentive at night. Stay as awake for as long as you can and let your exhaustion out later in the evening, despite how tempting it may be to give in to sluggishness and go to sleep
Have a cool shower before bedtime
Just before going to bed, take a bath or a shower to unwind your body and mind. Your body can reach the appropriate temperature range for a restful night's sleep thanks to the dip in body temperature that occurs after you take a shower.
