Sleeping In The Heat Of Summer

How are you sleeping in this hot and humid weather? Well it is Summer but it is amazing how we always forget how uncomfortable it can be sleeping in this heat. Could your bedlinen be the key to a better nights sleep?

Sleeping in the heat of summer

Here are a few helpful tips for sleeping in the heat of summer:

  1. Use a Coolmax mattress protector or topper: These products are designed to regulate body temperature and provide a cooler and drier sleeping surface.
  2. Use a portable air conditioner or fan: If you don't have central air conditioning, a portable air conditioner or fan can help circulate cool air in your bedroom.
  3. Use blackout curtains: In addition to keeping your curtains closed during the day, using blackout curtains can block out sunlight and help keep your room cooler.
  4. Use a chilled water bottle: Fill a hot water bottle with cold water and place it in your bed before you go to sleep. This can provide a cool and soothing sensation.
  5. Sleep in breathable clothing: opt for lightweight and breathable sleepwear made from natural fibres like cotton or linen.
  6. Create a cross breeze: If you have windows on opposite sides of your bedroom, open them to create a cross breeze that can help cool down the room.
  7. Use a cooling pillow: Look for pillows specifically designed to keep you cool, such as those made with cooling gel or memory foam.
  8. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and help regulate your body temperature.
  9. Use a sleep mask: If you're sensitive to light, using a sleep mask can help block out any remaining light and promote better sleep.
  10. Keep electronics away from your bed: Electronics generate heat, so keeping them away from your bed can help keep your sleeping area cooler.

Remember, everyone's preferences and needs are different, so it's important to find what works best for you.

However, I can provide you with some tips and suggestions for creating a summer-ready bedroom.

  1. Opt for breathable fabrics: Coolmax or Pure Cotton is a great choice for bedlinen during the summer as it is made from absorbent fibres and helps regulate body temperature. It keeps you cool and comfortable during hot nights. Another option is super soft Egyptian or Pima cotton, which is also breathable and perfect for summer months.
  2. Consider blackout curtains: If you prefer a darker room for better sleep during bright summer mornings, blackout curtains are a great option. They block out sunlight and help keep your room cool during the day.
  3. Coordinate colours: Choose bed linen and curtains that complement each other and create a cohesive look in your bedroom. Colour coordination can enhance the overall aesthetic and create a calm and cozy atmosphere.
  4. Minimalist approach: During summer, it's best to keep your bedroom decor minimal. Remove heavy blankets or throws and opt for lighter bedding options. Decluttering your space can help create a more open and airy feel.
  5. Use fans or air conditioning: While choosing the right bed linen and curtains can help keep your bedroom cool, it's also important to have proper ventilation. Use fans or air conditioning to maintain a comfortable temperature during hot summer nights.

Remember, the goal is to create a comfortable and relaxing environment in your bedroom during the summer months. Enjoy the sun and have a great summer!
