Sleep Tips for Summer: How to stay cool at summer night?
Have you ever lost sleep at night because of a heat wave? During the summer and spring, many people will feel their beds become overheated and their body temperature will rise in their sleep. It makes getting a full night of peaceful sleep more difficult as you struggle to avoid suffocating in your own bed.
The lack of sleep will be harmful to our physical and mental health, triggering the irritation, headache, brain fog and fatigue as well as other ill effects. But don't worry, in this article we'll provide you with solutions for you to stay cool at night and get a good night's sleep.
Eat nothing or light meals before bedtime
The most recommended action is to stop consuming food within three hours before bedtime. If you can't combat hunger, then choose foods that help you sleep as much as possible, such as juices, salads or fruits.
If you consume a lot of heavy foods such as carbohydrates and fats before bedtime, it will cause your body to use energy for the digestive process and cause night sweats that will affect your sleep quality
Take a warm bath before bed
Taking a warm bath can help lower your body temperature and calm you down, which will allow you to fall asleep more quickly.
Notice that the water temperature should not be too high or too low. Too hot water may raise the temperature of your bathroom and cause your room to become hotter. On the other hand, too cold water may stimulate your body causing you to have a harder time falling asleep.
Prepare a frozen water bottle
Prepare a bottle filled with water and put it in the fre r in advance. Place this bottle as an ice pack on your head or neck, or put it next to your bed to cool your sleeping space.
Pick a right pillow
Sleeping with a traditional pillow can lead to sweating and heat at night. Try replacing your pillow with a modern temperature-regulating pillow that can adjust to the room temperature helping you stay in cool.

Keep your room cross-ventilated
