Sleep Cool And Comfortable This Summer
The majority of us have endured the discomfort of trying to get to sleep on a really hot night and just end up tossing and turning which leads to a sleepless night.
Now that summer is here in Australia, we are sure to have a few really hot humid nights ahead.
Rest assured though there are many different measures you can take in the bedroom to keep you cool while you get a restful night’s sleep without overheating.
- Avoid keeping the curtains or blinds open all-day
By keeping the sunlight out of the room will help the room keep cool, especially on those really hot days.
- Investing in the right pillow
Investing in the right pillow in summer is so important for a good night sleep especially for those who are hot sleepers. Check out our cooling or ice pillow range.
- Natural Bedding
Bedding that is made from natural fibers such as bamboo, cotton, or linen offers more breathability than those that are made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester.
At the Manchester Factory, our number #1 Selling sheets are the Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton Sheets. Not only are these sheets incredibly soft to touch they are more breathable then and allows the heat to escape which keeps you from warm at night. These sheets are naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and moisture reducing all leading to a cooler night’s sleep.
- Using a Summer Quilt
Upgrade your super warm winter quilts to a lightweight summer quilt. We recommend the Sienna living Bamboo Quilt for summer which features a 200gsm 100% bamboo filling which is ideal for those who don’t want the weight of the blanket.
Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, odour-resistant, chemical-free, dust mite, and mould resistant making it an excellent choice for allergy sufferers.
We rate this quilt warmth 1 out of 5 blankets ultimately making it a perfect option for summer.
- Using a bedside fan or air-conditioning
When using a fan a little tip is to position the fan across from a window so the wind from the outside combines with the fan to make a cooling breeze.
- Stay Hydrated
At any time if you aren’t hydrated your body temperature will rise as your body doesn’t have enough fluid to sweat and regulate core body temperature. So simply have a glass of water before bed and keep one next to your bed.
- Cold Showers
Not only will they clean the clamminess off the day they will also bring down your temperature.
Avoid strenuous exercise before going to sleep
Exercise is a great way to improve your overall quality of sleep. However strenuous exercise close to going to may keep your body temperature.
