Most of us have endured the discomfort of trying to sleep during hot, sticky summer nights.

Thankfully, there are many different measures you can take to avoid those sleepless nights spent tossing and turning this summer and maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night. 

Delve into these top tips for getting better sleep during the summer:

There’s a reason why your summer wardrobe consists mainly of cotton. This is because cotton is a lightweight breathable material which absorbs moisture from the skin immediately and keeps you dry. 

It is a good idea to make the switch to cotton bedding as it is the most cooling material to sleep in. 

Surprisingly, hot baths are great for cooling down your body temperature. Hot baths are the most beneficial if taken prior to but not immediately before bedtime. 

Your body temperature will decrease after you leave the bath as your body adapts to the cooler environment. As an added bonus, baths promote feelings of relaxation that can help you fall asleep more quickly.

Keeping your blinds closed during the day helps to reduce heat buildup. This can actually make a substantial difference to the temperature of your room at night time. 

Consider investing in blackout curtains for an even more effective barrier against the sun. 

While we all know how important it is to stay hydrated throughout the day, is it even more vital that you drink more water during the hotter months as your body will be working twice as hard to work in the heat.

However, try to drink the majority of your daily fluid intake in the morning, because drinking in the evening can lead you to need the toilet several times during the night. 

One way to guarantee a good night's sleep in the summer is by investing in a reliable home aircon unit.

Now couldn’t be a better time to invest in a home air conditioning unit following the government's announcement earlier this year that VAT on residential aircon installations has been reduced to 0%.

This means a significant saving for you and the perfect time to prevent those sleepless, summer nights from ever happening again.
