As summer approaches, the days are getting longer and subsequently, nights are getting warmer.

Get A Good Routine Going

The first step in getting your sleep schedule a little better is to get in a good routine to start with. Having a set wake up time and bedtime can help you regulate your sleep, making sure you are getting the right amount of hours too. This is a good first start in helping you to sleep better.

Lightweight Bedding Materials

When the heat is getting too much for you in the evenings, it can often be your bedding that is causing you to overheat.  It might be wise to have a second set of lightweight bedding to keep you cooler during the summer.


You can invest in duvets that are designed to regulate your temperature, or opt for a duvet that is generally lighter overall.

Avoid Heavy Meals

This may sound like a random piece of advice, but avoiding heavy meals can definitely help you to sleep better. Especially in the summer months. Going to bed after a hearty meal or on a full stomach can cause problems, as you are still digesting, and this can cause discomfort while you are sleeping.


Try smaller meals and lighter foods to help your stomach settle before going to sleep.

Home Air Conditioning Units

Home air conditioning is another option to help you stay cool at night. You can adjust the temperature and settings to your own needs, and turn your air conditioning on or off whenever you need. They are a great choice if you find yourself uncomfortable during the summer, and will definitely help you to cool down at night time.

Having A Dark Room

Blackout blinds can prevent light and external heat from penetrating your bedroom during the winter and the summer. If you’re sensitive to light and struggling with the heat, blackout blinds can do a good job of regulating both light and heat throughout the summer months, helping you to stay cool.
