    With rising temperatures, many people are struggling with the challenge of getting a good night’s sleep.

    But there are things you can do to beat the heat.

    1. Avoid naps

    Hot weather can make us feel a little listless during the day as we use more of the energy in our bodies to regulate our internal temperature.

    But if you struggle to sleep at night, try to avoid daytime naps. Because when it’s hot, drowsiness can be costly – so save it for bedtime in the evening.

    2. Keep the routine

    Warm weather can encourage you to change your daily habits and routine. Do not do this. Because it can contribute to disturbed sleep.

    Skip suggested stories and keep reading

    Try to stick to your regular bedtime and routine. Keep doing the things you normally do before going to bed.

    3. Remember the basics

    Take steps to make sure your bedroom is as cool as possible at night.

    During the day I draw all kinds of curtains to keep the sunlight out of the bedrooms. And make sure you close the windows on the sunny side of your home to keep out hot air.

    And open all the windows, at night before you go to bed, to inhale the place and let in the air.

    4. Use thin sheets

    Reduce your bedding while keeping the lids close and close. Thin cotton sheets absorb sweat.

    No matter how hot it is in your bedroom, your body temperature will drop during the night. That is why we sometimes wake up cold.

    5. Cool your socks

    Using a small fan can make sense in hot weather, especially when it is humid.

    Because it encourages the evaporation of sweat and makes it easier for your body to regulate your internal temperature.

    If you do not have a fan, try filling a hot water bottle (which some people use when it is cold in winter) with ice liquid and use it to cool you down.

    Alternatively, if this is not possible, cool the socks in the fridge and put them on. Because cooling your feet lowers the overall temperature of your skin and body.

    6. Drink enough fluids

    Drink enough water throughout the day, but avoid very large amounts before bedtime.

    You may not want to wake up thirsty – but you certainly do not want to go to the bathroom in the early hours of your sleep.

    7. Think about what you drink

    Be careful with soft drinks. Many contain large amounts of caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system and makes us feel more alert and alert.

    Avoid drinking too much alcohol. Many people drink more when the weather is hot.

    Alcohol can help us sleep, but it encourages waking up early in the morning and lowers the overall quality of sleep.

    How do high temperatures affect the body?

    Drought: Drink enough water to replace what is lost through urination, sweating and breathing.

    a high body temperature: This can be especially problematic for those with heart or breathing problems. Its symptoms include tingling of the skin, headache and nausea.

    Fatigue This happens when you start losing water or salt from your body. Fainting, feeling weak or having muscle spasms are just some of the symptoms.

    heat stroke: Once your body temperature reaches 40 degrees Celsius or higher, you may experience heat stroke. The indications are similar to heat stress but the person may lose consciousness, dry out the skin and stop sweating.

    8. Stay calm

    If you find it difficult to fall asleep, do something to calm you down. Try reading, writing or even arranging your clothes.

    Just make sure you do not play with your phone or video games – blue light makes us feel less sleepy and play stimulates activity.

    Go back to bed when you feel sleepy.

    9. Think of the children

    Babies usually sleep regularly and deeply – but they can be very sensitive to changes in the family’s mood ‘and routine.

    Bathing in lukewarm water helps children sleep in warm weather

    Make sure you do not change your usual bedtime and shower routine just because it is hot.

    As part of a bedtime routine, the UK National Medical Services website recommends taking lukewarm water baths. Make sure it is not too cold as it will stimulate your circulation (this is your body’s way of staying warm).

    A child can not tell you if he feels too hot or too cold, so it is important to keep an eye on his temperature. Babies sleep best when the temperature is between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius.

    You can install a thermometer where the child sleeps or watches by touching his forehead, back or stomach to see if he feels warm.

    10. Do not think about it Many

    Most of us need about seven to eight hours of quality sleep each night to function properly.

    But remember that most people can function fairly well after a night or two of restless sleep.

    Although you may yawn a little more often than usual, you should be fine.

    These tips are based on suggestions from Professor Kevin Morgan, former director of the Clinical Sleep Research Unit at Loughborough University, and Lisa Artis of the Sleep Research Council. This article was first published in July 2019.
