Summer has arrived along side some scorching temperatures. After braving the winter, many people welcome the warm weather with open arms, however the heat can have some negative affects on one aspect of your day-to-day life, your sleep. Nothing is worse than tossing and turning throughout the night in a hot, sticky bedroom. Most people sleep best in a slightly cool room, somewhere between 65° F and 72° F with adequate ventilation.
When you go to sleep, the temperature your body tries to achieve goes down. If the outside temperature is too hot or too cold your body struggles to hit that point, which results in a loss of sleep. If you do not have an air conditioning unit, we recommend closing all the blinds in your house during the day and keeping all the windows and doors shut. Using lighter blankets and linens can assist in better sleep as well. Sometimes taking a shower and bringing down your body temperature before bed will encourage you to go to sleep. We hope you are all able to enjoy some restful sleep during these warm summer nights.
