Nightly Routines to Beat the Heat: Tips for a Cooler Sleep

Nightly Routines to Beat the Heat: Tips for a Cooler Sleep

As the summer sun sets below the horizon, the heat often lingers, making it difficult to get to sleep. The right bedtime routine and smart bedding choices can create a cool oasis ready for restorative slumber in your bedroom. Let’s explore effective routines and innovative bedding products that can help you sleep cooler during the summer.

1. Embrace the Power of a Cool Shower

Taking a cold shower is the ideal way to begin your wind-down routine. It should not be a hot shower, not too cold, but just perfectly lukewarm to ensure a cooler core body temperature. By simply taking a cold shower before bedtime, you are signaling to your body that it is time to cool down and relax in preparation for deep sleep.

2. Hydrate Wisely

It might seem like a good idea to drink ice-cold water minutes before bed, but it can actually trigger temperature sensors in your body to increase your core temperature. Also, avoid drinking plenty of water. It is recommended that you drink room-temperature water, which effectively hydrates without causing a spike in your internal temperature for sleep, ensuring you remain cool and well-hydrated throughout the night.

3. Create a Breeze

The strategically placed fan is an obvious solution and can work wonders in circulating air and generating a cool temperature. To create a refreshing airflow in your room, place your fan near the open bedroom windows so that hot air will be pulled out and cooler night air will be drawn in.

4. Upgrade Your Bedding

To create a sleep environment that repels the excess heat at night, it is imperative that the right and breathable bedding is used. Offering cutting-edge solutions for cooling comfort, our collection includes:

  • Ultra Lightweight Cooling Down Comforter for Hot Sleepers: With its two pieces of mesh fabric designed for improved airflow, the Ultra-Lightweight Cooling Down Comforter is a game-changer. The fabric is extremely light and breathable, ensuring a comfortable temperature at night and that you remain cool without sacrificing comfort for optimal sleep.
  • Cooling Down Alternative Dual-Side Reversible Waffle Comforter: Experience the versatility of icy silk fabric on one side and a waffle design on the other. Flip it according to your preference for the night—either choice will provide a gentle, cooling touch against your skin on hot summer nights.
  • TENCEL™ Lyocell Cooling Down Blanket Set: TENCEL™ Lyocell natural fibers are a moisture-wicking fabric renowned for their natural cooling properties and temperature regulation.

  • Cooling Down Alternative Reversible Comforter: Doubling down on cooling innovation, this reversible blanket features icy silk fabric on both sides, offering a consistently cool-to-the-touch surface that invites peaceful sleep, even on the warmest nights.

5. Dim the Lights

In the hours before bedtime, dimming the lights can significantly help you signal to your brain that it’s time to rest. Your body’s natural sleep hormone, melatonin, is stimulated when low light levels are present, causing you to feel drowsy. When combined with a cooling environment and breathable material bedding, sleep is unbeatable.

6. Mindfulness and Relaxation

Take a moment to meditate or practice mindfulness at the end of your sleep routine. The act of focusing on your breath and clearing your mind helps reduce stress and ensures a cooler temperature, preparing you for a restful sleep.

Investing in specialized cooling summer bedding, made with natural materials, and incorporating these nightly basis rituals will set the stage for a comfortable and cool temperature at night during summer heat. Take advantage of these tips to ensure improved sleep health so that you wake up refreshed and prepared to face the day ahead.
