Summer heat keeping you from your midsummer night’s dream?

If darkness and cool temperatures are the best combination for good sleep, then summer must be the worst time for sleep.  Higher summer temperatures can make it more difficult to achieve and keep the cool environment that works best for sleep.

Looking for quick tips to beat the summer heat and sleep well?

You can try taking a bath or shower before bed – stepping out of the warmth into a cooler room can make you feel cooler. Sleeping with wet hair will help keep your head cooler throughout the night, and may keep you from sweating more. Try sleeping naked, or with as little clothing as possible to decrease body temperature variability. Bedding made from special e-wicking fabric can help keep you cooler and drier.  And if you room has high sun exposure during the day, keeping shades or drapes drawn can help the room cool down at night.

Which way does your bed face?  An easterly facing bed in summer will have light come streaming in very early in the summer months!  If possible, turn your bed away from the window, or invest in some good light darkening window treatments to avoid waking up with the birds if you want to sleep a little later than they do.

We typically think of spring or fall as allergy season, but summer comes with its own allergy potential.  Air conditioning recirculates indoor allergens, and heat and humidity can cause poor outdoor air quality.  An indoor air purifier with a good filter may help reduce the causes of summer allergies. If you sleep with a snorer, you may find that the snoring gets worse in the summer.

Treat your sunburn – even a mild sunburn can impact your sleep.  The best treatment is to avoid the sun, but if you are outside, make sure you are using an effective sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.  Use a lotion that contains aloe to help cool and moisturize your tender skin.

The itching from bug bites always seems to be worse at night!  Anti-itch cream is available at your drugstore, or try some of these home remedies, like toothpaste to help with that pesky itch.
