We love summer because of beachy days, fruity drinks, epic sunsets. However, we always have trouble falling asleep in summer. How to get restful sleep in summer?
1. Keep a cool room.
Temperature is an important factor. Keep your bedroom about 65 degrees. Look for a window or portable unit with a digital temperature readout if you don’t have central AC. Find a model that’s as quiet as possible.
2. Block out the light.
Summer light can be challenging when it comes to restorative slumber. It is good to have as dark an environment as possible because our eyelids are quite thin. You can buy blackout shades. You can choose an eye mask made from a breathable material like cotton if you like.
3. Invest in your bedding.
Inverting the best you can afford. In summer, investing high-quality cotton bedding because they are lightweight and breathable.
4. Be consistent.
Maintaining a steady sleep schedule may not be at the top of your list in a season that is rich with opportunities to stay up past your bedtime. You just need to do the best you can. Or, you can get outside and get lots of natural light during the day to build in consistency because your body needs a dose of light to help you understand when it’s time to power down and unwind.
5. Enjoy the silence.
Noise is indeed a major issue. There are so many noises, such as the late-night party in your neighbor’s backyard, your AC’s whirr and clatter, or chirping birds in the A.M. There are many factors beyond your control. It is difficult to eliminate noise completely. Seek another type of noise to cancel it.
